"Design should be fluid, constantly evolving

It is when we are open to inspiration that we allow

The best ideas to Flourish"

Judy is known for her accent on opulence, unashamedly embracing the hallmarks of luxury to blend craftsmanship with innovation, specialising in medium to large projects. .

This has given rise to her trademark aesthetic; a blend of lavish textures and colours that creates a discernible and irresistible appeal, always in tune with the context and surroundings of her projects.

Her goal is to create a space where clients not only enjoy spending time, but one which helps them live their very best life by enveloping them with comfort and design that brings unfettered joy.

With this in mind, the Judy de Villiers experience goes well beyond providing flawless service and magnificent interiors to offer a complete turnkey design solution, from design and drawing to construction, renovation, carpentry, custom-designed furniture, architecture and soft furnishings. Judy will help you source unique items that speak to your signature lifestyle brand.

The Team

At JDV, we believe that nothing is impossible. In fact, we love the challenge of turning our clients’ design dreams into a reality, whether they’re yearning for a stand-out piece they spotted online or an item they’ve designed themselves.

Over the years, JDV has developed relationships with an extensive network of highly skilled artisans, both local and international. Our process is simple. Armed with sketches of the piece we want to produce, we single out the members of our network whose skills are best suited to the job at hand. We may collaborate with glassblowers, carpenters, leather workers, woodworkers, or artisans skilled in any other discipline to work on a particular piece. Sometimes, we’ll call on the abilities of an entire team, with each member working on a separate component.

If we’re not able to make what you need locally, we’ll source from our large number of international contacts.

Anything is possible when you have the right team.

“JDV interior designers are honestly one of the top industry professionals in the country. All of our wildest dreams were exceeded in a luxury lifestyle with the brief being captured perfectly. They combined my ideas and vision with their expertise and experience, to come up with a beautifully designed home. The space was considered not only what it was going to look like, but also how it was going to be used. Throughout the entire design and construction process Judy’s attention to detail was second to none. Thank you Judy and team for your dedication and overall excellent services rendered. Our house is truly turned in to a luxury haven.”

MR THABISO TENYANE

OWNER OF TENYANE RESIDENCE | SERENGETI ESTATE | JOHANNESBURG

“Judy de Villiers’ work is of the highest quality and professionalism taking the client’s needs and vision into account. At the same time providing practical and creative advice, without imposing her ideas! She definitely captured the ‘wow’ factor to the interior design in our lodge that the simple act of entering our luxury private game lodge suite for the first time I was literally rendered speechless. The decor create a warm and captivating contrast for the contemporary Afro design.”

MR NICK VAN DER MERWE

OWNER OF MOOI DINK PRIVATE LODGE | HOEDSPRUIT

“Every step in the project from design to final walkthrough was stress-free and enjoyable thanks to the competence of Judy and her team. Together with her excellent organizational and time management skills, the whole project and turnaround time was a breeze. Their impeccable taste and knowledge of all things design was reassuring and the style of design fit the estate perfectly. When complications arose, Judy dealt with them promptly and professionally. The end result is beautiful and functional space that we receive compliments on almost daily. Each part of our design was creative and solution focused.”

“Working with JDV was a great experience! Throughout the entire design and construction process Judy’s attention to detail was second to none.

“JDV Interiors! Where can I start! You have made what once seemed impossible and out of reach a reality in which I live now. This project was huge, but you helped us through it. We really appreciate the level of professionalism you have shown. Your design skills are exceptional. You’ve demonstrated that good design can also be functional and family friendly. I hated the house when we purchased it but had a vision to turn into something unique and personal, and you not only understood our needs but our personalities as individuals as well as a family and clearly translated through the design. Now I have a home I love and am proud of, I can share my space with family and friends and the kids love it too. Our home is gorgeous but very livable. You’ve also been a great pleasure to work with I’m forever grateful.

“From the first steps of general design layout of a room to picking paint and fabrics and furniture was easy and exciting. Judy was able to focus in quickly on my personal taste and offer fabulous choices but not overwhelming with too many choices. The installation and follow up with small glitches offered outstanding personal service. I highly recommend JDV.”

The ultimate feeling of luxury is being surrounded by a space that tells a story - a space with a sense of balance and a feeling of “I want to stay here forever.” Our concept at this year’s Decorex started out with wanting to give clients a true feeling of what a JDV Interior Designers’ space would feel like. The space had to fold and mold around them. It had to evoke a soft, subtle feeling. Luxury is often associated with rich colours. But we approached it differently for this display - we created a contrasting background by applying royal blue and adding a touch of textured wallpaper, also framing it like a picture, just to add the necessary accent element. This was followed by adding ivory with layers of texture on top of texture. Custom-designed ceramics were featured across the stand, suited to the look and feel of the space created. Matte porcelain with a mix of gloss and gold resulted in just the right amount of detail. We integrated technology in a precise way, showing off how it could be incorporated into one’s daily life, making the function of the space convenient, easy and inviting. Each and every corner was given a great amount of thought, and attention to detail was key here, exactly what JDV Interior Designers is famous for. Every detail was thought through in this custom-designed space. From the exterior to the interior this had to be a unique experience, giving you a glimpse into the versatility of design by JDV Interior Designers.
