The search is on for New Zealand's most beautiful room - and the overall winner will receive a prize package valued at $11,000.

NZ House & Garden's Interior of the Year awards showcase the country's most fabulous single rooms. (Two of last year's winning rooms are shown above).

"Last year's winners showed the world-class creativity of Kiwi homeowners and decorators," says Editor Sally Duggan.

Entries poured in from all over the country and winners ranged from a sweetly perfect Lower Hutt nursery to a country kitchen (complete with a glassed-over well in the floor) and a Canterbury shed transformed into a cheery party central.

"One of the great things about these awards is that if you're like most Kiwis you probably live in a 'work-in-progress' home," says Sally.

"But with these awards that doesn't matter - you only need one completed, fabulous room to enter."

Last year's winners are still buzzing about the awards. Tania Clarke, of Lower Hutt, whose yellow and caramel nursery won the creative space award in 2013 said: "I had a fabulous time at the awards evening. Winning was the absolute icing on the cake. It felt so special."

Entries are open to both homeowners and professional interior designers and architects and there is a $1000 cash prize in each category: kitchen, living room, bathroom, bedroom, most creative space, indoor/outdoor flow.

The supreme winner wins a $10,000 luxury Huka Lodge experience.
