Interior Design


Gorgeous design infuses a room's interior with life-enhancing energy. It's more than paint, carpet and furniture. Great design creates flow, removes obstacles, catches the eye with a cohesive palette of color and produces harmony.

Muse is deeply committed to interior design and its ability to move us all. The style is your passion, whether you are drawn to the classic, contemporary or eclectic. Bold or serene, we look forward to what we've never seen before in both style and quality.

Winning the coveted Interior Design of the Year award is a career-advancing achievement. Come and claim the recognition you've been waiting for.

Deadlines & Fees

Architects, builders, contractors, developers, engineers, business owners are encouraged to submit work that is in prototype or complete*. Winners are determined by one entry, and not an entire body of work, so careful selection should be observed.
2021 Entry Period Early Bird
(Oct 15 - Dec 17, 2020)
(Dec 18, 2020 - Jan 21, 2021)
(Jan 22 - Feb 25, 2021)
PROFESSIONAL 1st ENTRY $169 $179 $199
ADDITIONAL ENTRY $169 $179 $199

* You may submit an entry into multiple categories at the same time. The first Category will be charged as per the original submission fee. Additional categories (2 or more) will be charged as such.

Rather than increase the fee for each entry, fees are only charged in order to cover administrative costs like printing, mailing and data organization. For this reason, each participant is charged a flat $30 administration fee. When all participants pay the same low fee, those submitting more than one entry will actually pay less than if fees were on a sliding scale.

Work submitted must have been created within the last 5 years.

The Winner of the Interior Design of the Year award receives a complimentary, limited-edition of the prestigious MUSE statuette and certificate. Winning works will be highlighted on the main page of the MUSE Design Awards website, and published on all of its social media platforms for a full year.
