Are you an interior design addict? Love a bit of DIY? Your friends know you as the ultimate decorista? You’d give your family/friends/pet a lick of paint if they sat still long enough?

You’re in the right place! Here’s your sister πŸ˜ƒ

My name is Ciara Rees. I am an interior designer and upholsterer and I love to share inspiring interiors, expert design advicetop decor trends and doable DIYs.

For a little over a year, himself and I have been renovating a country cottage in Inch, Co. Wexford. With a teeny, tiny budget and even less spare time to work on it, I’ve been keeping everyone up to date over here.

A little bit of history…

After studying for my HND in Interior Design and working in the industry since 2007, I finally took the leap and started my own business in 2013. Rees Design specialises in Upholstery and Interior Design. My two greatest loves!


Then in February 2014 I started this blog. In fairness I only published a handful of posts until July, when I feel I found my feet in the blogging world. Since then I even been nominated for some blog awards! (I know! Crazy!! πŸ™‚ ) Before I began the Rees Design blog I loved browsing through other blogs. Particularly those focusing on interior design, crafting, DIY, that kind of thing. Although I still felt there was a little bit of room left for me.

I want my blog to share practical advice on how to style and design your home. I love to include inspirational images, a bit of DIY and stuff that just tickles my fancy! If there are topics I haven’t covered and you think I might be able to help please let me know on reesdesign@hotmail.com . Also send images over if you’ve tried anything from the posts. I’m nosey like that πŸ˜‰

Just a few little things! Any product I have featured in my blog is because I love it and not because I’m being asked to say so. Regarding images on the blog, I have tried to state the original owner/artist. If you own any of the images and I have incorrectly attributed them to someone else or you would prefer if it was removed please email me reesdesign@hotmail.com

    Well done on starting out on your own. That’s a giant leap isn’t it? I wish you all the luck and success.
    Thanks for visiting my blog and the follow. I like the look of your blog and look forward to seeing more.


  2. Hi there, I just found your blog. I’m in Minnesota now, but originally from Wexford. I work full time, but I’m also a vendor at a store called Salvaged With Style. I have my own little facebook page called Needles & Nails. I am constantly thinking about the next repurposing project! Really like your blog.
