As design professionals, it's incredibly important that we stay relevant and on top of what's going on in the world of design. Whether it's researching the latest products and color trends, or attending CEUs and various design seminars, all of which we consider part of our job here at GHID and a service we proudly offer to our clients. This also goes for checking out our peers, and what better way to access our inspirations, or competition if you will, than reviewing the various design awards handed out annually during Interior Design Magazine's Best of Year Awards.
The event was held on Thursday, November 29th this year, the day following Interior Design's Hall of Fame soiree. Let me just say, the beauty and talent narrowed down by the magazine themselves was astonishing. However, there must always be a winner. With that being said, check out GHID's winners of this year's BOY awards.
