Hey all! Guess what?? I have news! And it’s good news at that. Remember when you lovely bunch kindly voted for me in the Mineheart (MIDAS) Interior Design Awards, well I’ve only gone and been awarded Runner Up! And what an award to achieve it is. I actually can’t quite believe it! And want to thank each and every one of you for voting me through to the finals. It was an agonising wait whilst the panel of expert judges came to their decision. But that wait was finally over on Friday.
I feel absolutely thrilled to bits to receive this honour. I work so hard on this blog and my Interior Design business too. Not only did you all vote for me! But to then go before the panel of judges and receive 2nd place in such an fabulous line up is just amazing. So without no further ado here are the judges. All of whom are very well respected within the interiors industry and their peers.
