Arlene McIntyre has built a career out of creating swoon-worthy homes for celebrities like Vogue Williams and Millie Macintosh, and now she's sharing those style tips with RTÉ views in her new show, Designed for Life.
In it, the renowned interior designer takes on six design projects from a range of backgrounds and budgets, from a Victorian apartment to an urban city centre flat, a riverside property to a classic redbrick home and more.
Each episode follows along with the transformation of one property, as McIntyre meets the clients, hears their aspirations and their budget. The series follow the interior design process of creating bespoke solutions for each of the homeowners.
In tonight's episode, Arlene tackles a stunning Victorian home with no less than two reception rooms, which is in dire need of some TLC.
"Episode four brought me back to Dublin," says Arlene. "Here I met Patricia and her daughter Anna and they shared their exquisite period home with me.
"This project involved bringing together a whole new team of experts to not just design, and implement but also restore some elements of the two adjoining reception rooms.
"The first step was to ensure that the space would work harder for the family by designing a new colour scheme that connected the two rooms together.
"The front room was designed with a more classic look in mind.Bespoke sofas in a rich velvet fabric and bullion fringe detail on the bases were especially handcrafted. I also brought in a touch of the style in keeping with Ballyfin Demesne by creating a bespoke oval deep button ottoman also in Velvet, with a bullion fringe.
"The finest joinery available, in the form of bespoke bookcases, a new TV landscape and radiator covers were key in making the newly designed rooms come alive, yet complimenting and giving a nod to the historic era when the house was built.
"Patricia's two existing rugs and two antique armchairs were reused. I introduced richer fuller curtains in a luxurious damask fabric to make a sweeping statement and the wooden floors were stained back into their original deeper tones.
"Two very different colour palettes were expertly painted on these century old walls and ceilings, along with the assembly of two handmade 18 light chandeliers from Italy, which capture the imagination and legacy of this period house perfectly.
"Once all the design, restoration, bespoke craftsmanship and installation took place, I then settled into styling both rooms with luxurious antique lamps, accessories, and most importantly, books - to be devoured in front of the fire."
Judging by the photos in the gallery above, it looks like Arlene gave this classic Victorian home a thoroughly glamorous revamp! Scroll down to shop the look.
