Judging the Luxe RED Awards

This year, I was honored to judge the 2018 Luxe RED Awards with an esteemed panel of colleagues including Founding Editor-in-Chief of Luxe, Pamela Jaccarino, along with Molly Hunt, Kathryn Ireland, Tom Kligerman and Ellie Cullman. Hosted by Luxe Interiors and Design, the awards called for projects across the United States showing dedication to excellence in residential design. With a thriving design community, it was clear to see a plethora of diverse talent and creative minds behind outstanding work.

Project submissions were divided across 9 categories related to the fields of interior architecture, interior design and landscape architecture. Comprised of two components, the awards were divided into project categories and a readers’ choice vote. Out of 1,500 submissions, 135 regional winners and 9 national winners were selected with each project judged on overall aesthetics, the regional relevance of the work, and the creativity that went into the project.

National and regional winners were announced March 1 and recognized at Luxe RED Awards ceremony on April 25. In addition, winners were featured in Luxe Interiors + Design magazine on newsstands May 2018. Take a look at some of my favorite winning projects.  I’d like to extend my deepest congratulations to the talent behind the phenomenal submissions and winners of this year’s Luxe RED Awards.
