Interior Design Masters contestants, winner, prize and spoilers from BBC Two series

Who won Interior Design Masters?

Interior Design Masters concluded on BBC Two – here’s all you need to know about the new series.


From who won to a full run down of the contestants, here’s a full recap of the show.

Interior Design Masters saw ten talented up-and-coming interior designers taking part in the biggest design challenge of their lives.

Presented by Fearne Cotton, the show featured design expert and former editor of Elle Decoration, Michelle Ogundehin, as the series judge.

Each week Michelle set the contestants a different commercial design challenge, then – alongside some big-name industry guest judges – scrutinized their designs.

Alongside the guest judge, she eliminated one designer each week, jeopardising their dreams of making a name for themselves in the fiercely competitive design world.

The prize for the winner was a life-changing opportunity, a commercial contract to design a bar at one of London’s top hotels.

Interior Design Masters spoilers and WINNER

Frank Newbold and Cassie Nicholas were the two finalists on Interior Design Masters and they went head to head in the final on Wednesday, October 2.

Arriving at the design studio, the finalists discovered that of course Michelle had left the biggest challenge until last: She told the pair they must take everything they have learnt throughout the seven tough challenges so far and put it into practise in the final.

The two finalists found out they were each being given an entire open-plan apartment to redesign, to try and turn into a home, and to help them, they could choose to bring back one of the designers to assist them.

Each of the finalists first met the homeowners as they realised they had to design for the client while also working hard to put their own design stamp on the properties.

They had five days to complete this ambitious challenge and the two designers took on two very different approaches, with one being super organised in the planning of every room, while the other designer piled the pressure on, leaving a lot of key design elements to the last minute.

For the final challenge, judging the apartments alongside Michelle, and making a welcome return from challenge one, was world famous fashion designer turned interiors expert Matthew Williamson, and new to the series was the highly regarded interior designer Naomi Cleaver.


When it came down to the final result, it was Cassie who won Interior Design Masters.
