A collection of colour
Published 07/10/2011 | 05:00
This home has been built to high standards and is tastefully presented with many non-standard features included in the interior.
Situated on a one acre site, it is located only a short drive to Caragh Village, Naas Town Centre and the M7/N7.
The accommodation comprises of entrance hall, living room, dining room, games room, kitchen/dining area, utility room, with wc off. Upstairs there are four bedrooms, including one en-suite, and a family bathroom.
As winter closes in, the need to find comfort and find solace in your home grows, which we can certainly neglect to remember when it comes to planning and designing our kitchens.
While I am a fan of the neutral colour palette, whenever I visit a home that is filled with fun and colour while all the outside is grey and dull, it is hard to resist the effect.
I'm going to create a hypothetical frivolous kitchen for Halverstown Gate, starting with some full-on floral curtains from Anthropologie. This US and London based store sell online to Ireland.
The tones of their Vernal Cusp curtain are a perfect starting point for the colour collection in this new kitchen. (www.anthropologie.eu)
The Irish store, Table Lighting Chair, have a wonderful collection of retro and mid-century furniture. I chose their G Plan Oval Fresco Range extending dining table as my centrepiece of furniture in my new kitchen/diner, priced at €450.00, www.tablelightingchair.com, surrounded by inexpensive Jules visitor chairs from Ikea, €23.99.
I would then pile the kitchen with similar toned but alternatively patterned accessories, such as a Lemonade clock from Velvet Brown, priced at £42.56, www.velvetbrown.co.uk, a Farm tea towel from No Fixed Abode, €14.00, www.nofixedabode.ie, and a retro styled Roberts radio from Littlewoods, sale price €194.00, www.littlewoodsireland.ie.
