Hi, my name is Aoife and I’m an Interior Architect and the Founder of Style So Simple. I like to think of myself as an entrepreneur who is trying to change the idea that having an interior designer means a hefty price tag.
I split my time between Dublin, Kerry and Madrid.
I received my honours degree in Interior Architecture and Design from Teesside University in the UK and I’m excited to bring a wealth of experience from a multifaceted background. After earning my degree I moved back to Dublin at a challenging time for the construction industry. This did not deter me as I had a very clear vision of what I wanted for my future career, I wanted an interior design business of my own someday. With that in mind, I needed to get some hands on experience both in residential design and also commercial.
My career started with Arnott’s in their Home Section and I also got the opportunity to work with the fantastic kitchen design company, The Design Yard. Both gave me a wealth of knowledge about what residential clients in Ireland are looking for.
To get my commercial experience I started working for a global corporation fit out company. This was great as the company was a fast paced environment, forcing me to adapt, to think on my feet, and learn how to create designs that were suitable for different clients with different tastes. With my commercial design experience growing I jumped from a Junior Interior Architect to Senior Interior Architect in less than three years.
When I felt I had gained the experience I needed I decided to start my own design business. Style So Simple was born!
