Erin Go Bragh!

Happy St. Patrick's Day! When I hear this exclamation my first few thoughts are: shamrocks, parades, and beer (green optional!). When it comes to decorating though, there are many other ways to bring a bit of Ireland into your home. For me Ireland conjures up images of lush green pastures dotted with sheep, stone walls covered in lichen, and a hazy aqua mist.

The best thing about decorating personal spaces is that every person has their own interpretation of what something means to them. We always try to incorporate meaningful funiture and accessories into our redesign because that's what makes each space truly unique. Below are some rooms we found that could have been different interpretations of Ireland based on the pictures above. What does Ireland mean to you?

Interiors:


KITCHEN

Misty Green backsplash with cool toned silver chairs and vent hood.

Matte gold mirrors provides glamour and reflects light in a foyer or entryway, more practical than a pot of gold.
