WHICH LOCAL / INTERNATIONAL INTERIOR DESIGNERS DO YOU ASPIRE TO?
For me, ARRCC epitomises exceptional interior design. Based in Cape Town, this outstanding design studio has developed some of the most magnificent projects I have seen, both locally and internationally. It is obvious that they work in collaboration with architects to achieve a perfectly complemented architectural and interior space. They have a multi-dimensional focus within their dramatically voluminous spaces with which they take full advantage of to break the boundaries of normality. I love their use of bold form and natural finishes, which boasted all throughout their spaces with an excessive display of fine attention to detail. Their interiors come across as a wholesome, artistic sculpture which could presumably appear as a reflection of the inhabitant’s personalities and lifestyles. A mere glimpse at any of their inspiring projects captures a sense of contemporary elegance and luxury.

WHAT IS YOUR PET PEEVE DESIGN FLAW?
Matchy-matchy furniture. When the sofa, occasional chairs, TV unit and side tables all have the same fabric, style and varnished wood finish. This kind of gives away that your entire living room was probably purchased all at once from a supermarket furniture department, taking away any sense of personalisation to the space. Make a space interesting by incorporating different tones, patterns, textures and finishes (which still work well together, of course) which are a reflection of your personality and lifestyle.
IF YOU COULD TRAVEL ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD, WHERE WOULD IT BE?
Road tripping around New Zealand is definitely near the top of my bucket list. It has the perfect combination of beautiful natural landscapes, exciting cityscapes, and interesting cultural history which I can not wait to one day explore.
