Design Centre Stories

Post with the Most

Annamaria Papayova is the winner of Focus/17’s Blogging Award, given to the blogger who best captures the spirit and themes of the event. The concept of ‘360 Degrees of Design’ was at the heart of Annamaria’s perceptive post (read it here); she covered it all, from Tony Marklew’s floral displays to Access All Areas showroom happenings and innovative new launches. The award was judged by Jenny Gibbs, principal of KLC School of Design, interior designer Samantha Todhunter and Grant Pierrus from design blog Interior Style Hunter. The judges felt that, besides Annamaria’s infectiously enthusiastic response to the show, she also kept a strong and distinctive voice throughout; they also praised her photography and strong visual sense.
