We all have a vision – an idea of the type of space that we want to create, live and work in. Marcia Leader’s success lies in her ability to intimately understand and create that vision in the real world. She is an experienced South African, residential, hospitality and corporate interior designer and decorator. She does this by offering a turnkey service from concept to completion with exceptional attention to detail.

Marcia embraces multiple styles based on client needs and desires, but has perfected the art of combining monochromatic palettes with small, delicate colour accents to create distinct, visually stunning spaces. She places an emphasis on the psychology of colour, not in a general sense, but at a personal level. She works with clients to understand how different hues and shades affect them, and customises her designs to meet their individual tastes. The result is individualised, beautiful design and decoration that endures, transcending trends for lasting beauty that simply doesn’t fade.

Her work can be found in South African spaces, from Johannesburg to Cape Town, and her qualifications distinguish her from the typical “cushions and curtains” interior designer or interior decorator. Marcia holds a Qualified Certificate in Interior Decorating. She also holds a Project Management Certificate, has studied marketing management and brings extensive technical experience to her clients’ projects, from architectural design and 3D renderings to deep constructional expertise. Much like her approach, her capabilities supersede the benchmark of interior design and decorating.

Beyond her professional life and qualifications, Marcia is an avid dancer and animal lover, and an experienced traveller with a passion for European architecture and design. She draws inspiration from all of these experiences.


Marcia from Styling interiors, has been my Interior Decorator for a few years now. She has completed many areas in my home. I was so pleased with her work that I hired her to style our holiday home. Marcia and I have a long term relationship because she has a clear understanding of my needs and taste allowing for a smoother and easier process. Her projects run on time. She is budget-conscious offering a value for money service. One of Marcia’s great strengths is her ability to incorporate existing pieces of furniture and decor while adding fresh elements. This approach allows us to experience a unique design in our homes. I would gladly refer anyone to Marcia, from Styling Interiors. -Louise Myburgh
