Where are the winners of the BBC Interior Design Masters now

After seven weeks of ambitious designs, painting mishaps, and bizarre DIY disasters, the third season finale of Interior Design Masters is here. Hosted by Alan Carr, the grand finale will air tonight (April 27) on BBC One.

Last week’s semi-final saw the final three designer luxury holiday lodges in the Cotswolds. Although he wowed the judges with his nautical-themed rooms, visual merchandiser Paul was the last design hope to be sent home, leaving print designer Amy Davies and cheesemaker and distributor Banjo Beale to take the final. .

For their latest challenge, the finalists will each revamp a trendy bar in London’s Soho district. And with a contract to design an apartment for a high-end resort on the line, it’s all to play for.

But where are the former Masters in Interior Design winners now and what have they been up to since leaving the show? Here’s everything you need to know.

Cassie Nicholas – Season One Winner

In 2019, Cassie Nicholas became the first-ever recipient of a Masters in Interior Design. She beat Solihull-born Frank Newbold in the final after impressing head judge Michelle Ogundehin with her imaginative yet functional designs.

The first-season winner graduated in fashion photography and started Dig Haüshizzle, a decorative antiques store, with her husband Edward in 2010. After receiving frequent requests to style other people’s homes, Cassie created Cassie Nicholas Studios in 2019.

According to her website, Cassie now works in residential and commercial interior design. She also works as a photographer and product and interior stylist and sources antiques for her own antiques brand.

Lynsey Ford – Season Two Winner

Alan Carr replaced former host Fearne Cotton for the second season of Interior Design Masters. The first winner of the revamped series was Yorkshire-born Lynsey Ford.

Experienced architect Lynsey, who was pregnant at the time of filming, beat fellow finalist Siobhan Murphy to win a career-defining commercial contract. After winning the competition, she was given the opportunity to redesign a two-bedroom suite at Another Place, a contemporary hotel in the Lake District.

The season two winner went on to work in interior design, working with commercial and residential clients to transform spaces. On her website, she also offers services for bespoke furniture solutions, upcycling old finds, and working with antiques.

The third season finale of Interior Design Masters airs Wednesday April 27 at 9pm on BBC One and BBC iPlayer
