Time is short. Have you entered the prestigious A’ Design Award and Competition yet? Once again we are sharing some of our favourites from previous years’ winners and more importantly how you can enter your own designs. With over 100 categories the A’ Design Award and Competition is the world’s largest design competition. But it is not just an award. It is an indicator of quality and perfection in design, recognized worldwide, your design front and centre before design companies and professionals. Entries will be judged by an international jury panel of scholars, professionals and media members (you can check out the methodology here) and the benefits to the winners are inspiring. The trophy, of course, an invitation to the gala night, a certificate of quality, free sales listing at SaloneDelDesigner, inclusion in the prestigious A’ Design Award and Competition exhibition and World Design Rankings and the yearly ResultBook but even more importantly press, PR, introduction to industry professionals and companies and international exposure.
From the Good Industrial Design Award, to the Good Architecture Design Award. The Good Product Design Award to the Good Communication Design Award. The Good Service Design Award to the Good Fashion Design Award and so many more. Excited? Inspired? Ready to take on the best of the best design from around the world? The deadline for early submission is September 30 (yes that soon!) and results will be published on April 15. Of course we will be bringing you the results as well. You can find out exactly what the A’ Design Award and Competition is here and register here. Now on to some past winners…
Thoughts on millennial pink? Over the trend? Seen enough? I felt that way until I saw this cute as a button apartment by Washington D.C. based Zoë Feldman Design. So cheerful, so warm, so inviting. May I say so rosy? It puts a smile on my face.
I came across this Stockholm apartment on sköna hem and did a double take for a couple of reasons. First, it was suspect that this was a Swedish home. Those lovely Swedes aren’t exactly known for their colourful homes. Second, it was so unique and over the top that I needed to review a second and third time to make sure I didn’t miss anything. A layered space is always a win in my book. I want to discover something new at each glance. If I can evaluate a room in its entirety in 3 seconds, I am bored. Kudos to designer Pontus Nilvander for holding my attention for well beyond 3 seconds. (Photos: Johan Carlsson)
It’s like I say time and time again. If you have to drag yourself into work on a weekend it helps if it’s somewhere stylish. The New York offices of architectural firm Ike Kligerman Barkley.

It’s about time I feature the work of London interior designer Robert Kime again; the last time was in 2017. It’s about time is a key phrase here as his spaces transport you to another era and the magic he creates in these centuries-old homes is so inspiring. Restoring an old home and bringing the interior back to its former life would be a dream. Speaking of dreams….that space above. I can’t get enough!
