Interior Design Masters - everything you need to know about series four
Host Alan Carr and judge Michelle Ogundehin return for a 4th season of this hit design show
Interior Design Masters is coming back to our screens this month for a fourth series, with Alan Carr and Michelle Ogundehin taking up their respective roles as presenter and judge once again.
The eight-part competition show sees aspiring designers competing to create striking interiors for everything from offices to shops to bougie cottage getaways.
Former ELLE Decoration editor Michelle Ogundehin returns as head judge of the show, setting a new challenge every week for the interiors enthusiasts, and then judging their efforts alongside a special guest designer. Previous seasons have included familiar faces from the interiors world such as Laurence Llewellyn-Bowen, Abigail Ahern, Matthew Williamson and Jonathan Adler.
What to expect in Interior Design Masters Series 4
"Another lineup of fantastic characters, each with their own view of what makes an Interior Design Master," Michelle says. "I love how they start with all their preconceptions, then go through the mill of realising that this is actually pretty difficult, and then how they start to consider different ways to do things."
Each episode will see the creator of the weakest design eliminated from the competition. The series winner will receive the professional opportunity of a lifetime - a contract with a leading boutique hotel.
So what qualities does judge Michelle want to see in a winner? 'I'm looking primarily for people open to learning, with a can-do attitude and a unique point of view. I can only bring out the best in someone who's prepared to accept that they don't know it all already, and no one wants to see design by numbers,' she says.
The best designers, whether just starting out, or firmly established, recognise that they are first and foremost in service to their client.
'It's so easy to fall into the trap of defaulting to old favourites or personal must-haves, but if it's not appropriate for the scheme, location, purpose or brief, then you have to be big enough to change it. That said, passion also goes a long way, as does enthusiasm!'
