Olwen McAuliffe in one of the two period reception rooms in her home. The French doors open onto the sunny back garden. The walls and shelving are painted in Farrow & Ball Hague Blue. The floor is from Trunk flooring and the sofa is from The Sofa Room in Dublin 4. The graphic on the mantlepiece is apt as Olwen fell in love with the house the minute she saw it. “We put in a bid and walked away thinking, ‘No way will we get it’. A few days later, we got a call saying, ‘It’s yours’. We were thrilled.” Picture by Tony Gavin Gallery

Fashion designer Heidi Higgins in the light-filled kitchen of her new home in Tipperary. The house was designed by Damien Morrissey of AOCA Engineering Consultants. The kitchen units in a mix of colours are from local company Savvy Kitchens — some are white, studio green and pink, while Heidi opted for a pink island. To add an industrial touch, she chose copper lighting, taps and a copper cooker hood. The paintings above the double-sided stove are from CA Design. Photo: Tony Gavin Gallery

Teacher and artist Gillian Tierney in the cosy TV room of her newly built house. The flooring here is used throughout the house, harmoniously linking the spaces. The two-sided wood-burning stove is surrounded by panelling made by Seamus and painted in Slate Blue paint from Gillian’s own range. There are big pull-back glass doors to the courtyard. “We got the bricks for the patio for €50, and Seamus made it during lockdown.” The table was bought by her brother in a charity shop in England.

Lara in the elegant drawing room of her home. The herringbone flooring is from Trunk, and vintage furniture includes an Italian suite from the 1950s from acquired.ie. The French sideboard also dates from the 1950s, while the coffee table from Pamono is from the 1970s. The painting is by Irish artist Chloe Early. Photo: Tony Gavin Gallery
