“Your home should tell the story of who you are, and be a collection of what you love.”

- Nate Berkus

I always tell my clients, I can come into your home or office space and redesign everything, design a brand new space. It is so important for me to step back and let the client take the lead, while I give professional advice and guidance. I love using important pieces or heritage and incorporate them into a new design. In that way, your stamp and your personal style is still in your house or office, I just help you work with what you have and bring it all together for that sophisticated look.

We can custom design and make any furniture to fit into a specific space and to your requirements.

How does it work?

We offer a turnkey service for the residential, retail and corporate clients from the design process to the implementation and the installation. Firstly we come together for a consultation, I get to know you and your specific needs. We will then put the designs and ideas together for you and we will look at the endless amount of fabric options available. I will help you choose all your finishes, fabrics and décor along the way.

Then comes the quotation where we will give you a layout of all the prices, we try our best to take all budgets into consideration. As soon as you are satisfied with the designs and quotation and all the finances are sorted out, the process will begin. If all is ready and done, we will do the installation – where the magic happens!

Who Am I?

Let me introduce myself – I am Uline Steyn – Interior Designer and owner of Velvet Interior and Design. I am quite artistic although I don’t like to admit it. I love dogs! So if I greet your dogs before you, please don’t take it personally. My own preferred interior style is a mix between Eclectic, Shabby Chic and Vintage. I love velvet and flowers, especially peonies – thus the logo and the name. And I absolutely love my job…

I remember as a little girl, my mom would frequently rearrange the furniture in the house, change the way the curtains were draped, make new curtains or move around accessories from the one table to the next. As I got older, I helped her, she asked me to give my opinion, I would help move things around or we would go fabric shopping together. Then I started doing it too - with every school holiday, I would rearrange everything in my room, all the furniture and accessories. I remember feeling such pride after I was done, from chaos to perfection. I believe without a doubt that my mom influenced me to become an Interior Designer. But then again my dad, he is the perfect handyman, and he taught me so much over the years, he has always been the person to execute all my brilliant plans.

I have my degree in BSc. Consumer Science (Interior Retail Management), I have been working in the industry since 2012 and Velvet Interior and Design was born in 2014. This business is my pride and passion – I have worked very hard to build the name and I have been blessed with the absolute best and loyal clients over the years.

My business exists thanks to my family- my wonderful husband who helps me with installations (although he has his own very successful business- but he can’t say no to me…), my mom who helps with the finer stitching and support, my dad with his miracles working hands and practical outlook – he helps with woodwork and restorations from time to time and everything I can’t do. And my in-laws – for always being there and supporting us.


Velvet radiates an abundance of professionalism, passion and creativity….all the characteristics of its tiny, friendly owner!


Uline has a great gift of understanding her client’s heart and headspace and as always this project was a dream and totally exceeded all my expectations. She is very personally involved in each detail and has the ability to steer you in choices that are not only wise, stunning and cost-effective but also to gently nudge out of bad choices. Her very kind yet confident nature is very comforting and her attitude of going to the ends of the earth and working tirelessly to get every detail perfect is truly commendable!

I highly recommend Velvet Interiors for the Best interior design that surprisingly suits your pocket for spaces that make a house a warm, beautiful and loving home to be very proud of!
