MEET THE TEAM
Who are we and what do we do?
We are an Interior Design studio based in Hillcrest, Durban. We pride ourselves in creating and designing amazing Interior spaces, be it Residential, Corporate, Hospitality, Retail and the likes. We don’t just do curtains and cushions as some people may think… We involve ourselves just like an Architect would, from drafting your plans to designing custom cabinetry and overseeing the entire build from start to finish.
Do you have formal training behind you?
Yes, Nicky Goldstone, The Director and lead designer at Designs by Day studied a BTech In Interior Design at DUT and graduated Cum laude.
Kaylin Cameron, our Junior Designer studied a BDes in Interior Design at Inscape Design Collage and also graduated Cum Laude.
We at Designs by Day only employ professionals that are well trained and equipped with the best in order to give our clients the best service we possibly can.
What is your best advice when designing?
Always consider ceilings and lighting. Everyone seems to forget about this when designing. So often clients and designers get so caught up with the pretties and the amazing pieces going in on ground level that they forget the ‘shell’ of the home as a whole. We at Designs by Day utilize the ENTIRE space when designing. Since you are paying for all these square meters in your home, you need to appreciate them in terms of a well designed space. Amazing bulkheads and lighting details are a MUST in any interior.
What colour do you love to hate in an Interior?
Orange. We have never been a fan of orange as it dates too quickly. We believe in creating spaces that will last you 5-10 years on trend and not date when the new season arrives.
Favourite design piece at present?
Vibia Wireflow lights – We just love how they can transform a space so simply. The versatility of the product is amazing. It creates a WOW effect that is understated yet sophisticated.
