New Build, West Cork

Harriet found me through a search on my website. She and her husband lived in the UK but were building a holiday home in Glandore where her husband went as a child for his summer holidays. It was a unique project at the time as it was mostly remote. Harriet would come over just to see the final fabrics and select the final finishes.

” Celene worked with us from September 2017 to August 2018 on the interior design of a new-build holiday home in West Cork, Ireland. As we are based in the UK, Celene mainly advised us remotely – by phone and email. We also met up with Celene a couple of times in person to finalise and confirm choices.

Celene particularly assisted us with choice of bathroom tiles and blinds, paint colours throughout the house including the kitchen, and all curtains and blinds throughout. In addition, Celene advised on accessories including ideas for lighting, rugs and ornaments.

Celene was a pleasure to work with throughout, responsive and ready to help. Celene came up with some great ideas for fabrics, tiles and paint colours and executed the order, delivery and fitting of them very efficiently using reputable local suppliers. Celene was also able to secure discounts for us on some products.

Celene worked well with our architect and lead builder to achieve our vision for the house and we are delighted with the result. Celene has many useful contacts for sourcing and installing products such as curtains and these proved very useful. We would highly recommend Celene as an interior designer, including for remote working jobs. “
