On the Inside Cathy Barnes

Cathy Barnes

Cathy Barnes is the creative force behind On the Inside. Born and bred in Durban, South Africa she obtained her Btech Interior Design degree from the Durban University of Technology. She then went on to travel the world before returning to her roots and establishing On the Inside Interior Design in 2006. Since setting up On the Inside, Cathy has undertaken many projects including complete renovations and redecoration for prominent hotels, restaurants, retail spaces and corporate offices across the country. Cathy’s work is typified by her creative approach, sophisticated sensibility and technical mastery.

When she’s not hard at work creating beautiful spaces, you can find her playing on the beach with her two gorgeous little boys or stitching up a storm on her sewing machine, and listening to anything from Goldfish to Rusted Root.
