So, at the end of this month, i’ll be hitting Decorex with a vengeance! I’m co-judging the stands this year with the lovely Kim Gray and my friend and fellow mag hag Mandy Allen and am excited to see what innovations, ideas and inspiration will be on offer. If you’re anyway interested in home decor, renovations, makeovers and clever products and ideas for making the most of your space, then Decorex is where you need to be. When we were renovating our home, the amount of information i got at Decorex was amazing – from colour ideas to surfaces, decorative details and nifty tools to do the job, there was so much to see and it helped so much having everything under one roof.
Aside from the practical magic that happens at Decorex, there is a strong focus on design and the theme this year is ‘Real’ – keeping things real and a focus on real innovation and inspiration. Acclaimed designer Porky Hefer will be sharing what makes him tick while Plascon, the main show sponsor, will be showcasing their 2012 colour forecast which he works on with them.
I love the sound of the Contemporary Country Fabric Trend Installation a collaboration where curators Laurence Brick, Timna Russell, trends forecaster and product developer in the textiles and home décor industry, and Cathy O’Clery, expert on interior and contemporary design, put the real ‘platteland’ look in urban context with knitted upholstery, raw linen and natural wood.
And there are also some charitable initiatives including a Decorex reading corner where visitors can bring books to be donated to a literacy project.
Sounds like a cracker of a show! Decorex will be held from 26-29 April and tickets are R65 for adults
