INSPIRATIONS: COCOA BEAN INTERIORS

INSPIRATIONS: COCOA BEAN INTERIORS

Deanne McBride, the founder and lead designer at Cocoa Bean Interiors, holds a strong belief that modern design should possess a timeless quality, reflect the unique tastes of her clients, and enhance their lifestyles.

Deanne, along with her exceptionally talented team, has gained recognition for their ultra-chic monochromatic interiors that radiate sophistication. Cocoa Bean Interiors effortlessly blends international and local products in their creations, resulting in a richly layered and textured aesthetic that captures the eye.

Their portfolio spans residential, corporate, and hospitality projects, and although they are based in Johannesburg, they have successfully brought their signature style to various parts of Southern Africa, leaving behind a trail of enviable interiors.

Deanne is not only a valued client but also a favourite of ours, and we had the pleasure of chatting with her about her unique style and more.

Getting to know Deanne McBride

What would you say you are known for? 

Cocoa Bean is known for simple, clean, understated, warm, welcoming and liveable interiors. 

Where do you find your inspiration?  

We are very often inspired by the architectural elements of each particular project which normally influences our thought process throughout the project. We also always love referencing nature and organic shapes. 

Which of your projects are you most proud of, and why?  

I would say always our very latest project because no matter how long we’ve been in the industry we never stop learning and growing. My team always makes me so proud to see how we’ve overcome new challenges big and small. 

What is your number one design tip? 

Always buy the best quality you can afford. This will go a long way when investing in your home. When designing go with your instinct – the very first feeling you get when you walk into a space or see something is normally right. 

Where have you used Core Furniture products before?  

I’ve used Core Furniture products on several exterior patios. Hoping to specify some more stunning indoor couches… love the sofa Residenza by Eichholtz.

How did you become an interior designer?

Since a little girl I’ve always been obsessed with all things design. I started my studies in Fine Art and Fashion and when moving to Johannesburg started my interior design journey and 24 years later here I am. 

Why would you recommend Core Furniture’s offering to your clients?

Core has an amazing range of the best designer pieces offered worldwide to the South African market. I would recommend them for the client looking for quality and unique and beautiful international designer pieces. 

Which Core Furniture product do you currently have your eye on?  

I am currently crazy about the gorgeous Vondom Milos outdoor furniture range and hope to use it in an upcoming project.
