So , yesterday I had the honor of attending the inaugural Interior Blog Awards , hosted by Amara , at the super luxurious Rosewood London.
Nostalgiecat was, thanks to all your support, up for Best DIY blog!
It was a super-stylish affair, at a super stylish venue with a super posh dress code...
Being a jeans and t-shirt kinda girl, I think I scrubbed up well for the occasion...Ha!
I was in overwhelmingly great company, and being nominated for such a prestigious award alongside an impressive array of interior bloggers was not only humbling, but I also found myself starstruck at times, as I rubbed shoulders with some of my blogging/design idols (I wont embarrass myself by namedropping!)
I never had any anticipation of winning, but truly enjoyed myself knocking back champagne...and meeting some of my blogosphaere "friends" face to face was just amazing!
AND THE WINNERS WERE:
The Editors choice awards went to the fabulous Lucy Freedman of Lucy will show you
The award for best architecture Blog went to Dezeen
Best colour inspiration blog was won by Little big bell
The award for best designed blog went to Lobster and Swan
Moon to moon won Best design inspiration Blog

Best Luxury blog was won by Design hunter
The award for best newcomer went the gorgeous Sarah Akwisombe

Even though I didn't leave with an award, I still felt like a winner...it was an amazing experience and I've made some great new friends!
And of course I didnt go home empty handed...the Amara team had filled the goodies bags with some gorgeous treasures and treats!
