Ideal Wallpaper of the Year Awards

Last Thursday we went to the Ideal Home Exhibition for the Ideal Wallpaper of the Year awards.  I had been selected by the industry and Laurence Llewelyn Bowen as one of 5 finalists from a pool of 95 entries so to have got to this stage was exciting enough.  To be honest, it felt too exciting - I didn't know how to cope with so much adrenaline running up to the event.

The ceremony was larger than I had anticipated but as the day drew on it was clear that Laurence could definitely attract a crowd!  The filmed interview with him in front of  400+ onlookers was a bit of a surprise but it was so encouraging to hear what he thought of my work. What I hadn't expected either was how good it would be to see my work printed as wallpaper.  I loved it - the colours were right, the design worked as I had hoped and the scale gave it the impact I was looking for.

It was fantastic to meet the finalists Jen Moules, Katy Hackney, Martha Copinger Binns of Martha and Hepsie and Natalie Owen - it is such a highlight to make new friends in the industry.  Well done to all of you but particularly Katy whose design was voted winner by the public!  

I was positioned centre stage so when Laurence opened the envelope, Katy's name was staring straight back at me so I had plenty of time to check my expression - in fact Laurence then went into a preamble giving me nearly a whole minute of knowing that the winner was two down from me in the row before anyone else did - does that ever happen at the Oscars?

I was obviously gutted not to have won but it has been such an encouragement to be a finalist, hopefully this will become another spring board.
