It was for good reason that Cape Town was selected as World Design Capital 2014. While that accolade was all about acknowledging the City's approach to recognising urban design as a tool for social, cultural and economic development, it has also been very noticeable over the last 10 to 15 years in Cape Town, how the private sector, and even just every day locals, have increasingly become aware of and embraced design in a much more interesting and exciting way than before, including in the way they go about designing and furnishing their properties.

Design, and a greater awareness of its role in our lives is something we increasingly see reflected across the entire spectrum of creative industries in South Africa - from visual art and crafts to jewellery, fashion, advertising, new media and publishing - all of which is celebrated annually at the excellent and ever growing Design Indaba Expo held at the Cape Town Convention Centre each March (the biggest curated design event in the Southern Hemisphere).

And in very much the same way, we at Cape Portfolios have over the last decade been excited to observe a more creative and imaginative approach to designing and furnishing new properties in many of the areas we work with around Cape Town, as better quality, international standard materials become available to the local architects and construction companies, and local interior decorators and designers also increasingly introduce new design elements and influences.

At Cape Portfolios, we have always believed that the sleek, modern minimalist style of property design and furnishing works really well in a City with an almost mediterranean style climate and laid back charm, so we are delighted to see this modern design style increasingly coming in to popular areas we work with. Exciting, newly built properties have sprung up constantly over this period and been added to our rental portfolio, especially along the Atlantic coastline through the hugely popular suburbs of Clifton, Camps Bay and Llandudno, which not many decades after being sleepy weekend beach retreats now boast some of the most highly priced real estate in South Africa, owned by millionaire business people and Hollywood celebrities amongst others!

And this is not, of course, to suggest that all "designer" property has to be sleek, modern and super luxurious, in the particular style we increasingly see and rent out in upmarket neighbourhoods like Camps Bay and Clifton. It is also very exciting to see and work with more simply renovated beach bungalows and cottages in Cape Town and along the Garden Route, or centuries old farm estates that have been modernised into a luxurious home or boutique hotel whilst still retaining their classic Cape Dutch architectural design appeal.
