An interior designer is hoping that her triple nomination for national success can inspire confidence in her own ability.
Rebecca Reynolds has only been working for Sudbury-based KSL – a kitchen and bathroom specialist – for four years, her first job after completing an interior design course at University Campus Suffolk, in Ipswich.
Already, her considerable talents have been recognised by the Kitchen, Bathroom and Bedroom Specialists Association (KBSA), with Mrs Reynolds shortlisted in three categories for their national awards.
The 26-year-old is in the running for kitchen designer of the year, young designer of the year and the kitchen concept award – meaning she has accumulated more nominations than any other person in the country.
While clearly not lacking in talent, Mrs Reynolds admitted she can lack the confidence in her own design work and said she hoped the nominations and possible awards would increase her self-confidence.
“I’m quite excited,” she said. “It’s the first time the company has entered me for any awards.”
Never originally intending to specialise in kitchens and bathrooms, the Shimpling -based designer said she “enjoyed the challenge” and could now see herself staying at the firm in the long-term.
“We’ll see, but all my family are in the area,” she said.
