Here at 91, we love to feature homes of real people, homes that have been designed and styled by their owners in a creative way, that reflect fully their lives, personalities and style. We love to champion creativity and small business in all it's forms, from homes and shops and studios, to photography and craft, so when we heard about the UK Interior Awards launching this year, we felt thrilled that real people and what they create at home and at work are going to be rewarded.
The awards are the brainchild of journalist Abbi Henderson and photographer Georgia Burns. They say: 'We wanted to celebrate humble and unbelievably talented homeowners and small biz owners. Bloggers, designers and both print and online publications are acknowledged by the many fab interiors-focused awards that already exist, however there’s a growing community of interior fanatics on Instagram that aren’t receiving an awful lot of recognition.'
There are nine categories and you can enter more than one. Some categories require a nomination and some you can simply enter yourself into....
- Most Inspiring Social Channels
- Best Influencer
- Best Independent Store
- Best B&B Interior
- Best Budget Interior
- Best Luxury Interior
- Most Creative Interior
- Best Room Revamp
- Best Eye For Interiors
The full details for entering are on the website, entries will open on the 9th February 2018 and close on 23rd March 2018.
The other exciting news is that as one of the judges, our editor Caroline will select one of the winning homes to feature in a future issue of 91 Magazine! She will be judging alongside stylist Pippa Jameson and print designer Anna Hayman, who you can find out more about here.
So, if you think your home might be worthy, pop the date in your diary and don't forget to nominate your favourite shops, B&Bs and influencers too! Let's all show support to our fellow interior lovers!
