I have been so busy recently that I've not had time to write about the recent IDFX awards (recognising excellence in residential design) that took place last month........
There were 12 design categories in total including 'Best Bathroom', 'Best Kitchen', and most importantly to me, 'Best Lighting Project'.
After pondering a while about which of my projects to submit I decided on a couple that I thought met the criterior of 'pioneering, beautiful and inventive'. I put together the submissions and then thought nothing more of it until I received an email saying I had been shortlisted! I was delighted. Apparently, there had been hundreds of entries from all around the world and some rather large names too!
I attended the champagne reception where the winners were announced with Rachel Campbell (a talented interior designer who I’ve worked with on a number of projects) and had a fabulous evening. On this occasion I didn't win but I was thrilled nonetheless to be in the top 5 of such prestigeous awards.
