Although good interior design often looks effortless, any designer will assure you it's not. This is why year after year, we are always impressed by the amazing entries we receive for our annual Interior Design Awards Contest. As entries pour in, we marvel over the perfect balance each space strikes between beauty and function. This year, we landed on 10 categories for contestants to enter and we received 117 entries. Our judges from the Oklahoma ASID Chapter made the final call on the winners based on aesthetics, design skill and narrative explanation. As you flip through the pages, take a moment to think about how each detail in the homes, from the kitchen backsplash to the throw pillows, was a decision made with extreme care. Allow yourself to get lost in the photos and dream up new plans for your own home.
