Brendan Mullins Decor is a fully insured and VAT registered company working on commercial, domestic and industrial projects. Some of Brendans’ previous work includes Terminal Two in Dublin Airport, the Four Courts, Áras an Uachtarain as well as featuring on RTÉ One shows ‘Desperate Houses,’ and ‘Home Rescue.’
“I initially worked as a barman which opened up doors for me to work abroad which I did for two years. When I came home, I wanted a job that I could see myself doing long into the future. That’s when I started working for a painting company, so I came to painting fairly late compared to a lot of apprentices.
I worked for one of the largest painting companies in Dublin for 17 years which gave me a great education and experience. Two years ago, after a lot of thought, I decided I wanted a new challenge so I started up my own company,” said Brendan Mullins.
“I was lucky enough to know Peter Finn of MDS Construction from my previous company and that is what then led to me being involved with the ‘Home Rescue,’ show. “It has been a real pleasure working on the show and seeing the difference it makes to peoples’ lives,” added Mr Mullins.
This company is based in Dublin and works throughout Dublin and the surrounding areas.
“I set up on my own and things were going really well and then the pandemic hit. Since the restrictions have lifted, things have luckily been busy again. People have been in their houses for the last two years, looking at things they want to change or freshen up. I am seeing people are getting a lot of inspiration from social media and DIY television shows.
“I really enjoy working with people and helping them with their colour choices. People are becoming a lot braver as previously it was greys, whites and creams whereas now people are realising that if you use a little bit of colour in your home it can make a massive difference to the space,” he enthused.
“People are adding colour to their rooms through cushions, lampshades, blinds, curtains, bespoke feature walls and woodwork. Woodwork has gone from traditionally being plain white or wood stain to being a feature colour. A lot of people that are in tight spaces are painting their walls and ceiling white to make their space look bigger whilst adding colour in with simple touches such as accessories and the natural light coming in through the windows.
Mustards, greens and blues are going to be popular colour choices over the coming months and a colour coming to the fore and being used much more frequently throughout the house is pink, which I’m enjoying seeing how well it works around the house, concluded Brendan Mullins.
