‘THE magic IS AL­WAYS AMPLIFIED WHEN THERE IS col­lab­o­ra­tion.’

House and Leisure (South Africa) - - View Heads Up - KELLY ADAMII THE IN­TE­RIOR DESIGNERI

With her keen eye, im­pec­ca­ble taste and a cre­ative streak that keeps things in­ter­est­ing, jour­nal­ism grad­u­ate Kelly Adami has al­ways had a pas­sion for beau­ti­ful in­te­ri­ors. So it was no sur­prise when she trained as an in­te­rior de­signer af­ter univer­sity and then be­gan her ca­reer as a decor jour­nal­ist, writ­ing about spa­ces she dreamt of de­sign­ing one day. Af­ter some time spent in re­tail, Kelly de­cided to take a leap of faith and started her own in­te­rior de­sign busi­ness, Cop­per­leaf. What used to run on the sup­port of odd de­sign jobs from friends is now a grown-up con­sul­tancy, with projects in­clud­ing kit­ting out a de­signer bath­room showroom and pri­vate game lodge, as well as launch­ing an ex­clu­sive range of fur­ni­ture and ac­ces­sories, such as gold- and cop­per-plated mir­rors. ‘The col­lec­tion will in­clude spe­cific items that I feel I need for my projects but don’t seem to be avail­able in stores,’ says Kelly, who has al­ways had a strong de­sire to go her own way.
