They’ve tackled the guest bedroom & spare room & last night saw the start of the design journey for our Design Duos work on their bathrooms at the Balwin Properties stunning Paardevlei Litestyle Estate.


Last night we saw Team R&K, Team Perma Peeps and Team Contrast Control take on their most challenging room yet.


The Duos met their next mentor, Karen Marsden a well-known interior designer who has had her works featured on South Africa’s favourite lifestyle magazine show – Top Billing, been featured in VISI magazine and News 24.

Karen Marsden is the mentor to each Design Duo, ensuring that they stay within the confines of their budgets and complete the room on time, which will be revealed in episode 5.


The three Design Duos made their way to various stores in order to stock on up various items, accessories and more for the transformation of their bathrooms.


Team Contrast Control took a trip to Caesarstone in order to peruse their selection of quartz countertops & visited Weylandts to select luxury accessories for their bathroom.


The Design Duos also met their next local artist collaborators.

Team Contrast Control met with Cara Saven of Cara Saven Wall, a designer who’s dedicated to custom designed wallpapers, canvases and frame prints, as our only male Duo were interested in a custom design wallpaper print for their bathroom.


Team R&K teamed up with Emma de Crespigny also known as The New Modernist. Emma specialises in vintage decor and high-quality reproductions which is right up Rekopile’s & Koketso’s design alleys as they opted to collaborate with the artist on an upcycled wardrobe cupboard!

Lastly, Team Perma Peeps opedt for a collaboration that truly speaks to their love of nature & permaculture as they met up with Sue Kingma, owner of Nuno Indoor Plants to assist with the creation of some truly unique moss ball plants for their bathroom.


Will everything go according to schedule? Nothing is ever smooth sailing in construction and the Design Duos learn this the hard way in some cases.
