New Design Britain Award Finalist 2011!

I have had some very exciting news this week, I have found out that I have reached the final 16 in the ‘New Design Britain Awards 2011’. New Design Britain is an important competition as it provides new designers the chance to show their talent in surface covering, furnishing, lighting, soft furnishing or accessories at interiors 2011. Interiors 2011 is a huge exhibition which runs from 23-26 January 2011 at the NEC, Birmingham and I am going to be there! It is a unique opportunity for retailers, interior designers, architects and contractors to compare an array of inspiring products from more than 600 exhibitors, including big brands, international trend-setters, leading interiors manufacturers and suppliers and up and coming designers.

During the show judging will take place by a prestigious panel of judges including M&S, House of Fraser, Stuart Jones, Heals, ACID and Barbara Chandler. Winners will be selected from each of the five categories and will be awarded placements at leading industry suppliers.

I entered two 3.5m hand screen printed wallpaper lengths from a collection. Only one of my designs will be exhibited, however I have to wait to find out which. My collection of wallpaper designs are designed to fit into modern kitchens, restaurants and cafes and are inspired by decorative ceramics, tiles and mosaics.
