Sian Cullingworth, the Portfolio Director for Design, Lifestyle and Retail Exhibitions, described this inspiring event as follows:

“There is something incredibly energising about being in one venue with so many talented South Africans showcasing their product and abilities. At the heart of it, Decorex is about bringing these industry players and the public, all of whom are passionate about décor and design, onto a level platform. Using this, they are given the opportunity to engage in a meaningful way about their role and desires in this inspired arena. I really believe this was achieved at Decorex Cape Town and am just so excited to discover what depths of creativity emerge from the show.”

Decorex Cape Town 2017 Kitchen Design Project – Gardner Interior Concepts Kitchen Design

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.

Clinton Soutter of Franke explained: “We were looking for someone who designs smart, finding solutions to optimize space and storage while using colors and materials that go simply and harmoniously together.”

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?

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…”

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 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?
