Six hours of judging and 350 entries later, we have our Interior of the Year 2016 finalists.
This year's judges, NZ House & Garden editor Sally Duggan, art director Richard Brunton, interior designer Natalie Du Bois and architect Wendy Shacklock, spent an extended judging session in the NZ House and Garden offices selecting 20 beautiful rooms as the finalists for Interior of the Year awards 2016 (see full list below).
NZ House and Garden photographer Jane Ussher will now travel the country, photographing all the finalists' rooms. These images will be used by the judges to make their final selection of winners.
The Interior of the Year 2016 winners will be announced at the awards ceremony in late October and revealed in the November issue of NZ House & Garden.
