“With over 25 years of award-winning status and integrity in the interior design world, the OLALA INTERIORS team celebrates their journey with responsive and mindful design. Their attention to detail and luxury design expertise allows them to create the perfect habitat for discerning clients.

OLALA INTERIORS is a multidisciplinary decor and design studio with its own bespoke manufacturing division. The company’s design philosophy is curating approachable, elegant spaces with easy and luxuriously contented living areas. Specializing in high end residential, equestrian and golf estate homes, private lodges and apartments from the Indian and Atlantic Ocean seaboards across the vast Southern Africa interior, OLALA INTERIORS offers a turn-key solution to discerning clients looking for the essence of luxury living.

We are delighted to announce that OLALA INTERIORS recently received two, much coveted 5*Star Best in South Africa awards of the 2020/21 International Property Awards in London UK. To be presented with one of the Africa & Arabia Property Awards, as part of the International Property Awards, is highly prestigious and widely recognised across the globe. A total of 25 countries from across both regions were represented this year and OLALA INTERIORS was ultimately presented with the highest scoring 5 STAR AWARD and recognised as the BEST in both the ‘INTERIOR DESIGN - PRIVATE RESIDENCE’ and the ‘KITCHEN DESIGN’ categories.

“This is an amazing result for the OLALA INTERIORS team. We couldn’t be more proud of the work we have done to achieve these awards. It is an honour to receive recognition of our focus on delivering excellent interior design and services to our clients, and of our commitment to adding value in every assignment we undertake ,” said OLALA INTERIORS partners Schanè Anderson, CEO & Creative Director and Debbie Steinhobel, Managing Director.

The project submitted for both categories was a home situated in the beautiful Zimbali Coastal Estate in KwaZulu Natal. OLALA INTERIORS enthusiastically delivered a luxurious escape with this multi-level home designed as a family sanctuary. The design team embarked on a journey to capture the innate generosity of a socially engaging family, which required much intentional design and consideration. Making use of plenty of tactile textures and incredibly high-end fabrics, luscious velvet’s and the client’s love of lighting, the team ensured that this home embodies lux coastal living. All built-in-cupboards, vanities, kitchen cabinetry, plasma units, dining table, study bookcases and desks were custom designed and built by OLALA INTERIORS for this home enabling the design team to use each space to its very best advantage.

Over the years, time and energy has been invested into building a reputable and successful business reaching across borders and oceans, incorporating the latest local and international style and design trends. In this dynamic and continuously evolving industry, OLALA INTERIORS knows the importance of authenticity and the company treats every project uniquely to develop its own personality. Watch this space, this has only been the first 25 years!
