A phone call from a production company in March 2018, kick started a somewhat crazy yet fun journey that I am very excited to share with you, starting next Wednesday, 14th August at 8pm on BBC 2.

Interior Design Masters – a new Interiors based competition produced DSP and broadcast by BBC 2 and Netflix Worldwide, it will be hosted by Fearne Cotton and will see myself and 9 other designers battle it out over 8 weeks to win a commercial contract with a top London Hotel.

I have to be honest, it all felt like a dream until the big press reveal last week.  It was at times tense with challenges I don’t usually come across in my job such as; not undertaking site surveys or meeting clients to take their briefs prior to embarking on the installation phase of a project and, of course, being a TV show, the squeezed budgets and timelines!  But it was immense fun and a fantastic experience to work with the other designers who I didn’t know before the show and have access to talents such as Matthew Williamson and Michelle Ogundehin.
