The Great Interior Design Challenge series 2

Rhodec-The-Great-Interior-Design-Challenge
The series recently returned to BBC2 after a nine month break. The shows format tasks three amateur interior designers to each decorate a room to a brief by a client and the winner goes through to the next round.

Each Interior Designer is given a budget of £1,000 and an upcycled project to help the judges Daniel Hopwood, award-winning architect and interior designer, and Sophie Robinson, ex-editor of BBC Good Homes and interior stylist – decide who goes through.

Episode three saw another set of new amateur designers head to Lavenham in Suffolk. Presenter Tom Dyckhoff tasks mother-of-two Leila, tea shop owner Kate and furniture restorer Scott  (above) with transforming crooked bedrooms in three grand medieval homes.

So far, not all the designers ideas have received admiration from the judges. Could you do better? Who will win?
