From Our Clients
- As we were moving into a new house it was the perfect opportunity to get some professional advice on a colour theme that would not only look well overall but also progress logically from room to room. Ruth was quickly able to give us definitive recommendations on colours that worked really well for the function of each room but also blended seamlessly from one part of the house to another. She selected just the perfect shade of red for our period dining room and came up with a beautiful combination of three shades for the hallway which I would never have thought of. We are so glad we decided to get expert advice for our new home - highly recommend it if you have the opportunity.Paula Fyans, Dublin 6
- Thank you for the care and attention you and your staff have given to our new home. You made it happen. My husband and I are truly enjoying our newly finished and furnished Holiday Home. I hope you have saved before and after pictures... because no one would believe it was the same place. It is warm , comfortable and elegant just what we had planned . You worked very hard to get just the right touches. Please use inside photos to share the beautiful results.Yvonne Thornton, Chicago & Waterville
- R.K.Designs has managed a number of fit outs for me over the past few months, all of which have been carried out excellently, I have no hesitation in recommending RK Designs to anyone looking for a creative, reliable and professional service.Joe Jackman, Dublin 14
- I had been thinking of redecorating our dining room for some time but just did not know where to start and was reluctant to ask any Interior Designer to take on such a small project. I came across RK Designs eye-catching website, contacted Ruth and everything took off from there. The final result is a room more beautiful than I could have imagined. Ruth's friendly and professional approach would put even the most discerning (and reluctant) first-time client at their ease. I feel I will be seeing her again in the near future.Alison Kinsella, Dublin 6w
- RK Designs did a fantastic job of fitting out 2 apartments for me for rental. The service was excellent and they were the first two apartments to be rented out in the whole block. The rental agent was very impressed and I would highly recommend RK Designs to anyone looking to fit out properties for rental.Gerry Kid, Dublin 2
- We built a 3,500 square foot French style lodge using largely reclaimed materials. We employed Ruth Kennelly to design an interior that followed this ‘old world’ French theme. What I loved about Ruth is the way she really listened turning infantile ideas into practical realties with flair and enthusiasm. Ruth’s experience and contacts saved us so much time, legwork and money. Highly recommended – we’re thrilled with our home.Michelle Moloughney, Clontarf
- Ruth Kennelly designed and managed a complete refurbishment of my house. I trusted her judgement and style, so much so that I handed her the keys and went away on holidays for three weeks!!! And what a result - a fantastic revamp from old to new. I have no hesitation in highly recommending RK Designs to family and friends alike.Clodhna Ferris, Dun Laoghaire
- RK Designs carried out a complete refurbishment of my property including a new kitchen, bathroom, flooring, living room and bedroom. The work was carried out on time and within budget. The consultation process was excellent and the subsequent project management was professional and effective. The workmanship was of an extremely high quality. I received value for money and the result was a fantastic new interior. I would have no hesitation in highly recommending RK Designs in the future.Therese O'Brien, Dublin 6
