Anne Roselt is an Interior Designer and colour specialist based in Durban South Africa. Her love for colour has been inspired by her travels; from the tropical beauty of KwaZulu Natal to the deserts of Jordan.
Drawing inspiration from nature, architecture and art, Anne creates beautiful spaces, that reflect the personality of the client, the architecture of the home and the surrounding environment.
Anne studied a B Comm. degree at the University of Natal and joined the marketing department of South Africa’s biggest paint company Plascon Paints. Here she embraced the “new” paint effects trend and launched a range of paint effect products. She then left to join Angel Interiors London as a decorative painter, working on prestigious projects including King Hussein’s place in Jordon, an upmarket home in Kensington Palace Gardens and a country home in Nova Scotia.
During this time Anne discovered the therapeutic qualities of colour as well as a talent for colour matching. On returning to South Africa she rejoined Plascon and launched the first Colour Forecast in 1999.
Wanting to learn more about the therapeutic qualities of colour, she studied colour therapy with the world renowned colour therapy expert and author, Theo Gimbel. She then went on to get a diploma in colour therapeutics for interiors from the Holistic Design Institute.
Anne was invited to sit on a panel of colour trend forecasters in London – The International Colour Authority, followed by The Mix for 16 a total of years. In South Africa she launched the first decor magazine dedicated to colour which went on to win international awards.
Anne spent her career promoting interiors and interior designers, she initiated Plascon’s sponsorship of Decorex and the IID – South African Institute of Interior Designers.
She has designed numerous bespoke colour palettes and colour systems for paint companies and has been invited to talk about colour across the globe. She was a judge on the television show “Win a Home” in South Africa.
After leaving the paint industry Anne followed her passion for interiors and obtained her KLC Online Certificate in Interior Design from the KLC Design School in London.
Her aim is to create elegant, comfortable spaces where her clients can feel at home, surrounded by the colours they love. She takes sustainability in design very seriously and every effort is made to use materials that are responsibly sourced and not harmful to the environment.
