    Celebrating interior design

    Call for Entries is currently closed and judging is in progress. Thank you to all who submitted an entry. Stay tuned.

    VOTE For Your Favorite Design

    In addition to our formal judging process, once again we want you to vote for your favorite design. There are no specific criteria, simply look through the designs and select the one you like best (1 vote per person please).  The winning entry will be recognized at the event and presented with an award certificate.  Designs will be uploaded in July.

    WHAT IS "IDEA"? 

    IDEA stands for Interior Design Excellence Awards.  The competition’s purpose is to celebrate outstanding examples of designed interior spaces. It is in recognizing the work of our peers that we have the opportunity to promote public awareness of design excellence, elevating the interior design profession.


    Location: The Riverview Room, New Orleans
    Time: 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
    Attire: Appropriate for a cocktail party. We encourage garden party-inspired attire to help make the evening special and festive. (2017 Pantone Color of the Year: Greenery)
