The categories include: Best Bath Space, Best Kitchen Space, Best Living and/or Dining Space, and Best UK Interior; there are separate distinctions for professionals and for amateurs.

Five finalists within each category were selected and Remodelista readers are now asked to vote, until August 4, on their fave projects.

This year's judges included Deborah Needleman, former editor of T Magazine; interior designer Sheila Bridges; Sam Hamilton, owner of March in San Francisco; and writer-designer Rita Konig.

Among the professional finalists: a Wine Country Farmhouse by Bohlin Cywinski Jackson; a Glen Park, San Francisco Powder Room by CSS Architecture; a thatched cottage kitchen in Alresford, in England, by Fawn; and a Brooklyn kitchen by Sarah Jefferys Design.

Amateur entries encompassed projects as varied as a southern-style apartment in Queens, New York; a Los Angeles residence inspired by pioneer Daniel Boone, and a contemporary restoration of a Nottingham, England, countryhouse.
