I used Deirdre’s Designer for a Day Service for the second time recently to work through a couple of interior design topics (lighting throughout the house, storage solution for a walk in wardrobe, design for a living space etc.). We also mapped out the next steps to completing the items and she provided some very useful contacts of reliable trades people. Working with Deirdre was very productive, as she never pushed only her ideas while we discussed different options, so I am very happy with the plan of action we worked out. Deirdre arrived on time, provided me with very useful notes on the results of the day, kicked off the first steps to getting the chosen solution implemented and enabled me to take over the running of the implementation project very easily. Exactly what I wanted! More...

I really enjoyed my designer for a day experience. I would highly recommend Deirdre to anyone planning a renovation. I went from having a vague idea of what I wanted, to having plans for my new kitchen that I can share with my builder. I loved Deirdre’s ideas for the space and the decor. Having spent the day with Deirdre i feel equipped to get started on the renovation, confident that the choices we made together are right. Lastly I would mention that Deirdre is really easy to work with, the time flew by and was so enjoyable. More...

Deirdre 's " designer for a day" is a superb service. Deirdre builds on what you have, helps sense check your ideas and adds a new perspective from her vast experience. She helped us to look at the space differently and provided detailed floor plans for our kitchen extension. I am sure we will use Deirdre again once we kick off the project. She is also a pleasure to work with. More...

Deirdre's designer for a day service was absolutely fantastic. We are completing a remodel and house extension. We weren't particularly happy with the existing plans and my brains was completely frazzled from sleep deprivation having recently had a baby. Deirdre immediately spotted issues with the existing plans and 'rescued' us from some very expensive mistakes. She very quickly grasped what were trying to achieve and what our style was. She went through the house room by room and decisions which would have taken me days or even weeks she helped us make in minutes. Her work pace is unbelievable! She was extremely knowledgeable and professional and had a large range of samples to view on the day which really helped with decision making. It was particularly helpful that she promptly emailed a typed copy of all the design suggestions from the day along with a list of trusted trades people. Her friendly easy going approach made the day a real pleasure. She has an obvious passion for her work and helping people achieve their ideal home. More...

Deirdre provided us with the "Designer for a day" service as part of our extension project. It was a very enjoyable day, extremely practical advice, and we felt we got real value from the consultation. We would have no hesitation in recommending this service for anyone. Well worth thinking about at an early stage in the project, ideally long before the first fix. More...

Very positive experience with Deirdre. Lots of great ideas all within budget. Deirdre was available afterward for questions. Looking forward to making the design a reality.... More...

We hired Deirdre as we needed our house re-wired and totally re decorated. We had a few problem areas and she was a great help in giving us ideas on how to make things work better for us. She went through the house room by room advising us on lighting options, furniture placement, colour schemes etc. She was a really nice person to work with and had great knowledge of web sites for furniture, paint, lighting etc. Deirdre e mailed the plan she had worked out with us along with the names of trades people which we could contact. We enjoyed our day very much and would highly recommend her to anyone. More...

I used Deirdre's designer for a day service and it was exactly what i needed! She talked through all my existing ideas and we decided what would work or not, and she had some great design solutions to some problem areas in the house. I would definitely work with Deirdre again in the future. More...

I really enjoyed my designer for a day experience with Deirdre! It was more than inspiration, it was an education as I now feel like I have some of the tools to help me finalise the designs we discussed on the day. Great ideas, listens carefully, picks up cues to inspire the design ideas so it feels familiar, good range of budgets catered for, full details of stockists and lots of trades people to recommend. I would highly recommend! I only wish it could have been longer! More...

I was very happy with the quality of photos, turn around time and professionalism of Deurbanic. I will certainly use them again and would highly recommend them.
