Interior Design Masters start date

Interior Design Masters

Up and coming interior designers will go head to head for a life-changing prize in a new BBC Two show.

Interior Design Masters will be hosted by Fearne Cotton and air over eight episodes.

The series takes ten talented up-and-coming designers all looking for their next big break, and throws them into the fast-paced world of commercial interior design where they will compete to win a life-changing contract for one of London’s top hotels.

Joining Fearne will be design expert and former editor of Elle Decoration, Michelle Ogundehin, as the series judge.

Each week the designers will be set a new commercial interior design challenge, ranging from shops to show homes and restaurants to hair salons. On each task, they will be tested on a whole range of skills as they attempt to work their magic and show off their design prowess to the judges.

Each week Michelle will be accompanied by a different guest judge, who will be on hand to offer their expertise, including Mary Portas, Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen, Sophie Robinson, Matthew Williamson, Abigail Ahern, Naomi Cleaver, Thomasina Miers and Jade Jagger.

Ferne said: "I am hugely passionate about art and design, and interiors have always been massively exciting to me. I hugely respect Michelle, our head judge, so I knew it would be a corker of a show!"

Michelle added: "The excitement for me about Interior Design Masters was that it delved deep into what it really takes to be a great interior designer and that it’s about a lot more than having a way with cushions and a thing for paint charts!"

Interior Design Masters will start on BBC Two from Wednesday 14th August, 8PM.
