“This year’s group of finalists was the strongest and most varied we’ve seen yet, with projects ranging from a single-room, glassed-in retreat in Sullivan County, N.Y., to a revamped terrace house (with plasterwork done by the owners) in the U.K.,” says Julie Carlson, editor-in-chief of Remodelista.
“This year’s entries in our Gardenista Considered Design Awards contest showed an amazing range of garden styles and sizes, each so full of its own personality and unmistakable passion,” says Michelel Slatalla, editor-in-chief of Gardenista. “Our readers clearly believe outdoor space is living space and nothing could be more exciting to us.”
Design enthusiasts and professionals in the U.S., U.K., and Canada (excluding Quebec) submitted more than 4,600 home and garden photos as part of entries from 34 states (and D.C.) in categories that span the entire home. From there, the pool of entrants was narrowed down to a set of finalists by guest judges Sheila Bridges, interior designer; Sam Hamilton, owner of March in San Francisco, Calif.; Deborah Needleman, design editor; and Rita Konig, writer and interior designer.
