One minute I am feeling calm, hopeful for the future and enjoying the spells of sunshine here in my little corner in the West of Ireland….and the next- bam- I’m thrown into a spell of feeling a deep sense of blue. I think maybe it’s that uncertainty of where this is all

GARDEN DESIGN | The Great Outdoors

When was the last time you took a walk outside in our amazing wild landscape? I love exploring off the beaten track, discovering new paths leading to new views and stunning scenery. There is something about wandering aimlessly which makes you feel calm and rejuvenated, and sometimes I think that every new discovery brings a subtle shift in perspective. How therapeutic the rich green corners in the forest are, full

With an approach of modern design meets vintage elements the couple’s house, whose interior I also helped shape, is a stunning mix of truly fabulous taste. The couple who run Shells Surfcafe in Strandhill County

The family loved entertaining and wanted a space for dining and relaxing in the garden.
