We profile a wide range of interiors from period properties that have been lovingly restored to newly built homes and extensions that are architecturally edgy with cool, contemporary features.
In our summer issue, Caroline Allen talks to interior designer Justina Gruzdyte about her approach to redesigning the interiors of a revamped dormer house with panoramic views of the MacGillycuddy Reeks in County Kerry. “Functionality was the owners’ highest priority in the renovation of the house,” says Justina. “They wanted a place they could call home and that would stay true to their shared modern lifestyle. The living room needed to be spacious but have enough seating for guests as they love entertaining.” The owners’ collection of paintings and prints built up over the years has been incorporated into the design and new artwork was also acquired during the renovation.
