If there was anything the lockdown has taught us was to appreciate the spaces we live in, and create memories with our loved ones. Working from home had proven to be an adjustment for many, thus creating a desire for a space that functionality and home pride.

Orange Peel Interior design a company passionate about redefining interior design. The Company has relentlessly been transforming spaces over the past 4 years. The heart of the business is to make interior design accessible to all, regardless of the Living Standards Measure (LSM). They transform spaces, breath life and beauty into homes and offices giving them a character that compliments the owner.

Established by Zita Jesus, the OPID team comprises of multi skilled creative individuals who drive the vision of the brand. The team takes pride in understanding the client’s wish list “the brief” conceptualises a look and feel (mood board) that balances the style, functionality and atmosphere of the space. Ultimately the design decisions and elements are guided by the client’s budget

Orange Peel Interior Designs has been working with Pupkewitz Megabuild, Greyco Architects, Netreg Electrical, and other partners like EdHomeDeco as well as Tate Sammy the carpenter.

“Quite frankly we use a lot of people from the township – like our curtain makers, upholsters, and, custom furniture makers are all people from deep within the 'informal settlement' and they have mad skill,” Zita says. The company strongly believes in giving business to local talent and they help us create unique items for our clients

Jesus says they offer renovations, styling, shopping, for residential and corporate Interiors. “We also do declutter and organising of spaces and generally all other design-related services,” she says.

Orange Peel Interior Designs have been working with Greyco Architects, Netreg Electrical, Oscars Joinery and other partners like EdHomeDeco as well as Tate Sammy the carpenter.

“Quite frankly we use a lot of people from the township – like our curtain makers, arts crafters, upholsters, pillow makers, custom furniture makers are all people from deep within the 'Tura' and they have mad skill,” she says. The company supports them through the business we give them and they help us create unique pieces for our clients and also help us work within the client’s budget.

Zita draws her inspiration from Nature to create beautiful interiors for her clients. She is a cultured Oshiwambo girl from Oshivello. She is mostly self-taught, and has completed a few online causes in interior design– in most cases, the ideas come naturally to her at the oddest times.. These courses help me understand the history of interior design and the science behind colours, textures, patterns etc,” she says.

The guru of interior design loves clean, crisp lines, a simple neutral and airy colour palette and the use of natural materials. “So, I would say my style is a balance between modern, contemporary and minimalist design styles,” she says. Ultimately Zita’s designs are defined by a sense of functionality and ultra-clean lines. “This gives a sense of simplicity in every element, including furniture. A design that is sleek, zero clutter with a dose of a personal touch,” she says.

Darren Palmer is her favourite designer as she resonates with his design style. “It’s not pretentious and we both draw our inspiration from nature,” she says.
