WINNER - Richard O’Gorman
Our judges were all amazed by Richard’s bright and joyful interiors. He is an incredibly unique and skilled designer who uses colour in a considered way to achieve really creative and beautiful visual illusions. His decorative style is original, inspiring, and anarchic in the best way. Our judges agreed that his “walls and ceilings are works of art” and utterly impressed by the way he demonstrates that “you can do so much with just a paintbrush”.
Our judges agreed that Greg is an amazingly talented and passionate interiors influencer. An honest designer, Greg shares both the highs and the lows of the renovations process and gives his followers real insight into his journey. In addition to his beautiful use of colour, prints and patterns, Greg writes impressively witty and engaging captions that are entertaining and humorous. Our judges praised him for the way that his incredible renovation journey “reads like a story” and for his “creativity, individuality and hard work”.
Our judges all found Amara incredibly inspiring and were in awe of the wonderful spaces she has created. She has an amazing talent for using lots of rich colour, texture and materials in her happy and wonderful home that complement each other so seamlessly. Our judges commended her beautiful account for being “small, but mighty” and loved that she shares “fabulous DIY hacks for renters” that can be easily followed.
