UCOL colourists claim awards
UCOL Interior Design students Simone Duckett and Sharon Dorman have wowed the judges, and their lecturer, at a national industry event.
The pair, who completed their Diplomas in Interior Design in July, each received a Resene Total Colour Rising Star Maestro Award for their residential colour schemes, at the Resene Colour Awards 2011.
The prestigious industry event attracts the best of the best in New Zealand architecture and interior design.
Interior Design lecturer Leah Burns says, “It’s an absolutely fantastic result considering they were up against architectural degree students as well.”
The judges described Sharon Dorman’s colour selection as ‘delightful and unexpected’ and said the “complementary colours and the use of proportions shows a high level of colour understanding.”
They said Simone Duckett’s residential colour scheme was “well thought through, entirely appropriate for the brief and thought has been given to whether it is achievable and appropriate.”
“It is great news for our students, our lecturers and our course as a whole,” says Leah. “We are very proud and exceptionally happy!”
