    To whom it may concern,
    I’m absolutely loving the Great Interior Design Challenge and would love the opportunity to apply for the next series.
    I’m a 50 year old American mother of 3 who is passionate about design. I did interior design at Middlesex Uni and have recently renovated my 19th century Vicarage.
    please let me know how to apply and where.
    All the best,
    Andrea Furlotti

      Hi Andrea,
      Thanks for getting in touch. I don’t think the process of application has begun yet for Series 3, but if you want to know more the best bet would be to email [email protected] and enquire about the next round of applications. Do let us know how you get on!
      Kind regards,

      Hi there, I have tried to email this to [email protected] but the message is always blocked so thought I would try here!

      My name is Amanda Sheridan, I am looking to apply for the next Great Interior Design Challenge.
      I am 30yrs old, currently renovating my 3 bedroom end of terrace with architectural salvage finds, (skip finds!) and my own artwork. I was recently contacted by the editor of the journal.ie who did a piece on my interior.

      https://www.thejournal.ie/amanda-sheridan-studio-flaneuse-5135932-Jun2020/

      I have done a few pieces of interior design for friends/family members but nothing professional.
      My degree was in French Arts/History of Art and this influence is always an undercurrent in anything I try to create, I love mixing elements of the past with modern vibrant colours. For me the test of a great interior is not just how it looks but how it makes you feel, and our home does nothing but give us joy and a sense of wellbeing.
      Interior Design has always been my passion in life, I hope that you may consider my application.

      You can also find me on instagram
      @ studio_flaneuse

      Kind Regards

      Amanda Sheridan

      Hi Isabel. We love this show too and a few of our students have applied to be on, but have not been on TV yet. I think if you already run your own business, you are not considered an amateur interior designer – so you may just have to watch instead! Let us know what other interior design TV shows you like too. Anne

      That’s great Abbey. Well done for applying – and do keep us posted how you get on. We love the show as it gives a realistic view of the world of designing for clients, working to a brief and within a time frame and budget.
      Don’t forget Abbey that we offer a City & Guilds accredited 5-day Design Week course and a 1-day Business School workshop in Cheltenham, if you need some more skills to help you realise your dream! Anne, Course Director

      That sounds like a great idea Suzanne!

      You will need to contact the show organisers, Studio Lambert directly – and here is the link with their details http://www.studiolambert.com/contact_uk.html or you could try the email address they put up after the final – which I think was [email protected].

      We are one of the leading providers of interior design courses in the UK – so if you would like some help before you apply – do check out our courses. We can teach you how to work with colour and create those all-important mood boards and scaled floor plans for your clients.

      Good luck and let us know how you get on!
