Based in Durban, South Africa, Michele Throssell Interiors prides itself on revealing ‘the soul of the home’ through their turn-key design solutions that start with extensive interviewing of their clients right through to champagne-in-the-fridge on delivery of each project. Michele and her team have become renowned for their holistic approach to design, one that involves creating homes that express as well as contain the stories, tastes and lifestyles of the families who live in them.

Her natural talent for feng-shui, her eye for implementing texture combined with her A-type personality enable her to thread her unique brand of elegance, depth and artistry through every one of her projects whether it’s an apartment in Clifton, a stately home in Saxonwold, a country house in England, a beach house in Ballito or a game farm in Botswana. Successfully striking that balance of her signature style with the distinct story of each home is the reason why Michele Throssell Interiors has become one of South Africa’s most sought-after creative interior brands.

Whilst she admires Neo-Classical and Bauhaus aesthetics over hyper-modernist architecture, she has a deep love and appreciation of South African design and art. It’s a value that is important to her – to support local creative talent and industry – and is something she draws upon to construct the narratives that are so important to each home that she touches.

By constantly remaining curious, her enthusiasm and energy for each project is infectious whilst the dedication to her clients and their needs is unwavering no matter the circumstances.
