By Clo Hutch @lashesoflife

As much as I sometimes wish I’d taken art, graphics or interior design at uni, I didn’t … and although my dreams haven’t been completely crushed, when I was told about this fab new competition by Valspar I had to share to hopefully make someone else’s dreams come true!

To celebrate its UK launch, American paint brand, Valspar, is calling to all budding interior designers to enter the Valspar Young Interior Designer of the Year Competition.

Valspar is searching for interior design students who are fearless with color and can help revolutionise the way the nation chooses paint for their homes.
