Interior designer Daun Curry, who specialises in high end residential, retail and hospitality projects, champions a design philosophy of innovation and effortless liveability, fusing the personal, practical and beautiful.
She was recently cited by Vogue magazine as an interiors talent to watch, and her work has been featured in Architectural Digest, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal and Elle Décor.
Her current work includes a waterfront estate in the Hamptons, a major renovation of a Modernist house in Los Angeles and several apartment residences in New York City, while recent projects include the New York flagship store for luxury jewellery brand Jemma Wayne and a series of penthouse suites at the Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas.
‘We are proud to announce New York’s, Daun Curry as the 2019 International Interior Designer of the Year,’ said Martin Waller, Founder of Andrew Martin. ‘Daun’s cool metropolitan interiors are sprinkled with witty and quirky elements that give her work a truly special sheen.
‘Daun’s journey from her backwoods upbringing in rural Florida without even a TV, to the bright lights of New York and Las Vegas is a timeless tale of talent and endeavour.’
Its the 23rd year of the prestigious Andrew Martin International Interior Designer of the Year awards programme, which sees designers from all six continents take part. The awards are judged annually by a celebrity panel.
