Mariette Chapman started her career in the design field, working as an Interior Decorator for several companies in the Helderberg and Stellenbosch areas. During this time she became interested in Paint-techniques, and started decorating pieces of furniture for her clients that wished to integrate their existing furniture with their interior design.
She fell in love with the process of creating beautiful painted finishes on furniture, as well as paint effects on walls. She was commissioned to work on a large project in Franschhoek, where she had to paint all the walls of an old Cape Dutch home with paint effects, and also painted the kitchen and bedroom cupboards in a French Provencal style finish.
After completing this project, she decided to launch Cape Kitchen Designs in 2002, and started concentrating on painting mainly kitchens and bedroom cupboards in various hand painted finishes. As her partner was also in the Kitchen Design and installation field, they could work on projects combining their skills, and could offer their clients unique and beautifully crafted kitchens.
She has worked as a sub contractor for various kitchen companies who wish to offer their clients the option of a Hand Painted kitchen or bedroom cupboards.
During the past 16 years, Mariette has completed hundreds of kitchens, and always enjoys communicating with her clients and making sure that they are thrilled with their final product. She loves dealing with people, and also being able to form lifelong friendships with her clients.
She is very fortunate to have 2 wonderful men working for her, Sedrik and Aaron, whom she has personally trained to give a professional paint finish, and they have been with her for the past 14 years. She knows that she can leave them on site with absolute peace of mind, and know that they will complete the job to perfection.
