For more than two decades, D Home’s goal has been to shine a light on the local talents who make our city a beautiful place to live.

In the same spirit with which it was founded, D Home has unveiled a new award program to honor those professionals—both established and up-and-coming—who have consistently demonstrated a dynamic, innovative, and distinct point of view. Through our inaugural Visionary Awards, we honor interior designers, custom home builders, and residential architects who have pushed the envelope and elevated the status quo in their respective fields. 

D Home is proud to unveil the finalists in the Emerging categories, who were nominated by their peers and chosen with the help of a panel of industry experts, as well as the first-ever recipients of the three Prestige Visionary awards. All honorees will be celebrated at a ceremony held on November 10, at which time the winners of the Emerging categories will be revealed.   

D Home congratulates the finalists and winners!
