2016 Design Awards

(page 1 of 15)

Good interior design strikes the perfect balance between beauty and function, spaces that demand to be looked at in awe and lived in comfortably. That’s exactly what this feature does, too: You’ll stare at the beauty in the photos and picture yourself living in these dream rooms. Last winter, we asked all of 417-land’s interior designers to show us their best projects for our annual 417 Home Design Awards contest. We collected all 89 entries and sorted the gorgeous and innovative designs to send to the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) Tennessee Chapter. Their team of professional interior designers judged each project based on aesthetics, design skill and narrative explanation. We received the highest-scoring entries and our Creative Director Heather Kane toured each finalist home in person to take in the beauty and functionality for herself. The following pages show off the winners. Get lost in the photos, and then start planning your very own dream home.
