It is the final of The Great Interior Design Challenge 2014 held in Cumbria, and finalist – Fiona and Martin – have their work cut out after making it through the semi-final round in Liverpool.
To win the title, each designer had to complete the interior design of three rooms each in a 19th-century calendar house in Cumbria.
The stately home is converted into individual apartments, and the two designers took on a living room, a kitchen and a bedroom each with just £4,000 and four days to work with.
After navigating their way through a lot of clutter in most of the rooms, they used their design flair to transform the rooms to impress both the clients and judges alike.
Architectural historian Tom Dyckhoff explained the unusual design behind this grand calendar house: “Each architectural detail is related to numbers in the calendar – 365 panes of glass representing the days of the year, 52 chimneys representing the weeks and 12 corridors representing the months of the year.”
After the four days had elapsed, it was time for judges, Sophie Robinson and Daniel Hopwood, to deliver their verdict and pick their winner.
They choose Martin as The Great Interior Design Challenge 2014 series 2 champion.
