About us


South Africa’s favourite interior design reality TV show Win A Home is back!

We are looking for three pairs of aspiring interior designers to participate as contestants in this year’s design challenge.

This season we will be based in Somerset West in Cape Town!

Win A Home spring-boarded the careers of the previous designer winners Donald Nxumalo (2014), Jacoline Sema (2015), Rudolph Jordan (2016) and Brad Muttitt and Abiah Mahlase (2017) who have since made a big impact on South African interior design industry.

The 2018 design challenge applications are now open and we are once again looking for Design contestant Duos!

This season the three Design Duo contestants will be decorating three identical penthouse apartments at the Paardevlei Lifestyle Estate in Somerset West, competing for a grand prize of R100 000. 

This is the opportunity of a lifetime for passionate and qualified designers looking to make their mark in interior design and win incredible prizes. Competing Design Duos will also be given the opportunity to be mentored by three of South Africa’s leading home decor magazines. Each of the three participating design pairs will be assigned a magazine title, who will guide them through the design process and will each do a feature spread on their mentee’s completed apartment.
