Jolindi van der Merwe was the overall winner of last year’s competition. Her entire home was featured in our April 2022 issue.
This year we’re taking the competition to a whole new level – if you’re the winner, your space will be featured on the cover of Home!

Top honours and a cover? 

Indeed! In this year’s popular Rookie Stylist competition in partnership with Mr Price Home, the overall winner will not only receive a Mr Price Home voucher valued at R15 000, but will also get a professional photoshoot done by the Home team that will be featured on the cover of SA’s best-selling décor and gardening magazine.

How cool is that?

Since we launched the Rookie Stylist competition in 2019, thousands of house-proud Home readers and Mr Price Home shoppers have flocked to ‘the Gram’ to share their spaces with fellow South African décor enthusiasts – but in year four we thought we’d shake things up a bit, and the heat is on!  

It’s no secret that we’re passionate about all things beautiful and love to celebrate the ways in which South Africans decorate their spaces, as does the team at Mr Price Home.

Every week, one lucky entrant will win a Mr Price Home voucher worth R2 000 (the recipient will be selected by the Home team) and, ultimately, the overall winner and Rookie Stylist for 2022 will receive a R15 000 Mr Price Home voucher to spend on whatever tickles their fancy.

The overall winner will also be chosen by the Home team. Come on, show us what you’ve got...


Take a photo of your favourite space in your home, using your cellphone (take it in natural light for best results). Do a close-up or step back for a wide-angle shot. You could choose an entire room, a stoep, a focal wall, shelf or bed – anything goes, as long as it’s pretty and styled to your satisfaction.  

Upload this picture to your Instagram account. If you don’t have an account, create one by downloading the app in the Apple app store or on Google Play.

Write a short caption; add the hashtag #mrpricehomerookiestylist2022; also tag @mrp_home and @tuishomemag – and off you go! The competition closes at midnight on 19 June 2022.
