OTHER THINGS YOU MIGHT WANT TO KNOW
Here at Design Monarchy our experience, skills and knowledge base allows us to speak with authority – we believe “beautiful design requires designers in charge”. While some monarchies are considered autocratic, our design philosophy is one of inclusion. Our clients form part of our royal family. We work with them to design environments that reflect their individuality and lifestyle. As interior design delves deeper than simply decor, we believe every interior solution should reflect different cultures, styles and personalities taking note of current decor trends without being a slave to them. Over a period of 25 years we have worked with upmarket residential & hospitality interiors. In recent years, we were involved in 4 & 5 star hotel interior and refurbishment projects in Ireland, some of which were award-winning venues. While hospitality interiors remain our passion, our portfolio speaks of a flexible capability. We deliver on interior projects across variety of genres and scales, from international boutique hotels to luxury seaside villas.
All ABOUT US
Rose McClement stepped onto the Interiors stage way back in 1980 working for one of Cape Town’s prestigious retail decor companies, Milton’s Interiors. She tells that she did not set out with a particular desire to do this work. Nevertheless, she was born with a love for beauty & storytelling. Working within the interiors profession has helped her to weave these two powerful passions – good interiors & writing – into one tapestry. Rose maintains that every interior tells a story – about its inhabitants, its place in their purpose & their future. She is determined to use each talent she has been given, each honed skill, each bit of her extensive experience & knowledge to facilitate good interior story telling. Particularly directed to her other passion – hospitality interiors.
Marica wanted to be an interior designer for as long as she can remember. As a kid she would mentally redecorate the homes of friends and family whilst on boring house visits. Marica graduated with a National Diploma in Interior Design from CPUT in 2008. Shortly thereafter, she joined Rose and they’ve been working their design magic ever since. Marica enjoys all the facets of design including fiddling in Photoshop, drawing 3D models in SketchUp, putting together concept presentations and popping bubble wrap. She also has a severe Pinterest addiction and likes spending her free time finding illustrations of bears, clever DIY ideas, beautiful watercolours and pretty things to blog about.
