Sinead Kelly HerbertHaving received an honours degree in HRM at the Dublin NCI, Sinead Kelly-Herbert spent the early days of her career in the corporate world. But after a few years Sinead decided to chase her passion for Interior Design and completed her Diploma at the Dublin Institute of Design. Not content with that, Sinead travelled to London to complete a workshop with the world renowned designer Kelly Hoppen.

In 2004 Sinead established her first design studio in Ireland. One of her early projects saw her appearing on the RTE TV Show “Showhouse”, which lead to continuous successful work for property developers and private clients alike.

In 2007, 2008 & 2009 Sinead was the guest interior designer at the Ideal Homes Showhouse, featuring a full house built on the exhibition site & showcased her talents and flair for interiors to the many visitors.

Sinead’s writing talents and love of interior design saw her fitting in a very successful stint of writing a weekly column in the Sunday Independent Property Supplement with over 50 published articles.

In 2009/2010 Sinead was also the Dulux Ireland colour consultant, appearing on TV regularly to promote colour and design.

In 2011, Sinead’s life & business relocated to north London and through hard work and a natural flair for interior design, her studio is now firmly established in London and the Home Counties with an impressive portfolio of projects.

Sinead offers an approachable and completely personalised design service tailored to each property. Sinead’s design philosophy is to take all projects as unique entities. Rather than simply stamp the same style on all, Sinead creates environments relevant for that client and architectural style. Her projects range from ultra modern new build properties to grand Palladian country mansions and everything else in between.

Sinead has worked on our new build project from start to finish over the last 2 years. She has made our life so easy! Every decision was helped with Sinead’s expertise and guidance but we never felt that she was dictating to us.

Sinead is so much more than an interior designer. She certainly does have a real talent and flair for picturing the finished home or room but also helps with some of the practical issues that arise. She has contacts that she suggests for all sorts of things that are needed and she takes responsibility form start to finish. She is totally reliable and trustworthy and makes sure that the whole project goes smoothly and that the finished result is what the client was looking for.

Sinead quickly became familiar with our  wishes and requirements and made sure that she incorporated them into the design. She has accompanied us to bathroom and kitchen designers and also helped with the numerous choices of colours finished and practical requirements.

We couldn’t have made our house into the home it has become without her help!We would have no hesitation in recommending Sinead. She is worth every penny and we are only sorry that her work with us is now almost at an end!

I have worked closely with Sinead for the last 3 years.  She is an incredible designer with a unique flare and incredible eye for detail & colour.

Her project management is second-to-none, I think the bathroom she designed and managed for me is the best I have ever seen. She offers a firm hand with builders but is also respected by them so they are happy to give that little more, and always go that extra mile for her.

Sinead is great to work with as she is patient and puts in a great deal of effort to work out exactly what is you’re are looking for even when you don’t quite know yourself. She has also worked with each of my 4 children who have requested a diverse mix of themes. Anything from obscure hanging bubble chairs, a beautiful pink paradise fit for a princess, a room filled with rugby madness to a look of pure class and elegance. However I think her biggest challenge was to design a new office my very difficult and stubborn husband. Which of course she took in her stride and was just perfect.

I would whole heartedly recommend Sinead for any interior design job you may have and I would be happy to discuss further if required.
