Julianne's Colorful Townhouse in Dublin

House Call

Name: Julianne Kelly
Location: Donnybrook - Dublin, Ireland

I am an interior designer who recently has taken over my family business. I live in a townhouse near the city center of Dublin, Ireland. My previous house was all varying shades of creams and now I never want to see that color again! For this house I went for lots of grey with strong vibrant punches of fuschia, chartreuse and purple.I am a big fan of wallpaper as I feel it brings a lot of warmth, depth and texture to a room. I used lots of fabrics and wallpapers from my favorite design houses including Jim Thompson, Manuel Canovas, JAB, Andrew Martin, Designer Guild and Elitis. Oh, and not to forget Missoni.

As my house is small, I wanted each room to flow into the next - for example, the wallpaper in the hall is by Elitis and has a reptile type pattern. This same pattern is how the bathroom suite is finished, albeit in white ceramic. For paintwork I used Zoffany paints and carpets are by Lano.

Thanks, Julianne!
