Warda Albertyn

Entrepreneur

Warda Albertyn owns Decor-dent Living, a Cape Town-based company that specialises in home improvement and interior design.

The company serves homeowners, property developers, estate agents and architectural industries and is one of the few black-Dwned enterprises in the competitive and cutting-edge Cape Town design sector. Warda matriculated from Harold Cressy Senior Secondary School and completed a few modules towards a BCom degree but dropped out because of financial challenges.

She worked at a television repair company where, because of her apparent entrepreneurial zeal, her employer helped her to acquire a Teljoy franchise. Decor-dent Living currently outsources the labour aspect of business, which creates job opportunities for small and medium businesses, enabling them to appoint or employ previously disadvantaged citizens. The short-term goal of her company is to provide for all home decor and renovation requirements. These include window coverings, kitchen designs, flooring, painting, lighting, burglar bars and gates.
