Each year, interior designers, industry professionals and home decorators across southwest Missouri pour innumerable hours into local home projects. We’re passionate about recognizing these visionaries who beautify our local surroundings, so each year, we ask them to nominate their best projects in our Design Awards Contest. For our 2023 edition, board members from the Michigan chapter of the American Society of Interior Designers determined the winning entries based on criteria tailored to each category. This feature highlights the winners for categories 1–6, and the remaining winning entries will line the pages of our upcoming issues. As you click through, we hope these versatile designs resonate with you and help you reimagine your home's potential.
