The first episode of BBC new ‘The Great Interior Design Challenge’ aired last night. Back in June we announced that we had been asked by the BBC to help find Britain’s best amateur interior designer.
Applicants applied via our website to get on the show and now you can see the finalists competing in the new show on BBC2.

More about the show (from the BBC website):
The search for Britain’s best amateur interior designers begins with the first of eight heats. Would-be interior designers Sarah, Helen and James take on three large bedrooms in Edwardian homes in the leafy north London district of Muswell Hill. They have 48 hours, £1000 and the help of a builder to interpret and make real the homeowners’ briefs.
Vintage homeware designer Sarah has given herself a lot to do including upholstering a chair, something she has never done before. Asset manager James has to get the homeowners on-board with his bright colours and artist Helen is hoping to discover an Edwardian gem behind some built-in cupboards.
As well as impressing the homeowners, they must also satisfy judges Sophie Robinson and Daniel Hopwood. Only one designer can make it through to the quarter final.
