Clontarf Interiors was established by Linda McNally in 2004. Since the beginning, this company has been serious about achieving quality in every single aspect of their work, which is clearly reflected in their portfolio of residential and commercial projects.
Atmosphere and energy are the essential ingredients that go into creating the personality of your home. They make visitors’ experiences unforgettable but more importantly that they allow the occupants to live in an environment that creates great pleasure every day.
During Ms McNally’s many years in business, the success of the house comes from the owner, (the house is tailored to meet the needs of its occupants). At the end of a project, it’s important that each room evokes a sense of wellbeing, comfort and happiness.
No two households have or share the same requirements, taste or style so she approaches each project with a blank canvas and allows the client to lay down the first brushstrokes of their individual style.
Every day is so different and every client is so different when it comes to interiors. I lived in London for 10 years and travelled a lot with work. This gave me the opportunity to discover feng shui and to see so many different interiors. The Americans have great taste when it comes to their homes which is probably why I have such an eclectic style. When I had children I needed a more flexible career so I went back to college to study interior design as it was something I always had an interest in, revealed Linda McNally.
“The pandemic has changed how homeowners want to use their home, people want to have their own space within the house, they want to get away from their children and equally children want to get away from their parents.
“The price of materials is going up daily in some cases and the cost of transport has gone up hugely. It is very hard especially for builders as they have to reprice their jobs before they commence working on a project. The price of wood and mdf has also gone through the roof. Some people are waiting to see if the price of materials will level off, especially people who are building large extensions, or new builds. I think the prices will just keep rising,’’ she added.
“Over the next number of months, I see muted earthy tones combined with natural textures along with bold patterned wallpapers are becoming very popular.
A feature wall is all that is needed. Carpets are becoming very popular, especially patterned carpets. It is all about comfort within the home and since the pandemic, people have realised home should be our own shelter, a deeply nurturing space where we can concentrate, be creative, have fun and relax and above all cosy!”
