It's all in the detail

New from Irish interior designer Gail Wall Morris of Wall Morris Design. (See my previous post here.) A beautiful renovation and of course it's all in the detail. I'll let Gail explain.

It's my own home, a 100 year-old, renovated workman's cottage, in Blackrock, Co. Dublin, Ireland.

When I bought the house, it needed complete renovation and rebuild, in order to re-layout and optimize the space, raise ceiling heights up to the roof line. The new extension is clad in the original bricks, taken from the demolished interior walls. I allocated budget on designing an interior joinery package, so that all the detailing matched: ie - the kitchen , the external and interior doors, the trim work and architraves all tie in together. Most of the furniture I also designed. Everything is bespoke. The interior layout is built in a 'U' Shape and surrounds a courtyard, so that the sunlight comes into the house all day long. The colour scheme is tone-on tone caramel with accents in black glass, black granite and black-stained furniture.

Magnifique ! Fabulous and intelligent creativity here. This house makes it to the top of my favourites of all times. I even suffer of envy, I want this house for me!

I love the glass heart. I think having a fun surprise in a design makes it even more exciting.

Great study in neutrals but I would get so bored with this but I could pop color anywhere and change it up with the seasons. I take that back, good study in color, could even have gone with the chocolates or greys.

What a brilliant use of limited space (especially that bedroom closet). Everything beautifully thought through, and love the colours.

Being in the roofing industry, I have to say my favorites are the pictures with the skylights. It makes such a great difference in the feel of the rooms - especially in the smaller room, like the bathroom! Beautiful!
