SANDYFORD APARTMENT RENOVATION
I bought a 2 bedroom apartment that needed some upgrading to improve light, style and above all to maximize on storage space.
I found Catherine to be professional, innovative, friendly, easy to a access, quick to answer my questions/concerns and great at sharing ideas and links to companies who supplied soft furnishings, larger pieces of furniture and all kinds of lighting etc.,
Catherine also worked really well with the workmen who carried out the different jobs from making the beautiful kitchen & walk in wardrobe she had carefully designed to the electrician who carried out her innovative ideas around lighting.
I am absolutely thrilled with the end result of Catherine's work and can't wait to move in to my beautiful apartment.
I would highly recommend 're-interiors' to anyone who wants to significantly improve their living or work space.
We were working with a tight budget and time schedule. Catherine was the most amazing help with both these things. Catherine has a beautiful style which we saw and loved at the 'Ideal Homes' exhibition. However Catherine didn't just try to put her style on our home. She spent a lot of time working out what we liked and her mood boards reflected this. Catherine was involved with the renovation project from the start and was great at suggesting alternative room layouts and lighting options to make our home as beautiful as it is. When it came to furnishings Catherine was invaluable. She must have spend hours trawling the Internet to suggest furniture that suited the space and our budget. It was also wonderful to be able to get a professional opinion on some of our choices and our existing furniture. This saved us so much time. Catherine came up with brilliant ideas which make our home really stand out. One of my favourites is the library wall leading to an open boot room with oak panelling and light feature behind it. Another favourite is our nursery which Catherine designed for our previous home. We were able to bring most of it with us. The giraffe light feature always makes me smile. Catherine's colour and paint choices were and are fantastic. With three small children we are so glad she recommended paints that were child friendly. The colours themselves reflect Catherine's attention to detail because each room's colour reflects the room use and purpose. I was so glad that Catherine was so good as I found myself at sea with the range of choices that are out there. The cherry on the cake is that Catherine is lovely, such an easy person to talk to. We had so many laughs with her. If you are considering a renovation or house build, I couldn't recommend Catherine more.

We spoke to Catherine with regards to helping us organise the layout and final details of a new extension. Catherine was hugely professional in her approach and we really appreciated her well thought out and practical approach to making our home work for us and to get the best from our plans. She suggested simple changes that really made a difference and we would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone. We are looking forward to working again with her soon!
PERIOD PROPERTY, DUN LAOGHAIRE
I highly recommend Catherine and her work. She has a great eye for colour and texture and effortlessly finds options to choose from. She is very understanding and respects the client's desires and priorities. She has the ability to see the bigger picture and also the knowledge and expertise to tune into the smaller details so that the overall look is harmonious. All her contacts for painting, plasterwork, electrics, and woodwork turned up trumps. She has been the catalyst for transforming our house.
APARTMENT RENOVATION CARRICKMINES
I recently had an online consultation with Catherine and was extremely impressed. Catherine was very pleasant to deal with and she got a good idea of the project through email prior to the actual consultation. She had already looked into certain areas of the project and came with some great ideas. She suggested some key changes to the project which I had not thought of myself but really made a difference. I would have no hesitation recommending Catherine and will certainly get in touch with her the next time I am updating my home.
Catherine helped us to turn our apartment into our home. During the process we never felt like just another customer, she made us feel special. Catherine spent a lot of time and effort to ensure that we are happy with every detail. She listened carefully to what we wanted and came up with a design that we love. Some of her ideas took us out of our comfort zone and our apartment is better for it. We could not recommend re-interiors enough to anybody thinking of making their home warm and unique.
Thank you Catherine for all your hard work!

TWO UP TWO DOWN
Catherine was a god send to my renovation project.
She was extremely generous with her time and talent.
She listened to what I wanted and offered sound advice without ever being pushy.
I loved all her ideas.
She surprised and impressed me time and time again with her ability to create style and classic beauty using simple pieces.
Catherine is very professional and helped me choose colours for a flat that needed a massive face lift. The end result was amazing. Her suggestions were straight forward, simple and suited my budget.
FULL DOWNSTAIRS RENOVATION
From the initial meeting through to the finishing I was delighted with the work of re-interiors. Catherine had great ideas to get the most out of small and awkward spaces, she involved me throughout the process to design my living room and open plan living/dining and kitchen and to my budget. She gave great direction and ideas, was lovely to work with and always delivered to a high standard. I am very happy to recommend re-interiors for future clients.
CLONTARF SNUG MAKEOVER
Catherine came up with a fantastic plan for our TV room. She suggested a very clever colour scheme and cabinet design which managed to combine cool and modern with warm and inviting.
Despite having lots of extra storage, the room feels more airy and spacious.
We are more than happy with our new cosy space.

I availed of Catherine’s 2 hour Consultation service. It was definitely money well spent !
She offered fresh ideas & a vision. She was extremely generous with her time & nothing was too much trouble. Post our consultation Catherine provided a mood board together with a summary document outlining where items could be purchased & providing names of professionals to undertake any work. It has been my bible! And I am gradually implementing her plans.
Catherine has a lovely approach to her work & is pragmatic.
She didn’t try to force her ideas on me but listened & made sure she took on board my style & taste. It was exactly what I was looking for.
I found Catherine’s Consultation Service hugely beneficial & would highly recommend it.
When Catherine arrived to assess our home for a complete renovation, she was a breath of fresh air.
She interpreted our needs, wants and wishes with fantastic insight and our dream home evolved.
We could not have done it without her and we have no hesitation in recommending her services.
I can heartily recommend Catherine as an Interior Designer.
From the first time we met at the initial consultation, she really listened to me.
She kept in touch throughout the process and was always pleasant to deal with for us and the tradesmen.
She encouraged our re-use of items of furniture by updating them with some fantastic results that saved us some considerable cost.
Our whole house was give a fresh, contemporary makeover and we all love it again!

DUN LAOGHAIRE HOUSE
Our home was a nightmare when we moved in and although we had an idea of what we like, we had no idea on where to start.
A friend gave us Catherine's name and told us we'll be well looked after. No truer words!
When we first met, she walked around the house with us, chatted with the family and got a good sense of how we live.
Her design was incredible, it was as if she had read our minds, she really heard us and delivered.
We now have a very comfortable home that we are so proud of. It feels spacious and contemporary and she has somehow managed to make some of our beloved bits and pieces seem perfect where they are now.
We recommend her as a designer and always give her name to anyone considering hiring one.

THE ENNIS BAKERY
We were going ahead with our own plans for our bakery renovation when we met Catherine and asked her to look over them.
She visited the site and listened to our brief and came back to us with a complete new set of floor plans and ideas that far exceeded what we hoped for.
We couldn't believe how much better the space would work for the staff and customers.
Her knowledge and enthusiasm were very reassuring and we can't recommend her highly enough.
