This year’s Kitchen Design Project featured an exhibit by Gardner Interior Concepts – one of Cape Town’s premier Kitchen Designers.

The brief for the 2017 Kitchen Design Project – as defined by Franke SA – was simple (no pun): ‘Simplicity in Design’.

The Kitchen Design exhibitors used products supplied by Franke SA and were assessed on how well they incorporated the signature style in terms of design, materials and color usage.

Listen to your Home

Is your home speaking to you?

Are you listening?

What is your home saying to you?

The design of your home should speak to who you are, and have a positive effect on your body, mind and soul. Your home is your castle, your sanctuary and your place of refuge. It’s where you live, relax, socialize, rest and heal.

GIC-Interior-Design-Commercial-Business-Office-Shop-Fitting-Cape-Town-Modern-A01

The design of your home includes the structure, interior, exterior and the decorations. The colors and textures you choose are also important. Aesthetics, accessories, art, personal style and taste add to the overall effect that your home has on your well-being.

GIC-Interior-Design-Commercial-Business-Office-Shop-Fitting-Cape-Town-Modern-A02

There is empirical evidence to prove that our environment has a profound effect on our emotions – our moods, perceptions and state of mind. The psychological triggers emanating from our environment may manifest physiologically, if the effects are overwhelming or continuous.

GIC-cape-town-interior-designers-custom-built-bespoke-kitchen-design-3-cape-town

We’ve all heard people say: “Something about that house is not right…”, or “Something about that house unsettles me…” or worse still, “That house makes me feel ill…”

Nobody relishes the thought of having their home described in such unflattering terms. So, what should you do about what your home is saying to you and to others?

GIC-Interior-Design-Company-Custom-Built-Bespoke-Interiors-Home-Office-Commercial-Shopfitters-Cape-Town-450A

Has any of the following thoughts popped into your mind repeatedly at any time?

  • “I need to fix these cupboards…”
  • “I must change the color of the kitchen…”
  • “There’s not enough light in this room…”
  • “It’s time for a remodel…”
  • “This room needs a makeover…”
  • “There’s not enough space for everything…”

GIC-Custom-Built-Bedrooms-Cupboards-Walk-In-Dressing-Rooms-Closets-Designs-Cape-Town-102A

These thoughts are your internal responses to the messages emanating from your home. It may be time to look a bit deeper and ask yourself the following questions…

  • Am I proud of my home?
  • Is my home still my fortress?
  • Does coming home make me feel good?
  • Does my home inspire, revitalize, rejuvenate and energize me?
  • Am I comfortable and at peace in my home?
  • What options do I have to improve my home?

GIC-ft-custom-built-kitchen-design-cape-town-7-Interior

The answers to these questions may be self-evident, if you find that…

  • You cannot organize or manage your shelving, storage and packing space;
  • You are spending less time in your kitchen, bedroom or bathroom;
  • Your decorations, cabinets or cupboards suddenly start to irk you;
  • The color, layout or style of one or other room suddenly irritates you;
  • You feel that your study or bar or is no longer practical or functional;
  • You lose the desire to cook or prepare meals in your kitchen;
  • A room suddenly feels too small, too dark or uninspiring;

And, last but not least, you may start to feel that your once beautiful home is now making you feel anxious, frustrated or ill at ease.

The Ten Best Interior Designers and Decorators | Cape Town | South Africa | Part 3

The Anatomy of a top Interior Interior Designer and Decorator

It is often said that successful people have the building blocks of success in their DNA…
Is this really true?

We are also told that artistic talent either runs in our veins or not…
Can we simply accept this assertion?

A commonly held belief is that creative insight and vision cannot be learned or taught…
Is this an absolute fact?

gardner-interior-concepts-commercial-custom-cabinets-units-designs-styles-trends-cape-town-f14

When asking customers about their Interior Designers and Decorators, they are unanimous that the above attributes are at the heart of the magic that the Top Interior Designers and Decorators regularly deliver. They guarantee success, artistic mastery and high-impact creativity.

In addition to their obvious creative talents and artistic flair, the Top Interior Designers and Decorators offer a comprehensive range of professional services supported by high quality products – underpinned by excellent “customer-centric” service.

A hallmark of their service is their ability to build strong relationships with their customers based on sound communication skills, effective planning and efficient operating methods. Their engaging approach – inclusive and collaborative – enables them to get their customers and other role-players on board quickly, while deftly guiding them towards the desired outcomes.

The Top Interior Designers and Decorators understand and appreciate the value of effective communication. They create synergy among all the stakeholders to facilitate efficient management of their projects to achieve their scope, time and budget targets. They furthermore display a transparent approach to requirements, costs and results. These skills enable them to weave the often disparate elements of a project together – seamlessly.

An important trait of a Top Interior Designer and Decorator is the ability to integrate the complex components of a project effortlessly, without drowning their customers in useless jargon. They know how to shield their customers from unnecessary stresses by providing advice and recommending innovative solutions – proactively.

The Top Interior Designers and Decorators have a special Project Management style which ensures that every task is approached in the best way possible; uses the best methods, and is delivered on time – within scope and budget – while adhering to their quality guidelines.

Due to their meticulous approach, fastidiousness and attention to detail, we find that the best Interior Designers and Decorators…

  • Have an effective and informative communication style;

  • Create achievable plans, with realistic timelines and budgets;

The Rating Rules

A rigorous and foolproof selection methodology must be defined and adopted as the first step in the process of identifying the best Interior Designers and Decorators in Cape Town.

Comparing or rating the creative efforts of Interior Designers and Decorators based on subjective perspectives, arbitrary factors and emotional views is an exercise in futility because the results will be spurious.

gardner-interior-concepts-kitchen-designs-styles-trends-cape-town-f6

A methodical approach guarantees a credible result, which trumps the lack authenticity and legitimacy of a willy-nilly approach. Our selection methodology was based on the essential steps listed below. These steps helped us to cut to the chase and avoid the clutter, thereby expediting and facilitating the process of compiling the list of the “Top Ten Interior Designers and Decorators in Cape Town” in an accurate, effective and comprehensive manner.

The Essential Steps:

  1. Define the qualification criteria;
  2. Define the measures and standards;
  3. Quantify the rate or ratio of successes and failures;
  4. Specify a “negative feedback” threshold;
  5. Define clear rules for disqualification and exclusion.

gardner-interior-concepts-entertainment-areas-bbq-designs-styles-trends-cape-town-f8

It was imperative, and also paramount to our success that our project applied and implemented only proven principles, best practices and rational reasoning to ensure that our primary deliverable – the exclusive list of Cape Town’s Top Ten Interior Designers and Decorators – could stand up to scrutiny at any level – based on the rules and processes articulated below:

1. Qualification criteria

1.1. Career Experience

Initially, 10 years seemed fair as a “Career Experience” qualification requirement. Unfortunately it resulted in too many new but outstanding Interior Designers and Decorators missing the cut. Five years was a better choice, as it was more inclusive, but implicitly ruled out beginner’s luck, and “new-kid-on-the-block” syndrome. Five years effectively ensured that qualifiers had weathered the initial two-year start-up storm and demonstrated resilience.

1.2. Design Disciplines

We considered selecting only Residential Interior Designers and Decorators, in order to limit the number of qualifiers. The down-side of this choice was that we excluded too many top-notch Multi-disciplinary and Commercial Interior Designers and Decorators. This seemed both unfair and illogical.

2. Measures and standards

A reasonable threshold for the number of completed projects was required, in order to adequately assess the feedback and reviews from customers. We chose a minimum of thirteen – a baker’s dozen. An unlucky number for some, but an insignificant number to us because luck and superstition were not factors in our equations. A project threshold of 13 precluded the possibility of a 50/50 split, in the event of a mixed bag of project deliveries – six good and half a dozen rotten.

gardner-interior-concepts-kitchen-designs-styles-trends-cape-town-f7

3. Successes and Failures

This step often left us flummoxed, bewildered and perplexed. We found the two questions listed below recurring and particularly exasperating:

a. How do we measure success without well-defined key performance indicators (KPIs)?
b. How do we measure failure if we choose to judge results on a personal and subjective basis?

3.1. Degrees of failure

  • Does overspending qualify as a complete failure?
  • Does late delivery qualify as a not-so-bad failure?
  • Does poor quality workmanship qualify as a very bad failure?
  • Does under-delivery and overspending combined constitute total failure?
  • Does a certain number of snags or mistakes indicate partial failure?
  • Can we classify mistakes as either big or small – conceptually or numerically?

4. Negative feedback

Is it possible to define or measure failure in an artistic, yet scientific domain?

A popular saying goes as follows:

Only doctors can get away with their mistakes, because they get buried.

What about Interior Designers and Decorators? Can they bury or hide their mistakes?

Can they bury a house, a building, an office or a room, if bulldozing it is not an option?

Let’s consider the following situation:

A couple had their home remodeled. The husband was ecstatic with the results because his dream was eventually realized: The perfect entertainment area – a bar and BBQ replete with accessories and gadgets and above all, his easy chair. He was absolutely in “party heaven”.

His wife however, felt very differently and she expressed her disappointment with all the “snags and mistakes” in the bedroom, bathroom and kitchen.

Despite his wife’s negative feedback, the husband insisted that the project was perfect – a resounding success and money well spent. He ignored his wife’s contention that they had wasted far too much money on a bad job.

Well… You be the judge: Success or failure? Degrees of success? Degrees of failure?

Understanding failure

The failure of a project may be due to one single issue or a combination of various complex issues.

In many cases, it is personality clashes, communication lapses, poor planning, financial constraints or excesses, a lack of preparation, or disagreements on fundamental issues that lead to failure.

In many cases, failures are often judged emotionally and therefore very harshly. The financial impact of a failure often determines the intensity of the emotional reaction it triggers.

The above perspectives serve to illustrate the pitfalls and complexities associated with judging or rating the performance of an Interior Designer or Decorator objectively, and interpreting customer feedback correctly.

These complex elements must however be approached rationally and given the appropriate weight, before any reasonable conclusions can be drawn.

gardner-interior-concepts-furniture-designs-styles-trends-cape-town-f12

5. Rules for Disqualification and Exclusion

Interior Designers and Decorators whose portfolios contained no successful projects, or those who recorded more failures than successes were automatically excluded. A history of unethical practices or a record of dishonest dealings also warranted immediate disqualification.

The following questions added much color and excitement to deliberations:

Are fractured or irreparably damaged customer relationships grounds for disqualification?

Should multiple catastrophic failures be grounds for automatic exclusion?

To ensure fairness, an acceptable failure threshold was determined, against which the nature, the cause and the quantifiable impact of each failure was measured – in terms of cost and inconvenience.

Not all project failures can be attributed solely to an Interior Designer or Decorator.

A case in point was damage caused to a customer’s bedroom during a remodeling project. A prolonged storm and heavy rain resulted in leakages and flooding – despite the precautionary, but temporary water-proofing measures implemented by the builder. The storm outlasted the protective measures, resulting in significant water damage.

This situation, together with the preceding issues, elucidates the futility of applying arbitrary criteria to rate, compare or define the Top Interior Designers and Decorators.

Nonetheless, our project successfully surmounted these challenges and forged ahead in the quest to find the Top Ten Interior Designers and Decorators in Cape Town.

Making the cut

Today I am feeling brave. Very brave.

Why?

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.

gardner-interior-concepts-kitchen-designs-styles-trends-cape-town-f1

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.

gardner-interior-concepts-bathroom-designs-styles-trends-cape-town-f5

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.

gardner-interior-concepts-commercial-residential-designs-styles-trends-cape-town-f4

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.

gardner-interior-concepts-bar-designs-styles-trends-cape-town-f3

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.

gardner-interior-concepts-kitchen-designs-styles-trends-cape-town-f2

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!
