This is absolutely the best part of any project. That blank sheet of paper when anything is possible. Styling the interior for the Lisfannon house was born from a need to firstly make the aesthetic as warm as possible. Being open plan meant very few walls for colour or wallpaper so making it difficult to inject that feeling. It meant that the furnishings needed to make up for that. It also felt very much like it should reflect the landscape, so we decided to go for autumn, woodland colours where possible. I might have been tempted to throw in a few exotic animals into the Irish landscape and fully appreciate that there aren't many leopards or zebras wandering around but we can put that down to poetic license.
For the floors, apart from the odd printed cow skin we decided to go with vintage over dyed rugs. These are the type of rug that used to grace my granny's floor but I promise they are making a come back and styled with more contemporary pieces can look quite cool, especially laid on the large format concrete look tiles. These large grey tiles are a bit of a risk as Ive put them pretty much everywhere downstairs and I'm worried that the final look wont feel unlike the pre construction concrete tile already there. That will be a bit of a blow considering the cost of them but I'm reliably informed by Paul at Creative Stone and Tile that they will look awesome!
