Our Story

Welcome to Alisha White Design, where spaces are transformed into captivating havens. Led by visionary entrepreneur Alisha Nefdt, our Cape Town-based company has become a creative force, renowned for crafting personalized and timeless interiors that authentically reflect our clients' unique identities.

Alisha's multifaceted approach to design draws inspiration from her upbringing. Guided by her father, a skilled craftsman with remarkable technical expertise, she developed an innate understanding of how things work. Combined with her mother's description of her as a dreamer and an escapist, Alisha possesses a remarkable ability to turn dreams into reality. 

Embracing cutting-edge technology like BIM and AI, she seamlessly communicates and collaborates with clients and building teams throughout the design process.

Meticulous attention to detail and flawless execution define our approach. We create spaces that emanate harmony, balance, and promote overall well-being, leaving a permanent impression on our clients.

As an influential figure in the industry, Alisha continuously pushes boundaries, redefining transformative spaces. Our portfolio now extends to luxury hotels and resorts, while private client work remains our priority. Our bespoke interiors have garnered recognition in esteemed publications like Visi Magazine and Elle Décor.
