All you want is for your home to reflect who you are, beautifully. But you also want to be on trend. How do all the industry professionals know what’s big, how to do it, and where to get it? 

Interior design firms have whole departments dedicated to sourcing materials. It’s not easy to stay on top of an industry that’s constantly changing. The best way to stay up to date is to use social media to see what the professionals are doing, attend the expos, and read the blogs on the latest palette predictions and trends. There’s another great way to stay in the loop. Read on to learn more. 


Do you remember that childhood feeling? The tingling in your toes, the build-up in your chest... You could almost scream from excitement as you countdown to your birthday.

Not only do you get presents, but you also get to mark the milestone of another year.

As kids, we all felt excited about getting older. It means we’re more advanced, experienced, we’ve progressed.

That’s exactly where we’re at.. 


Can you believe it? We are another month closer to the big birthday, which brings us another month of celebrations. Redesign turns 7 this year, woohoo! We’re bringing you a new artist of the month, Warwick Locke, aaaand… we’re giving away a free gift that’s related to architectural photography to one of our followers, because you’re the best. 


We’re into the third leg of our 7-part series! This means we are also one month closer to celebrating our birthday - eeek! Time is going so quickly. Redesign Interiors has come such a wonderfully long way from our roots to where we are now as born and bred Durban artists. We want to celebrate with everyone who has been part of the journey we’ve enjoyed so far and we look forward to continuing onwards and upwards with all of you. 

Local, lekker, Durban artist Bron Stofberg 

This month, we would like to talk about the inspiring work of Bron Stofberg. Redesign Interiors is always thrilled to bring new artists into the light, but Bron needs almost no introduction. Her work supports the peace and calm that is so tangible in her personality, while it loudly reverberates elements of quirky and eccentricity, with a slight offset appeal. As you know, Redesign interiors loves the unusual, the Mavericks, those bringing something new to the table. We’ve used some of Bron’s work to add that extra unique touch to some of the more classic styles we’ve created in our projects. Like we always say, classic is wonderful, but there has to be something a little crazy in there to make it truly yours.

Welcome to part 2 of our 7-month birthday celebration! 


As you all know, Redesign Interiors turns 7 this year which means we’re celebrating for 7 months! To thank everyone for sharing this journey with us, we’re inviting you to share in the festivities. We’re shining the spotlight on an artist of our choice who has inspired us, worked with us, or is making a difference in the creative world, every month, because there is nothing like celebrating creativity. We’re lucky enough to be able to give away a prize, donated by the artist of the month, every single month for 7 months! Woohoo! 

We’re very happy to present to you an artist who is local and still fairly undiscovered. Enjoy the work of Rowena Gilpin while we bring you all the interesting info on her! 

Rowena is a local artist, born and raised in Durban, South Africa. Painting and sculpting have been an important part of her life since she can remember, with a fondness for colour and texture forming around her creativity.



Welcome to the first edition of our 7-part series. To celebrate our 7th Birthday in July 2018, we relish all things local. Each month we will shine the spotlight on a local talent that has added to, or inspired the local industry in some way. This month, we are rolling up our sleeves and donning something artistic but also, slightly, rebellious. Redesign Interiors loves the Mavericks, the eccentrics, the gems that are making magic happen! This month we chat with Giffy, a local street artist. 


The Zeitz Museum in Cape Town is seriously shaking things up! Talk about abandoning the status quo! They’ve created a truly authentic vibe for every art guru to relish in. The old Grain Silo Complex at the V&A Waterfront has been reimagined as a fantastic art museum.

All of the roughness its age and history has given it is perfectly preserved and incorporated into the design. This not-for-profit museum also exhibits, preserves and collects contemporary, twenty-first-century art pieces.

Yay for a new team mate! Zama is new to the Redesign family and we are so stoked to have her on board. Zama is a young and vibrant artist who loves all things creative. This is what Zama has to say about herself: “From a very young age, I was exposed to and involved in various creative projects. I’m a qualified Fine Artist - I majored in painting and sculpture and have a love for structure and form. I have an interest in product design - the sculptural element of contemporary furniture design inspires me. I have a deep love for Art History and am influenced by artists and architects like Salvador Dali, Henry Moore, Mies Van Der Rohe and Le Corbusier. I have a deep passion for business.” Welcome to the team Zama, we can’t wait to get creating with you!

There ain’t nothing like a birthday. They are fun and full of festivities. Birthdays are also a good time to reflect on the previous year and what was good or bad about it. With Paige celebrating her birthday this month, she took some time to think back on 2016 and what an awesome year it was. Paige says she feels totally blessed by her team and the ‘job’ she does daily.

“The Redesign Team have out performed themselves and designed some amazing interiors and we have had a lot of fun too. We achieved some great goals and I am super excited for the next year! Now where is my cake?”

We love February. Not only because of the fantastic weather that we are blessed with here in Durbs, but also because we get to add a little spice to our own spaces and fill them with hearts and all things lovely. February is also Meghan’s birthday month, and what’s not to love about Meghan?

Happy Birthday Meghan! We love having you as part of the Redesign Interiors team, and we are so proud of everything that you have achieved in the last year. You have been an asset to this business and we can’t wait to see all the crazy, cool designs you are going to whip out this year.

 Have the most rockin’ day and we hope you are spoiled beyond reason - you deserve it!




How to make your interior love YOU!

It’s not just us humans that need some lovin’ this month. Everyone and everything deserves love, even your interior. There’s no better way to make your interior love you than by giving it a makeover. Love your interior again by painting a feature wall with a new lick of paint; buy those cushions you have been eyeing out for ages; or purchase that artwork that’s been on your wishlist for who knows how long.


We are so excited to start off 2017! 2016 was such a thrill and we look forward to continuing the ride. We have some great work lined up this year and we can’t wait to get stuck in!

To start the year off, we will be working on two new impressive home builds in Umhlanga; a lovely retail space in the Ballito Junction and some beautiful home renovations! How exciting to start the year with so many fabulous projects! 2017 will also see the installation of our hotel design - woohoo - we cannot wait to see the outcome!
