Is your home turning up the heat with its Summer style? Well, don't keep it to yourself! Instead, enter the CasaSugar Summer Style contest. By showing off your cool Summer home, you'll be eligible to win one of two $500 gift certificates to Crate & Barrel, which you could use on any of their cute Summer furniture and accessories, or whatever else your heart and home desire.
If you have some serious Summer style, send me photos of your garden, back yard, beach house, bedroom, patio, or deck — the possibilities are endless! Just show me photos that illustrate your pad's Summer style, along with a few words about what defines your personal Summer style. Feel free to mention projects that are represented in the photos, as well as sources for home furniture items and accessories, or ways that you've "summerized" your home or outdoor space.

If you're interested in entering this contest, start by snapping photos of your house. To enter, you must log in and post photos of your home, along with a short description of your home's summer style. If you're not already a TeamSugar member, just register here for an account. Then, submit photos to either the Su Casa group or by private messaging me. Contest ends Friday, August 8, at noon (PDT), and is only open to US readers. Click here for official rules.
To join the Su Casa group, just follow this link and click "subscribe" beneath the photo on the left-hand side of the page. Once you're subscribed, click Share in the upper left-hand menu of any TeamSugar page and choose what type of post you want to create. If you have just one photo and some text, create a blog; if you have a gallery you want to share, select "photos."
TeamSugar has a great primer on how to create a blog post, so check that out if you've never posted one before. Here's a rundown of the basic process:
- Add a Title and the Body (content for your post). Don't forget to click Check Spelling link and Upload an Image to make your post stand out!
- Post this to a group? Click on the dropdown menu and select the Su Casa group. You will only be able to see groups you're subscribed to, so if you haven't joined Su Casa yet, you will need to.
- Click on the dropdown menu and choose the Home and Garden Channel and add some keywords (use a comma, if needed!) in the Tags text box. Then click "I'm done" to view your post!
