WINNER: GOLD FOR BEST INTERIORS DECORATION DESIGN
WHAT: A hand finished wooden height chart shaped like a jumbo ruler.
WHY: This huge, eye catching ruler really is a statement piece for kids bedrooms and several of our judges attempted to slip it under their arm and sneak off. We think they were joking… Measuring kids on the door frame has been a rite of passage in households all over the world but now there’s no need to worry about redecorating or moving house as you can add all your height notes to this beautiful portable rule. The judges’ comments were glowing: “I love this! It makes me feel like a Borrower! Magical!” said JDA18 Judge and Junior contributing Editor Ellie Crompton. “Genius idea, we were devastated when we redecorated over our measuring wall.” said Yvadney Davis, a Children’s fashion stylist and fellow judge.
WHERE: Family Rule
WINNER: SILVER FOR BEST INTERIORS DECORATION DESIGN
WHAT: High quality, sustainably made, hand painted solid oak alphabet blocks

WHERE: Maison Deux
WINNER: BRONZE FOR BEST INTERIORS DECORATION DESIGN
WHAT: Timeless Modern collages of precious family photos that would otherwise stay on phones or in computers
WHY: How many of us keep hundreds, if not thousands of photos of our most precious moments on our phones, praying that we’ve remembered to back them up or that we won’t lose our phones? The Junior team and JDA18 judges all put their hands up to this! Life in Squares provides a fantastic service that means all your pictures can be displayed on one stylish panel removing the need for a screen for kids to see photos and adding a lovely touch to a bedroom or living space. “In an age when everything is saved on screen it’s so nice to have proper memories up in the home.” said JDA18 judge and top children’s fashion stylist Yvadney Davis
