For many, 2020 involved more time at home. Thanks to local designers’ hard work, families felt safe, comfortable and inspired in their surroundings. That’s why looking through the 2021 Design Award entries has extra meaning this year. For example, one interior designer's idea to create an additional dining area next to a wine cellar represents how a basement can transform into a space for togetherness among close friends. Another local builder and interior designer truly listened to their client. They merged contrasting styles in a resourceful way, giving a 1960s ranch-style home a modern farmhouse interior the owners love.

This year, we asked the Minnesota chapter of the American Society of Interior Designers to judge the entries based on a form curated for each category. We're excited to reveal the first six category winners that received the highest scores, but keep an eye out for the remaining seven categories in upcoming issues. Now, let these winning profiles help you re-imagine your home’s potential.
