BC’s Best Young Designer Contest

17 Feb

Recently, I saw an ad on the back page of the 24 advertising a contest to find BC’s Best Young Designer. The six candidates were chosen from a large number of applicants, and were required to film a short video explaining why they felt they should be selected to participate. Each selected candidate was given $10,000-$12,000 to design 1 or 2 bedroom apartments in the up-and-coming neighbourhood of Morgan Crossing. There are plenty of amenities surrounding the apartments including fitness facilities, unbelievable shopping, and great restaurants opening up like no tomorrow. The contest allows anyone 18 or older to vote for their favourite design by visiting each apartment.Voters are automatically entered to win a draw for an iPad and a 46″ TV.

Yesterday, I had the pleasure of seeing all six of the uniquely designed apartments and voting for my favourite design. Here are some pictures from each of the apartments. My favourite apartment was designed by the only male in the competition, Daniel Meloche. The colour scheme he used was refreshing and modern.

Jennifer Scott’s Master Bedroom

The results of the contest will be announced on February 28, 2011. For more information, check out the contest website. I hope that either Daniel or Joanna win!
