Your Home Expo has announced the grand reunion of BBC Interior Design Masters Finalist Siobhan Murphy and fellow contestant Paul Moneypenny.
The pair quickly became firm fan favourites as contestants on series 2 of the brilliant BBC2 Interior Design Masters with Alan Carr, which attracted 2.7 million viewers on average each week.
The programme featured 10 aspiring interior designers competing for a life-changing contract.
Each episode saw the contestants undertake a different brief, under the watchful eye of internationally renowned Michelle Ogundehin, former Editor-in-Chief of Elle Decoration UK.
Since appearing on the TV hit, Yorkshire-based Siobhan’s life has undergone a transformation as radical as her creations on the show.
Following an 18 year career in the NHS, she has now realised her dream to pursue her passion for interior design full-time.
She is drawn to colours, patterns, textures and mixing modern pieces with vintage finds, converting the mundane into the marvellous.
Belfast native Paul, dubbed "The Wallpaper King", has been passionate about design from a very young age.
Honing his skills during his eight year career at a large independent wallpaper stockist, Paul is now expanding his horizons to his own line of soft furnishings, collaborating with long-admired brands, and looking to diversify into developing a wallpaper line, in his own inimitable style.
Siobhan and Paul’s on-screen chemistry has since flourished into friendship, and both are equally excited to showcase their creative talent together this September at Your Home Expo, Aberdeen.
The three day event, will see the duo on stage, sharing their creative expertise in a Q&A session, guaranteeing design hints, tips and plenty of laughter.
Both maximalists at heart, Siobhan will showcase her style in a room set at the event, while Paul will wow with a wallpapering masterclass.
These partners-in-design are looking forward to spending time sharing ideas and exchanging points of view while immersed in astounding design inspiration. A veteran of several home shows throughout his career, Paul is incredibly excited to once again be surrounded by like-minded design devotees at Your Home Expo.
Alongside industry leaders, including Aberdeen Considine and Tinto Architecture, Westholme Interiors, The Tidy Coo, Unique Boutique & Marigold and Mo are just some of the amazing exhibitors presenting their expertise & distinctive style at Your Home Expo, the first consumer show of its kind, at P&J Live, Aberdeen's state-of-the-art event complex.
Louise Stewart, head of entertainment, exhibitions and marketing for P&J Live: “This show is bursting with new ideas for the home, just what the people of the north-east need to look forward to after enduring many restrictions on normal life for so long”
Nina Briggs, event director said: “We are extremely excited to have secured Siobhan Murphy and Paul Moneypenny from BB2 Interior Design Masters.
