Ask The Designer

If you didn’t happen to catch any of the October issues on the Irish Examiner then you really missed out……..

Why I hear you ask?  ………….

Well because for the last 4 weeks yours truly here was the featured Designer in their  “Ask The Designer” column in the Property and Interiors supplement!!!  The column runs every Saturday when a guest designer is invited to answer questions sent in by readers.  I was delighted when I was asked as it was quite exciting to have been featured in one of the national newspapers.

in case you missed my 15 minutes of fame, I have very nicely scanned the issues here for you 🙂   Just click on the image and the article will load.

As you probably know I already have an “Ask The Designer” link on this blog and frequently get questions from readers.  I tend to reply to these privately, but owing to the to large amount of mails I’ve received I thought it might be a fun to feature these as a regular segment.

So if you have any decorating or design questions please email them to me at and I’ll do my best to solve your problem.  Also include a picture if you can.

And readers please feel free to comment with your own suggestions and answers!
