Decor, Design and Colourful Creatives at Durban Decorex 2017

It’s been an inspiring two days at Decorex Durban and still two days to go. I love being surprised by new designs and creatives and that is what I found at this show. With too many beautiful stands to show in this blog, here are just some that inspired me.

Interiors

Starting with my favourite stand on the show, this trendy living room by Change Design Studio. Angela Rousseau created a wonderful relaxing, minimalist look but not lacking in creativity. I love the interesting colour blocking on the wall using colours from the Plascon 2017 Colour Forecast. The Green is Ridge, The light Grey block is Light Grey Aluminium and the Black is Tribecca Corner

Fusing old with new was the goal with the stand below by Durban based Wisty Raleigh Interiors

The best Decor stand went to Functions for Africa – the table was so beautifully styled and looked ready for guests to arrive any minute.

Kitchens
Some really beautiful kitchens on the show, the colours used in most were light neutrals with different textures and light woods to spark interest. Kitchens in the Franke Kitchen Design Project were aiming for simplicity and calmness which they definitely achieved.

In the kitchen below I loved the different textures in shades of neutral, from the gloss champagne cabinets and marble counter top to the wood floor and inlay pieces.

Black is Back
Just when I thought grey was moving on, looks like black is back. Still not convinced it’s a shade I would recommend you live with but it does look very stylish and elegant and is very evident at the show, from bedrooms to kitchens. The best stand award went to a very stylish stand in black – Rudi’s choice – Marble and Onyx Collection.

Uzwelo Bags are made from off-cuts of fabric used in the manufacture of portable branding products, creating something special out of waste. Making them even more appealing is that they are made by a community supported project. www.uzwelo.co.za

This is Joe Govo, a Zimbabwean self-taught artist. In 2006 he established Joe Govo Ceramics, a proudly South African business that embraces his passion.His designs are unique designs that cater for art collectors and individuals who wish to own their very own bespoke pieces (like me). I was blown away by his beautiful teapots like this one. http://www.joegovo.com
