New judge and internationally renowned interior designer Kelly Hoppen, MBE, is joining regular firm favourite Daniel Hopwood, a designer and a Director of The British Institute of Interior Design. At the helm, presenting and keeping his eye on proceedings, will be Architectural Historian Tom Dyckhoff, who, each week will be giving us his fascinating insight as well as the stories behind our streets. Kelly and Daniel will be mentoring and supporting 9 new talented amateur designers who will all be battling it out for the title of champion of The Great Interior Design Challenge. The amateurs will compete in a series of challenges - not only will their design plans come under the spotlight but their personal skills will be analysed too; they'll have to demonstrate great presentation and delegation attributes, with an ability to communicate with their teams made up of builders and decorators. They'll all be tasked with transforming similar rooms in neighbouring properties, as they work to strict budgets and set time allowances but the stakes will be high and the pressure intense as each episode/week one designer will leave the competition. The amateur designers will be scrutinized and analysed over 9 episodes and in the quarter and semi-final stages, they'll have the added pressure of trying to impress guest judges Michelle Ogundehin, Editor in Chief of Elle Decoration, as well as acclaimed stylist and former judge Sophie Robinson. Only one designer can win and be crowned winner of The Great Interior Design Challenge.
