So many interiors, so little time! Never fear, we have shortlisted our favourite residential, kitchen and bathroom interiors from the 2018 Belle Coco Republic Interior Design Awards for you to peruse! The full suite of categories includes commercial, hospitality, and the overall interior designer of the year award (with several names TDF readers will be very familiar with!).
Among the most unforgettable (in our humble opinion!) are Alexander and Co’s Palm Beach House in Sydney, which is a finalist for several awards. This dreamy coastal home places a European interior vocabulary in an Australian setting, with bespoke detailing.
In Victoria, Rob Mills Architecture’s Armadale Residence. is also nominated across two categories, and it isn’t difficult to see why! This personal project from the director of the architecture firm elevates the idea of ‘converted warehouse’ to a new, luxurious level (hello brass lined door frames).
Perennial TDF favourites Flack Studio are finalists for multiple awards, for their eclectic and personal design on the Burnewang North Residence. The dramatic bathroom, in particular, caught our (and the judges) eye.
The Beach House by SJB is selected for kitchen magic, while Arent and Pyke and Decus are being recognised for swoon worthy bathrooms.
In addition to these awards for specific homes, we are excited to see Bayley Ward being recognised in the shortlist for the ‘Emerging Star Design’ award, and the value of COLOUR in interiors being celebrated through the ‘Best Work with Colour’ category. We especially love Greg Natale’s fit-out of James Said Collection – green and pink – yes, please!
The winners will be showcased in Belle’s June/July issue, out this weekend.
