In its 15th year, the 2018 Australian Interior Design Awards shortlist was announced last week to much industry anticipation. Designed to celebrate the best of Australian interior design across residential, public and commercial sectors, the awards are held by the Design Institute of Australia together with Architecture Media’s Artichoke magazine.
We always enjoy looking at the entries as they’re a great place to find interiors inspiration and there’s nothing better than checking out the work of creatives at the top of their field. It’s also wonderful to see Australian interior design getting the recognition it deserves.
This year saw more than 600 entries (the largest in the competition’s history) for projects throughout the country and overseas in places such as Asia, Africa, the Middle East, Europe and America.
After taking out the Residential Decoration Award last year, SJB continue their triumphant streak with five projects shortlisted including a North Bondi penthouse with a stunning emerald green tiled bathroom.
Arent&Pyke featured prominently in last year’s nominations also and this year, their ‘Treetop House’ features a stunning kitchen. The blue-grey marble island bench and complementary range hood is an inspiring combination.
The final awards will be judged by a panel of industry leaders and will be handed down on Friday May 25 at a ceremony in Sydney. We eagerly await the results.
