Andover’s La Di Da Wins Muddy Stilettos Award

La Di Da's Steph Briggs & Muddy Stilettos Leela Bennett

La Di Da Interiors based in Bridge Street, Andover have won a prestigious Muddy Stilettos Award in the Best Interiors Store Category for Hampshire.

Muddy Stilettos Hants launched in February 2017 with ex-national magazine journalist and local resident Mary Malyon as editor. These were Hampshire’s first Muddy Stilettos Awards designed to support, encourage and celebrate the very best independent, lifestyle businesses in the county.

The winners party was held at the brand new White Space in Alresford, with much fizz and merriment for all.

La Di Da Interiors has grown and developed over the last two years and this award is a reflection of the rejuvenated business.

Owner, Steph Briggs commented “We have a small team that constantly strive to exceed customer expectations. We love what we do and are delighted to have been voted into first place by our customers. It’s a fabulous way to be recognised.”

Started in 2012 by ex Independent and Red journalist Hero Brown to cover events and businesses in Bucks & Oxon, Muddy Stilettos has since expanded into 16 counties including Hampshire.

Muddy Stilettos was a finalist in the Best Arts & Culture category of the UK National Blog Awards 2017.

La Di Da Interiors can be found at the rear of 34 Bridge St, Andover SP10 1BW. Call on 01264 366200 or go to the website at www.ladida-andover.com
