Luttrellstown Castle , Phase two
While a castle may inspire a sense of jaw-dropping-wonder in most people, for an interiors designer the sheer awe is incalculable. To plan out the rooms of a one-time fortress, to find pieces worthy of the centuries-old antiques, to carefully gild and polish old-world luxury is, quite simply, every designer’s dream. And really, it has been a dream for us to work on Luttrellstown Castle, gently coaxing this gothic behemoth into the 21st Century. During our first phase of renovations, we gave six bedrooms a once over with our signature style. The second phase was more far-ranging and involved sprucing up some of the ornate reception rooms.
