The Great Interior Design Challenge

EPISODE 2: SALTAIRE MODEL VILLAGES

It's the second round of the first heat and the three amateur designers are actor and director Nicholas, marketing assistant James and event stylist Anna.

They must transform a living room each in three Grade 1 Listed former workers' cottages in the pretty town of Saltaire.

Nicholas is reaching out to his spiritual side as his client wants a Zen inspired relaxing consulting room but has he bitten off more than he can chew with an elaborate Japanese inspired scheme. Will his client like it?

Anna meanwhile has to breathe new life into a lack-lustre living room for her client but will she be able to give it a modern masculine bachelor pad makeover? And will the judges think her schemes are manly enough. 

James is also going to have a testing time trying to fulfil a Scandi brief for his homeowner but can he finish it to his own high standards?

They'll also have a three hour window in which to complete this week's Creative Challenge.

They'll each have a thousand pounds, three days and a small team to help deliver their schemes. Expectations are high from their clients and the judges and they will decide who has done enough to stay in the competition - and who will go home.

EPISODE 3  HIGHGATE GOTHIC REVIVAL

It’s the last of the heats and this time our group of amateur designers are transforming rooms in Holly Village, a unique collection of Grade 2 listed properties in North London.

Our designers are Richard, an artist from West Yorkshire, Shaida a freelance makeup artist from Northampton and Susanne a solicitor from Loch Lomond in Scotland.

They each have the task of transforming a bedroom in imposing Victorian Gothic cottages.

Richard is reaching out to his “Industrial “ side for his client who wants a chic hotel look but will his original art work and use of “raw” natural materials go down well with his homeowner? Can he finish his bedroom on time and to the homeowner’s specification when a delivery goes wrong?

Meanwhile Shaida finds that even though her brief from her client matches her own personality, it doesn’t mean that her design will be plain sailing. Working to the specifications and constrictions of period properties proves quite challenging and will Shaida who has a love for all things Moorish - be able to marry gothic and romantic into her Moorish plans?

And a peaceful muted zen like room is a testing brief for Paisley pattern loving Susanne.  Challenged by incorporating the homeowners’ bulky furniture and technology, Susanne has to draw on all her design charm to impress.

And of course they’ll have a three hour window in which to complete this week’s Creative Challenge.

They’ll each have a thousand pounds, 48 hours over three days and a small team to help deliver their schemes. Expectations are high from both their clients and the judges.  Who has done enough to stay in the competition – and who will go home?
