Designer of the Year


Krista Shugars

Pasadena, MD

This space seamlessly blends historic charm with modern, eclectic flair. Vibrant elements, from a colorful wool area rug to custom upholstery and a sparkling crystal chandelier, create a breathtaking atmosphere with multiple seating areas. Ten-foot windows are adorned with fuchsia silk taffeta panels, while a baby-grand Steinway piano and captivating artwork add elegance and cohesion.

2nd Runner Up

Kimberly Paulus

Sienna, TX

This bright, transitional master bath comes alive with luxe marble finishes, glistening decorative tiles in unexpected placement, shimmering chandeliers and show stopping brass highlights. Otherwise neutral, a soft blush stool invites while radiant florals kiss the mirror- all adding just the right amount of interest and color.

1st Runner Up

Marva Don Card

LaBelle, FL

Sweeping views and warm textures abound in this transitional great room. Cuddle up on the L-shaped sectional or recline in a performance leather chair. Floor-to-ceiling stationary two-finger pleated draperies with woven wood shades fill this grand room with stunning design. Mixed use of stripes, plaid, florals, and solids create a haven for relaxation. Everywhere you look you are wrapped in comfort.
