Decorex Durban 2019

Renowned for its incredible representation of local designers, Decorex Durban 2019 will continue this tradition with the inclusion of Jennifer Jones Interiors as this year’s Decorex Designer Spotlight. Her unique vision will be revealed in this exquisite installation that forms part of the extensive Decorex Durban feature programme.

“We are so delighted to welcome Jennifer Jones to the 2019 Decorex programme and are intrigued to see her take on the ‘Designing for Africa – feels like home’ theme,” said Sian Cullingworth, Portfolio Director at Reed Exhibitions. “It was at Decorex Durban in 2001 that Jennifer first launched her interior design business and she astounds us, every time she returns, with her beautiful creations.”

Commenting on her upcoming Decorex Durban showcase, Jennifer said she was excited to be involved in this exciting exhibition: “Decorex always provides an endless array of creative inspiration for the design year ahead and I’m so looking forward to sharing my favourite 2019 décor trends.”

Design tips from Jennifer Jones

“Many people live in homes with older architecture and furniture that can easily be adapted to make a new space,” she explained. “These days, people are decorating more economically, taking it room by room. There’s a much more eclectic feel with people using existing furniture and reviving it. This is important because anything you’ve invested in reflects a part of your personality.”

Commenting on a few trends she’s enjoying, Jennifer said: “There’s a much braver use of colour. People are moving away from the neutrals, or they’re adding a vibrant pop of colour. A lounge suite in a neutral shade is always a good idea, with feature fabrics and colours used on chairs and cushions to create an updated look.”

Her overall design advice is: “Start with what you have, and plan from there!”
