The Awards will celebrate every type of interior design, from the largest commercial project to the smallest residential dwelling. In addition, 2 new landmark prizes will be awarded – the Interior of the Year Prize, which will be awarded to the best interior design project in the UK and the Anna Whitehead Prize, which will be awarded to the best achievement in sustainable interior design.
