Durban is in decorating mode this weekend with Decorex Durban 2013 in town. The show opened yesterday and for those of you looking for some décor inspiration, or just a day out, this is the place to be.

See how one room can be totally transformed with paint and colour at the Plascon “One Room Four Looks” stand showcasing the 2013 Colour Forecast.

Four Durban designers participated in the Volvo Made for You design pods. Each designer was given a Volvo to drive for the weekend; they then designed a space, inspired by their driving experience.

Bianca Shaw from Slinx tested the Volvo V40: the car’s clean lines, serenity and mood-lights inspired her and reminded her of the ocean; her pod reflected this experience and is sophisticated, calm and inspiring. The three other designers with Volvo inspired pods are Che Hooper of Portfolio Design, Jennifer Jones Interiors, and Ground Floor Interiors.

“My Rhino” is a project started by ceramic company Or-gari to increase awareness of the plight of rhinos; the showcase exhibits these beautifully hand-painted Rhino décor pieces. My Rhino donates a portion of the proceeds to The Kariega Foundation with an aim to protecting some of our treasured rhinos.
