My bedroom is my favorite room because despite being pretty colorful, it still feels relaxing. I honestly don't think I had an inspiration. This room has evolved throughout the years of living in our house and I've tweaked it, adding things I already owned until it felt right. I think that's why this is my favorite; because I didn't really have a design plan. Everything! An unlimited budget is a decorator's dream. A chance to start fresh and be creative. I would buy custom drapes, wallpaper, the whole deal. Decorate for yourself and try to express your personality through decor. It's they only way you'll feel happy with the end result.. 5 I am always room. napping in this I don't always nap, but when I do, it's in this room. Napping in another room doesn't feel right.

  • INTERIOR DESIGN QUARTERLY 19 ISSUE No 5 1 Describe why this IS your favourite room? 2 What 5 words best describe THE Inspiration behind the ROOM design? It is a guest room and I love that it is welcoming, bright, happy, eclectic and warm. Bohemian, Glamorous, Girly, Collected & Whimsical. 3 If I had an unlimited budget I would change? 4 What is the one piece of advice you would give when it comes to decorating a room? Honestly, I love this little room so I wouldn't change that much. I would like new nightstands. Something with storage would be nice for guests. Actually the closet is teeny, so if my budget were unlimited I would expand it! Allow yourself some freedom to have it come together over time. Shop your own home to fill rooms. This whole room came together with pieces that I already had. I don't feel that furnishings or textiles are permanent in any location. By swapping out art, pillows, lamps, etc, you can completely refresh a room and can fall in love with your stuff all over again. 5 I am always room. relaxing in this Since it is the guest room, I am not in here all the time. I come here when I want to really relax. It's like staying at a hotel!
  • INTERIOR DESIGN QUARTERLY ISSUE No 5 STOCKHOLM HAS ARRIVED 20
  • INTERIOR DESIGN QUARTERLY ISSUE No 5 21 OLA wILBORg, DESIgNER involved in the creation and production of STOCKHOLM, shares his thoughts on the collection. When ROCO attended the press preview FOR IKEA'S new STOCKHOLM range we were completely drawn into the smart craftsmanship and the strong focus on NATURE - WITH WALNUT TAKING CENTRE STAGE IN ALL ITS BEAUTY. what was your main source of inspiration for the collection? When we decided to work with walnut, it made me immediately think of furniture from the 50s and 60s. I looked quite a bit at those two decades, both in terms of design and in the way homes were decorated, and then compared that with how we live today. The ambition was to create a sustainable and timeless collection. what are some examples of tactile or smart solutions that you discover after using the pieces? The armrests on the dining chairs have an angle, so they fit perfectly under the table; it’s as if they’re being sucked in. The swivel function on the small chair makes sitting less static and much more comfortable. And the glass cabinet is designed to make the room visible through the piece, allowing beautiful wallpaper, for example, to become part of the cabinet.
  • INTERIOR DESIGN QUARTERLY 22 ISSUE No 5 Is there something distinctly Swedish or Scandinavian about STOCKHOLM? How do you envisage STOCKHOLM being used in people’s homes? what is the future for these pieces 20, 30 or 40 years from now? Yes, I would probably describe STOCKHOLM as Scandinavian. I was born and raised in Sweden, and that has, of course, influenced my aesthetic. At the same time, there are also international influences mixed in. I hope that people dare to explore new ways of decorating. The bedside table makes a great sideboard in the living room, perfect for storing remote controls. And the small chest of drawers can be used in the hallway, bedroom or living room. The swivel chair is also a great stand-alone piece in the bedroom. My wish is that they are still being used every day, though they might change owners over the years. I see them being passed down from one generation to another, or maybe changing hands through auctions. A long, rich and eventful life – that’s my wish for STOCKHOLM.

  • INTERIOR DESIGN QUARTERLY 24 ISSUE No 5 SHOP REPORT LOST WEEKEND Lost Weekend is an Interior Design Studio and Design Store based in Dun Laoghaire, Co. Dublin. THE store has an ever changing offering of contemporary furniture, lighting and fabrics. WE TALK TO CO-OWNER EMILY... Why did you decide to open lost weekend? Honestly?!.....my youngest daughter was nearly 2 years old and I was getting itchy feet. I was working freelance and was principle designer for Ceadogan Rugs in Wexford but I needed more of a challenge. I suggested to my husband Declan that we have another baby or I open my own business, hence Lost Weekend was born! Describe what you do. We provide a complete interior design service including furniture, lighting and window and floor coverings. We’re focussed on design furniture and are proud to represent some of the most exclusive European brands. What was the concept behind the interior design of the studio/shop? We wanted a clean uncomplicated space in which to work and display our furniture and items. It needed to be a creative environment and also welcoming for clients. We stripped the space back to expose a concrete ceiling and simple white walls show off our pieces to their best.

What is involved in a typical day? The studio is open all week and people can drop in and browse through the furniture and samples and chat in an informal setting. We’re very happy to simply order and supply furniture for the client who knows exactly what they want Currently oppulence and luxury but usually we will work with the client to source the perfect is a trend.

  • INTERIOR DESIGN QUARTERLY 26 ISSUE No 5 Who do you admire in the world of design? Textiles are a massive passion of mine and fashion designers like Issey Miyake and Hussein Chalayan are inspirational for their use of fabrics, texture and colour. I also like Florence Broadhurst, she died in the 1970s but her designs were relaunched by Signature Prints in the early naughties; we supply all of her fabrics and rugs. Eileen Gray is another one of my inspirations and I like Paul Kjaerholm for his very honest designs, simple but elegant. Current designers I really admire are Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec. I love their Lozenge rug for Nanimarquina and their new ‘Aim’ light for Flos. What is your most prized interior possession? In 2008 Declan gave me a limited edition George Nelson Pretzel Chair as a Christmas present. Vitra had released a special re-edition in honor of Nelson’s 100th birthday. It is in our bedroom in front of my Stag dressing table. I also love a little art deco style lamp I bought in a market in Ile de Re for €10.

  • INTERIOR DESIGN QUARTERLY What was the driving force behind your career in THE WORLD OF InteriorS? It has been a passion from a very early age. From age three I built miniature interiors (and made sofas from my mother’s cotton wool balls). Later I drew endless floor plans, now I do it for a living. If I have spare time, I flip through magazines and look at available properties on real estate websites. ISSUE No 5 31 Who do you admire when it comes to design? What is your approach WHEN WORKING WITH clients? I like it when an interior is understated, casual and chic. It needs to be comfortable and reflect personality. When working on the One Hyde Park apartment in London I was inspired by the work of French born interior designer Jean-Michel Frank (1895-1941). Marc de Plantier and Dupre Lafon are also designers whom I admire and inspire me. I listen carefully to what they want and have in mind, when they indicate that they need my input then I give it . I have a lot of repeat clients and most of them have good taste. I often know what they want. I love learning from my clients, not only when it comes to interiors but also regarding other matters. They can be a great inspiration.

  • INTERIOR DESIGN QUARTERLY 33 ISSUE No 5 DESIGN PROJECT WARWICK SQAURE
  • INTERIOR DESIGN QUARTERLY What has been your most challenging but rewarding DESIGN project? Probably working in One Hyde Park in London. The building had just been opened and had all kinds of rules and regulations which made it challenging for us but also for the suppliers and workmen. Having worked in most other apartment buildings in London I found the process difficult in comparison. In the end it worked out fine but it took some patience. Your style has been described as "classic meets contemporary", how do you achieve this balance? I think this is a bit dictated by the housing stock that we have in London and other major cities. Often the best properties are in period buildings and that is what we have to work with. To get the most out of these buildings I think it works best to restore the shell to its former glory or even better. In order to keep the interiors fresh and interesting it’s paramount to mix traditional with contemporary design. but also regarding other matters. They can be a great inspiration.

  • INTERIOR DESIGN QUARTERLY 35 ISSUE No 5 Where do you go to find inspiration? I love magazines and buy them from all over the world, digital these days which is fantastic. I also like travelling and look at palaces, castles, museums, etc. I love movies that are set in beautiful interiors, very inspiring. Almodovar does it well. DESIGN PROJECT ONE HYDE PARK

The idea was to create something modern and interesting, but equally not out of keeping with the existing buildings or the landscape around it. The best aspect of the view of Donegal Bay is straight out in front and to the left, so the ocean-facing side house is staggered back and angled to take advantage of this, in effect at an angle. The actual construction of it was very much a father and son project - it took some time to get from drawings to a finished home, but the time spent with my father doing so was invaluable and it wouldn't have happened without him.

As such the polished concrete floors and white walls are offset by things like slightly worn leather oxblood couches, my 2 my grandmothers old folding table, a retro sideboard from eBay, a well worn in teak dining table and various things I've picked up travelling over the years. It is tough to say which is our favourite room but it would probably be our bedroom/ bathroom. The corner window has a sweeping view of the

  • INTERIOR DESIGN QUARTERLY 71 ISSUE No 5 Creative Director Ema Kersuliene FROM emari design talks to ROCO about Her aim ito provide extravagant and flamboyant individualistic interior design. "I was always in love with architecture, but ended up working in corporative business before making the decision to follow my passion and use this experience. I completed my Interior Architecture education in Dublin (Griffith College, which was very fulfilling) before starting Emari Design. Facades, interior spaces and the effect they have on people have always fascinated me. I have to admit, I admire clients with very strong personalities, either having unique taste in interiors or not afraid of leaving their comfort zone, 'change agents', as they call it in the business. I approach my clients projects by listening, listening, listening. I then filter and begin planning. I design from a customer's perspective but using my sharp eyes and experience from previous projects. Communication is the key. If I where to describe my style the closet probably would be the luxurious boutique hotel look. Having said that it's all about the customer, their preferences and bringing their personality into spaces, whether it be a residential or commercial project.
  • INTERIOR DESIGN QUARTERLY When asked, “what is the best piece of advice I can give” I comment, just another "lovely interior" is no longer enough. If you want to change your interior whether neutral or coloured, just make sure you commit 100% either through professional services or doing it yourself. I'm always telling my clients - most of the rooms, especially with neutral schemes can look too flat. It is important to achieve a 3D perspective via (but not limited to) texture and the juxtaposition of your content."

  • INTERIOR DESIGN QUARTERLY Northern irish jewellery designer ruth invites us into her home and studio in france ISSUE No 5 When Northern Ireland designer Ruth moved from Ireland to France, to the little hilltop village of Lacoste in Provence, she came across a box of breathtaking antique ribbon echantillons. Small sumptious treasures, some created over 120 years ago and so began her journey into jewellery design and her own company "Rubanesque". We talk to her about juggling motherhood, work, design and treasures. 75
  • INTERIOR DESIGN QUARTERLY Why did you decide to move to France? My husband is French and so we always dreamed of moving to this little village in the South of France where we were married and just as my oldest was born (in 2009), the economy in Ireland crashed and we just thought it was now or never. We moved in November, arriving to a deserted village in the midst of winter and I remember thinking, this is the biggest mistake ever, but three years on and we have no regrets! How did Rubanesque come about? I've been making jewellery since I was very young, and soon after we moved to France I received a gift of antique silk and ribbons - samples from my husband’s family archives and I challenged myself to make something out of them that was both contemporary and wearable. Who do you admire? Isabel Marant, Coralie Bickford Smith and Confetti System! I love Isabel Marants aesthetic! Confetti Systems installations make me smile & I am an avid collector of Coralie Bickford Smiths book collaborations. ISSUE No 5 76

  • INTERIOR DESIGN QUARTERLY What is your background? As a teenager I dreamed of working in a creative industry and after a film production internship in Chicago, I came home and got an incredible job with Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures (Ireland), where I went on to become Marketing and Publicity Manager and worked on the marketing and publicity campaigns in Ireland for the theatrical releases of Disney, Disney-Pixar, Touchstone Pictures, & Miramax as well as Irish acquisitions. 78 ISSUE No 5 HOW DO YOU BALANCE WORK AND MOTHERHOOD? HAVE YOU A TREASURE AT HOME THAT YOU ADORE? Balancing work & creative time with motherhood is tough. My youngest just turned one and I am still trying to spend as much of my day with her as possible. I have to grab creative time during naps and at weekends when I have help at hand. I do have a lot of favourite paintings but the portrait of my son, which American artist Michael Porten gave me for my 31st birthday, is really my most prized and loved treasure. It hangs above the antique writing desk in our living room. To view and buy these stunning pieces of Jewellery by Ruth visit www.etsy.com/shop/rubanesque

  • INTERIOR DESIGN QUARTERLY 80 ISSUE No 5 ARTIST PATRICK PALMER Patrick Palmer At 40, Patrick left his job in media and decided to pursue his passion in art. He enrolled at Heatherley's School of Art (Chelsea) and later at The National College of Art and Design (Dublin). Describing his work Patrick commented, “Whilst an element of realism is important, I try to move beyond artistic convention and avoid an image that is too predictable. Realism is not enough - what you take away and what you add to what you see are what transform a picture into art. I believe that the viewer wants to see a degree of draughtsmanship from an artist but they deserve more than this. I aspire to make my pictures touch people personally and to be considered works of beauty.”

Talking on where the talented duo get their inspiration, they explained, "we are inspired by bold and uncommon colour combinations, something that makes you stop in your tracks! We love to temper our hand-illustrated botanical patterns, which could be quite traditional, with these striking colour palettes to create something a little different... You never know where you are going to spot a colour combination, it could be in nature, or an acid-bright sweet wrapper on a pavement, but they all filter in to our consciousness and seem to come back out again when we pull together a collection.

  • INTERIOR DESIGN QUARTERLY ISSUE No 5 103 1 PHOTOGRAPH 1 Waring Street Entrance PHOTOGRAPH 2 The Great Room The Merchant Hotel in Waring Street Belfast has long been admired for its distinctive architectural style. Both in its former life as the headquarters of the Ulster Bank and now, in its incarnation as a five star luxury hotel. The hotel has managed to blend harmoniously and in stunning affect, Victorian grandeur with Art Deco inspired sleek modernity. The design is both grand and lavish showcasing the unspolit listed interior, and has been described as "Romantic Parisian, with a touch of Venetian decay."

  • INTERIOR DESIGN QUARTERLY The details throughout the design can be clearly seen with bespoke furnishings, original works of art,
luscious velvets and silks, and specially designed rich wool carpets. The suites all adeptly named after Irish writers, poets and playwrights feature travertine marble bathrooms, free-standing roll top baths, an array of antique furniture, fireplaces and art this is Victorian grandeur at its best. The Art Deco rooms reflect the very best of the period with their sleek and uncompromising style. The rooms feature a number of design classics such as the Eileen Gray Bibendum chair and the Corbusier classic chair. Their use of carrera marble walls in the en-suites and statement turquoise tiling create a pared down yet elegant effect. It is hard to believe that this once opulent hotel was a bank headquarters and that up until 17 years ago tellers sat at their desks. The building still carries on this history and is clearly seen in the simply breathtaking Great Room with its original enameled glass dome and gold painted decoration. At ROCO we adore the design and marriage of periods in this hotel, it is a testament to great design and a true escape, as all great hotels should be. ISSUE No 5 106

  • INTERIOR DESIGN QUARTERLY When it came to Sarah and Conor’s wedding it was always going to be a stylish affair with Sarah being chief stylist with the Irish Tatler and fashion maven. They created a decadent 1920’s deco inspired wedding with plenty of glitz and glamour. ISSUE No 5 Sarah’s dress was from designer Sanyukta Shrestha. Sarah had wanted to create a style that encompassed Daisy Buchanan meets Lady Mary (of Downton Abbey) style, but with a very modern twist. The bridesmaids wore stunning gold sequin wrap gowns by Diane Von Furstenberg, all adding to the glamorous feel of the day. 110 After the couple exchanges their vows at Unitarian Church on St. Stephen’s Green in the heart of Dublin, they walked through the city's winding streets to the eaterie Fallon & Byrne on Exchequer St.

  • INTERIOR DESIGN QUARTERLY Every detail of the day had been carefully thought out to perfection, with Sarah and Conor's personal touches shinning throughout. They hired gold sequin table cloths to continue the golden era look. Florist Mark Grehan arranged the centre pieces, mindful to preserve the feel of a bygone era, with dusty old roses, winterberries and bell jars. 114 ISSUE No 5 Old family heirlooms of the groom’s provided the perfect candlabras. Place names were made using vintage scrabble tiles. Favours where bespoke cookies of the couple’s favourite desserts including eclairs, tirimisu and pavlova. And perhaps one of our favourite ideas - Sarah had her nephews use polaroid cameras to shoot the guests throughout the evening. The boys then attached the photos to string using mini pegs, providing a personal gallery wall. PHOTOGRAPHY Doreen Kilfeather FILM EDITHOUSE
