South American born Malini lives in the family home that she grew up in in  Foxrock. The house itself has not been redecorated since Malini was little, so she needs the designers help in finding her confidence when it comes to knowing what styles or look she really wants for her home. Keen for a fresh start, Malini is desperate to give her home a facelift.

A slave to beige, the designers are keen for Malini to express her vibrant personality in her home, and teach her how accessorizing with colour can be an easy safe first step.

Designing with the two young children in mind, the designers create some clever storage solutions for the family, and by zoning the layout of the new open plan rooms they give Malini a transforming space which can be a playroom or an office.

Budget: €32,000

Rooms: Kitchen, dining room and office / playroom

Main themes: Finding ways to show your personality in your home, child friendly design and open plan living for a young family.
