Remodelling the West Coast

In a misty morning we found sunshine in our June front cover shoot. As the mist rolled in over the lagoon I was inspired and overwhelmed by the power and grace of our front cover models.

Meet team of Deco Collections, Engela and Anna. They bring a world of ideas into the West Coast with experience established both locally and internationally. Experts at decor, furniture design, remodelling of rooms as well as complete project management of houses. The dynamic duo has even designed an apartment and villas in the Seychelles and is now calling Langebaan their home.

They bring a lifestyle living approach to their clients and their decorating classes and style talk events have grown immensely popular. Engela speaks with passion about seeing the happiness on clients’ faces when they finish a project. Anna states that the West Coast is ever changing and evolving and that they had to rethink how to reach their market. “People won’t find you here in malls and visitors tend to want to use brands they know; with us you will find a one-stop shop of remodelling furniture, upholstery and design with the support of well-known brands like Perrins and our fabric partners, Hertex, Home Fabrics, St Leger, Mavromac and Warwick that will fulfil any decorating needs a local client might have.”

Painting the West Coast in a new flashy colour is The Dynamic Mrs Paint, who is a new resident to our lovely shores but not to the industry of painting and remodelling.

Mrs Paint and Mr Bathroom have become household names in Cape Town and Pretoria for any construction or remodelling needs.

Lynette, the owner of this family run business, brings not only experience but a world of industry specific knowledge to Langebaan and surrounds.

What makes a good contractor in the construction industry? The answer is easy according to Lynette, using quality products, being honest and reliable and understanding that each time you are working on a client’s house you must respect it as your own. “We believe that each job is as important as the next, no matter the size.”

This writer is in awe of the strength and nobility of these women that have made a mark in a sometimes male driven world. We applaud them and would like to invite any of our readers to support them at ….. #sloepwes #houseandhome #womanempowerment #construction #westcoast
