Five Minutes With Danilo Acquisto: 

Why do you think a show like ‘Win A Home’ is so entertaining to watch?

I think it’s the sheer awe of the design inspiration and the personalities of the design duos. Some watch solely to inspire their own design ideas and some for the drama of the duos and the journey they go through.

Throughout the competition, the three competing duos, comprising of Rekopile Belebesi and Koketso Marole (team R&K), Kehumile Mate and Nicholas Smit (team Contrast Control) and Melissa Oosthuizen and Sinead Turner (team Perma Peeps), have used their skills and creativity to decorate their respective apartment’s various rooms in order to wow judges Bryan Courtney of Private Property, Slade Brookes of Balwin Properties, Buhle Mathole of Kabu Design Architects, and various guest judge interior design luminaries.

The design duos first task was to tackle the apartment’s guest bedroom and spare room. The one prerequisite was that the spare room could not be a bedroom. For their spare room, team R&K decided to create a ‘Glam Room’ with a wardrobe and dressing table where they commissioned Hout Bay-based fine artists Donna Solovei to do a painting of red-bottom high heels and framed it in Caesarstone. For their guest bedroom, team Contrast Control collaborated with Oliver Sherwell of Sherwell Interiors to create a wrap-around headboard in olive green fabric, and designed a study space for their other room. Perma Peeps created a Murphy Bed for the spare room and a macramé-woven headboard for their guest bedroom. A mistake made by creating a ceiling feature that stopped the cupboards from opening caused Contrast Control to become joint winners with R&K for this first challenge. This task was mentored and guest judged by Rudolph Jordaan (design winner of Win a Home season 3).
