Since taking home the crown on the BBC’s Interior Design Masters in 2022, Australian-born Banjo launched his own interior design business from the Isle of Mull, his home with husband Ro for the last eight years. In Designing The Hebrides Banjo brings his unique design style to the people who welcomed him into their community and other Hebridean islands. Banjo Beale Banjo’s passion for design, and his love of island life really does shine through in Designing The Hebrides, as he breathes new life into properties across the Islands.I'm kind of hoping I can find that perfect balance.

I can’t wait for everyone to meet the collectors, thinkers and tinkerers, from the Hebrides to Antipodes, who have opened up their world to share how we can all create cool, calm and collected interiors.” The intense pressure that goes on behind the scenes. I think I just lived and breathed the competition and each design. I'd go to sleep thinking about it and wake up thinking about it.

We coorie, which is a Scottish word, meaning a kind of hunkering down, like a warm hug. We light the fire and just hibernate for five months. It’s bleak though. Because it’s super dark and, cold, but there’s something really magical about it.’ Finding inspiration
