Hilden Style Awards: Meet The Judge – Jeremy Tring

With just under a month to go before the end of this year’s Hilden Style Awards, we’ve been delighted and impressed with the calibre of entries we’ve seen so far. However, there’s still time to enter so get your photos in and your venue recognised.

The Hilden Style Awards are a unique online awards aimed at discovering the most stylish interior design choices of independent hotels, restaurants, B&B’s, guesthouses and, for the first time this year, care homes.

We are proud to have an esteemed panel of judges who will be trying to find the ‘unsung heroes’ in interior design and the lucky winners will receive a whole host of fantastic prizes including a double page spread in our annual Style Guide – an interior design bible going out to over 75,000 people, £500 to spend at, a case of champagne and a pair of sumptuous Liddell bathrobes amongst others.

This week in our series of Meet The Judges posts, we meet Jeremy Tring, editor of Eat.Drink.Sleep magazine, an industry leading publication going out to over 50,000 bars, restaurants, and hotels across the UK.

About Jeremy Tring

Jeremy works closely with restaurants and hotels whilst overseeing, writing and designing content for the magazine whilst maintaining close relationships with external parties such as PR agencies to ensure the very best in hospitality is represented.

What made you decide to be a judge this year?

It was interesting for me to get a look into how hotels and other establishments have styled themselves, with a particular interest into the trends and patterns which we regularly see in the magazine.

What do you think will be some key trends over the next 12 months?

I would expect some of they key trends over the next 12 months to be the ever-growing use of technology within the style of hotels and also how the hotels work seamlessly with that technology. We focus heavily on technology and the impact and importance of it in Eat.Drink.Sleep.

In a highly competitive hospitality market, how do you think the design and style of a hotel or B&B may influence the decision to stay?

The design and style is very influential on people’s decision to book and stay at a hotel or B&B – especially with the modern way of consumers searching for a place by going online and basing their decision on photographs. The way that the hotel is portrayed in those pictures is a vital factor.

A lot of modern restaurants don’t use table linen anymore. How important do you think table linen is as part of the restaurant’s design?

At Eat.Drink.Sleep, a  number of topics are dedicated to fabrics and linens throughout the year and table linen is a big part of this as it can become another key styling point of any restaurant.

How important do you think stylish design is within a care home setting, taking into account that it needs to be functional and practical?

The design can help people feel comfortable within that environment which is ultimately the key for care homes. If someone is comfortable with the design, they are more likely to be comfortable in the surroundings. This ties in with the design needing to be functional as it all enables a settled and comfortable environment.

What do you think will set an entry apart from the rest this year?

Uniqueness, subtle styling choices, authentic use of furniture and furnishings  and the use and integration of technology (where applicable) as this is always a real focus in our magazine.
