Passionate about creating unique spaces

Interiors Etc started in 2001 when owner, Michelle Murray, started to paint and technique friends' furniture for a small fee. Creative Decor (as the business was then known) grew quickly, with many of her clients wanting more than just painting. They wanted decor advice, and initial consultations became turnkey project management of the entire decor and renovation process.

By 2014, the business incorporated so many more aspects than just pure decorating. It had grown to include decor, design, project management, furniture upcycling, accessory and furniture retail products, styling for photo shoots, home staging and writing of decor-related articles. To more accurately represent all that the business encompassed, Michelle decided to change the name of her business to Interiors Etc

At every step of the journey, Michelle has been committed to keeping ahead of the game by constantly seeking out new knowledge, researching emerging trends, and discovering novel products through relevant courses, books, lectures, talks and trade shows.

The client’s needs, lifestyle and character are foremost in the design process as is their particular budget.
— Michelle Murray

In addition to ongoing renovation projects and decor-related work, plans for Interiors Etc's near future involve setting up a retail space in Cape Town, the beginnings of which can be found here on our site. Michelle is also very excited to get stuck into decor writing on her brand new blog.

For general support and sanity, Michelle’s husband Ross has joined the ranks to help with admin, IT and transport of retail products and project materials
