The final week of the IDEA 2021 shortlist reveal begins with our other two Residential categories: Residential – Interior Curation and Residential Multi.
All shortlisted projects are listed below, each with a link to a dedicated page on the IDEA website where you can find more images and information about each project.
On Friday, we shared the finalists in our Colour, Hospitality and International categories.
Tomorrow is the last day of our shortlist reveal dedicated to our most highly anticipated Designer of the Year and Emerging Designer of the Year nominees, as well as our newest category – Community Services, which is dedicated to pro-bono projects and those undertaken for not-for-profit and community organisations.
Shortlisted projects were selected by our editorial team. A further round of judging by our judges David Flack, Jean-Paul Ghougassian, Meryl Hare, Domino Risch, Chelsea Hing, Ryan Genesin and Brahman Perera will determine the category winners, which will be announced in late November.

Below is the full Residential – Interior Curation shortlist:
This category is sponsored by Bloomingdales.
In 2021, we renamed our Residential Decoration category Residential – Interior Curation in recognition of the, often undervalued, work interior designers do on projects in which they had no input in the architecture.
Unlike the other two Residential categories, this category is concerned purely with the selection, customisation and curation of furnishings, both soft and hard, colour, surfaces and fixtures and fittings, along with the selection of finishes, fabrics, lighting, rugs, accessories, artworks and unfixed furnishing.
