About the competition & Grand Designs Live.

A total of eight finalists including myself have been selected and given the amazing opportunity to feature our own sets for the duration of the exhibition 4-12 May at London ExCel. Building and bringing our concepts to life by sourcing and dressing our sets via supplier products which are available to the UK market, providing the consumer with an array of product options to inspire their personal home projects. This alongside an amazing list of exhibitors featuring at the exhibition with live stage presentations from the industry experts including the Grand Designers and Kevin McCloud.

My concept selected to be featured in the final is below. Inspired by my love of picture taking, exterior buildings with natural finishes, distress and texture such as concrete, stone and gorgeous marble. With industrial influences via elements of metal.
