Irish designer Aoife Mullane's Wicklow home

Welcome to’s new Look Inside series. It's all about real people's real homes – our favourite part of our home and why we like that particular space so much. Every week, we’ll catch up with Irish creatives to learn about their favourite corner of their house; this week, it’s Aoife Mullane, Irish textiles designer from Wicklow. 

Aoife Mullane is an Irish textiles designer who blends beauty with practicality effortlessly. “I want to create designs that make you feel good every time you see them," she says. "I truly believe my fabrics can enhance your daily life through beauty and function.”
She combines inspiration from nature with her knowledge of textiles (which she obtained through studies at NCAD) and creates bespoke patterns for cushions and lampshades.

“Every square inch of my signature designs have been carefully considered,” Aoife adds. “Gathering inspiration, sketching in my notepad, sampling colours and testing fabrics – these are the many stages in the creative process that get lost in the world of commercial design," she explains.
With such passion and creativity, we wanted to know more about Aoife's taste in interiors. Here she opens up her bedroom which also doubles as an art studio.

"This is my bedroom space – it's at the very top of the house and I have a beautiful view right out over Bray Head. I can see the sun rising every morning," she tells us.
