There are so many decisions to make when designing or renovating your home – from colours and fabrics to room layout and soft furnishings – it can be a lot for any novice to wrap their head around.

house 2019 will take place at the RDS this weekend from May 24-26 and one of the hottest tickets at the interior design event is the Design Clinic, where 24 of Ireland’s leading interior designers will be on hand to offer free one-to-one advice to attendees.

Meet some of the interior designers, who will be at house this weekend to answer all of your design queries:

If it’s a question of colour – Adele Roche has all the answers. As a colour and design consultant, she advises on residential and commercial projects and knows how important choosing the correct colour for each room is. Adele uses her interior knowledge combined with colour psychology when working with each client and will be on-hand at house to solve your colour quandaries. 

Award winning designer Gwen Kenny of Divine Design has completed many residential and commercial projects over the years including work on some of Dublin’s well-known bars. As one of the most experienced designers in Ireland – a session with Gwen is highly sought after, and an opportunity not to be missed. 

From Kerry, Michelle Keane, the design mind behind the award-winning mibeau Interiors brand will also be on hand at the Design Clinic. Michelle has become one of the most celebrated names in the interior design industry and has a knack for freshening up tired interiors and adding a luxury but attainable look to any style of interior.

Noelle O’Donoghue has over 20 years of design experience. Having originally been involved in the fashion industry she has a passion for fabrics and colour so is perfectly placed to offer expert advice for people designing a new space in their home. Her business Noelle Interiors stocks a range of curtains and other interiors for the home adding to Noelle’s knowledge on current industry trends.

Also offering her expert views this weekend is Jackie Carton – an interior architect specialising in residential interior design. Jackie has 10 years’ experience delivering full design schemes - from modern and colourful to classically elegant. With her early career spent in the printing industry as a graphic reproducer, Jackie has an eye for design and colour, and will be imparting some of that wisdom with house attendees this weekend.

The Design Clinic at house is one of the most popular features of the event, so organisers are advising to get there early to secure your spot with an expert.

2019 marks the fourth year that house – Ireland’s premier interior design event – will take place at Dublin’s RDS. Sponsored by SONAS Bathrooms, the event runs from May 24-26. For further information and tickets, visit the house website.
