The Pinterest UK Interiors Awards celebrate the best of British interiors ideas, honouring the fine work of interior designers, bloggers, crafters and much-loved lifestyle brands.
Last year the awards were judged by a panel of renowned interiors specialists - this year, rather brilliantly, it was at the hands of the real experts, the pinners! Starting in February, people in the UK had the opportunity to nominate their favourite British interior ideas.
The categories ranged from Best DIY Idea to Best Use of Colour. Interiors is one of the largest categories to be pinned on the site, with 14 billion home decor Pins on the platform and more than 12 million ideas saved on Pinterest in the UK every month! We contribute greatly to that number, come take a look for yourself: Ideal Home's Pinterest (opens in new tab)
