In the madness of trying to finish a project, sometimes you have to stop and smell the 🌹 roses, I think I’ve wanted a #chinoiserie dining room since visiting the grand Georgians such as Carton & Coolatin house many years ago, and at last it has happened. I can’t wait to get the final furniture in to partner with the vintage Italian lighting #behindthescenes #refurb #interiordesign
I feel very lucky to be able to share some special news 🤰. This has been a bumper week of events & festive sequins, and it has been amazing to have been nominated for Young Business Woman of the Year @image.ie awards & also Young Designer of the Year @fitoutawards. It’s been a bit of a journey to this point so I’m feeling very grateful to be able to share our news x beyond excited to be parents @barrybyrne
Every so often a project comes by that makes your 💙 sing just a little, a long time design hero @francis_sultana private home featuring his blue salon, complete with contemporary art & classical furniture is 👌🏻👌🏻, the print version is worth a look 👀 @archdigest #thedesignseeker
Despite coming for design week each year to Milan, I don’t always get a chance to do some cultural sights. Of course the @fondazioneprada blew my mind 🤯, The palette and form of this tiled space designed for the 2020 cruise collection show was 👌🏻, and the Alice in Wonderland world of rotating 🍄. Add some @damienhirst & @jeffkoons. #thedesignseeker #milan #pradafoundation
It’s really nice to photograph some projects that we have finished over the last few years. We’ve been a little behind but hope in the next few months to capture some of our completed projects. Including this light filled contemporary extension, with slated style kitchen by designed in collaboration with @newcastledesign.ie and warm tone flooring. I particularly like the aubergine palette of the marble, and bespoke coffee cabinet. #suziemcadamdesign #thedesignseeker #kitchendesign photos by @ruthmariaphotos
A sunny autumnal stroll with my favourite white bear 🐻. Dublin canal is looking so beautiful today and a little moment of calm before 🤞 moving house & opening the doors of @thedesign_seeker this month 🤯😆, so it’s nice to take a little time to enjoy the 🍁🍂🍁before the madness commences
Our @thedesign_seeker material library is at last complete! Since I’ve started this journey I wanted to bring together some of the most beautiful and well crafted fabrics, wallpaper & trimmings together at our showroom space, surrounded by chocolate brown cabinetry, I think I might not leave 🥰 #thedesignseeker #newbeginnings #designstudio #designlibrary
Just wow 🤩 It’s not everyday one of your projects gets on the cover @image_interiors 🎉🍾🙌🏻, congrats @googlepuns on the gorgeous November / December issue which is out this week and features a very special Georgian residence we completed recently. Big thanks to all the amazing team who worked on this & also Fionnuala O Connor of @u.architecture who collaborated with us on the project, with wonderful imagery by @ruthmariaphotos
So close and yet so far. I have a new found respect and appreciation for anyone who takes on a huge renovation 🏠 project. Even though I do this for a living, I didn’t realize how stressful 🤯, all consuming and pressurized a personal build can be. But now I understand and the end is very much in sight! I am so excited to be moving home 🏡 very soon. #thedesignseeker #myownreno #nearlythere it’s going to be an interesting month pulling everything together but I hope the results will be worth it!
Smiles all around today @image_interiors #designawards. I am beyond honoured & thrilled to have been named Interior Designer of the Year 2019. @image_interiors truly champion Irish design, with so many makers, designers and craft people nominated today. Also thanks to our incredible design team whose talent, creativity & hard work has made our projects come to life over the past year, @orlamacken @conormbarry @lisa_n_87 @deirdremcauliffe & @isabellecartondunne & @merelylily who we missed today! And a special thank you to our clients who have given us the opportunity to create and collaborate with them on their design projects 🙏🏻 #grateful #thedesignseeker #designawards
The quote ”Nothing in the world is worth having or worth doing unless it means effort, pain & difficulty” springs to mind when you need to get a 1 tonne marble bath 🛀from @tilestyle into position 🤯😂🙀 but hopefully the results will be worth the RSJs & cranes so far😅 #myrenovation #thedesignseeker
Supporting #Selfieforsafety today, @volvocarsie Although it’s 2019, women are still more likely to get injured in a car crash, because male crash test dummies are the standard. The E.V.A initiative by @volvocars tests for all people, no matter what size, gender, or body shape. This has made it possible for @volvocarsie to design its cars in a way that protects both men & women equally and anything that supports the equality of the sexes I can get behind 💪🏻💪🏻 take your own #selfieforsafety and be part of the initiative supporting #safetyforall just be sure to park safely & have your seatbelt buckled.
