Sometime after moving back to Dublin I decided to study as an Interior Designer with the Dublin Institute of Design and graduated with a RHODEC Diploma in 2003. I have over 15 years experience working on commercial and residential projects such as show homes, private homes, offices, bars and retail in both Dublin and the U.K.
One of my favourite Interior Design projects was way back in 2006 for RTE Show-house. I designed an affordable 3 bedroom semi-detached home for a young family who were just starting out on the property ladder. Seeing the delight on their faces when the design of their home was unveiled to them was an extremely rewarding experience for me.
In 2008 my Interior Design career with IKEA Dublin began, it was a very exciting time as I worked on the design and build of the Dublin store and other IKEA stores across the U.K. Here I created the most inspiring, affordable room sets and solutions on the Irish and UK retail markets. My love of clever, affordable, functional Scandinavian design with a passion for beautiful interiors and attention to detail was nurtured throughout this time.
