Last week we held our tenth annual Crown Interior Stylist Awards. We were overwhelmed by the quality of the entries that we received across the three categories and although it was seriously tough to choose between them, there were three clear winners for us in the end. The big award of the night, Crown Stylist of the Decade, was taken by Harriet Paterson from Living Etc. We’ve been following Harriet’s work for years and she constantly astounds us with her fresh and contemporary styling, and her bold use of colour throughout. Quite simply, we just loved everything she submitted.
The next award was for the Crown Innovator of the Year. This was awarded to Caroline Reeves from Country Living, as we felt that she displayed the best real home makeovers and that she demonstrated a unique flair for inspiring anyone that looks upon her styling.
The third award was for the Crown Newcomer of the Year, this recognises the best up-and-coming stylist with 18 months or less experience in the field. Here we were thrilled to present the prize to Emilio Pimentel-Reid from Elle Decoration. Emilio showed a natural eye for styling and an unrivalled confidence with colour. We can’t wait to see how his career in styling progresses.We are so grateful to everyone that entered and to those that came along and supported the event. There aren’t many awards that solely celebrate the work of stylists and we are proud to be able to champion them and show them that they are very much a valued part of
our industry. Thanks everyone and please enter next year! our industry. Thanks everyone and please enter next year!
