Making the cut
Today I am feeling brave. Very brave.
Today marks the publication of the results of our project: Finding the Top Ten Interior Designers and Decorators in Cape Town. This project was launched exclusively to deliver the definitive list of Cape Town’s best Interior Designers and Decorators. The A-list!
Artistic expression – by its very nature – is an emotionally charged domain, and having to pronounce judgment on artistic endeavor, is akin to disturbing a hornet’s nest. It must be approached cautiously and sensitively.
Negative feedback can easily be the fuse that ignites a swarm of powerful emotions, while unfavorable ratings may result in a sting of lingering resentment.
Nonetheless, this “Top 10” list will be published without fear or favor, because these results flow from a rigorous process-driven project, focused only on one primary objective: Discovering the best of the best in Cape Town – by Design.
There was no easy solution, no shortcut and no quick formula to rate or compare the huge talent, creativity and innovative potential of Cape Town’s top Interior Designers and Decorators, but this project has left no stone unturned in its quest to discover Cape Town’s very best Interior Designers and Decorators.
Premised on fairness and objectivity, this project used an innovative approach and a future-proof methodology to support its revolutionary “rating” philosophy. A new approach was an essential component of our aim to set the results of this project apart from, and way ahead of other similar projects. No other projects provide the level of fairness or accuracy required for rating, promoting and advertising the top Interior Design companies or the best Interior Designers and Decorators in Cape Town.
This project therefore started with a clean slate, choosing transparent, honest and uniform feedback over assumptions, opinions and self-promoting propaganda. This was the only way to ensuring its independence, credibility, authority and acceptability, while mitigating challenges to its legitimacy.
The results of this project are delivered as is – without embellishment and ornamentation. There is also no artistic or poetic license to mask deficiencies with superficial decoration. There in no room for consternation as the results of this project emanate from frank feedback and open consultation.
The ultimate list of Cape Town’s Top Ten Interior Designers and Decorators was compiled within the framework of important considerations, such as the ground-rules, qualification criteria and other pertinent factors. Together, these elements guided the selection process to finally illuminate Cape Town’s creme de la creme – the masters of the Interior Design and Decorating game.
This esteemed group of top Interior Designers and Decorators are the flag-bearers for the Interior Design industry in Cape Town. It is however important to note the following:
- Not all of these top Designers and Decorators are associated with famous Interior Design and Decorating firms;
- Not all of these top Designers and Decorators own popular Interior Design and Decorating businesses, and
- Not all of these top Designers and Decorators have had their portfolios featured in glossy magazines.
Yet, all these Interior Designers and Decorators are at the pinnacle of their profession. They fully deserve all the plaudits and accolades because…
- Their designs are striking; they captivate our eyes – alluring masterpieces of scale and size;
- Their decorations exceed our vision and desire – with one magical touch, they enthrall and inspire;
- Their natural affinity for colors and textures can never be taught in courses and lectures;
- Their innate flair for geometry and symmetry, can only be labeled “Interior Design wizardry”;
- Their work is breathtaking, it makes us excited, while their artistic twists leave us delighted;
- Their designs surpass average anonymity and they challenge our views and ideas of normality.
These are the qualities displayed by Cape Town’s Top Ten Interior Designers and Decorators. They are superstars – a cut above the rest.
We applaud and salute them – they are Cape Town’s very best!
