Every single issue of House & Garden highlights the best interior design projects from the UK and around the world, in a range of styles and created by both the rising stars and the established favourites of the design world. For more than twenty years, the magazine has published a list of the Top 100 Interior Designers working in the UK, setting a benchmark of excellence for the industry. Previously every three years, the Top 100 is now published annually, and this June's issue (out May 6th), sees the 2019 list revealed for the first time.
The Top 100 does not simply reflect the personal taste of House & Garden's editors; this is a collection which aims to be representative of as many different approaches to interior design as possible. From country house grandeur to strikingly modern newbuilds, cleverly-layered flats to charmingly 'undecorated' cottages, the creatives on this list can do it all, and often many different things at once.
Following the publication of the Top 100, House & Garden will also announce awards for the most impressive designers and projects of the year. The winner of last year's Designer of the Year award was Beata Heuman, whose latest project (pictured above) will also feature in the June issue. The new Designer of the Year award, sponsored by Farrow & Ball, will be announced in the July issue along with the winners of the other awards, including Project of the Year, sponsored by Element 7, which was won last year by Shalini Misra for her strikingly bold design of a west London townhouse. The Pineapple Award for Hotel Design, sponsored by Avis, went in 2018 to Susie Atkinson for her renovation of Beaverbrook, a country house hotel in Surrey.
2019 will also see three new awards added to the Top 100 roster. The Rising Star award, sponsored by SA Baxter, celebrates the most promising emerging interior designer on our radar in the last year. The gardens we feature are also coming in for their share of attention, with an award for Garden Designer of the Year, sponsored by Westbury Garden Rooms, due to be announced in the July issue. Finally, the Product of the Year award, sponsored by Decorex, will acknowledge the most beautiful interiors product to have come out this year.
