Any business that isn’t on Twitter is doing itself a major disservice. Just Sayin’.
I have discovered Interior Design Stores, café’s, restaurants, hotels…and much much more. Or rather, to be honest, they discover me a lot of the time. One such spot that found me is Peacockgreen – they have 5 different locations but the Merrion Road branch is on the way out to visit my Mum so after they had started to follow me on Twitter & I liked their style, on a dramatically revolting day in Dublin a few weekends ago; I decided to pop in for a wee visit.
I knew that I couldn’t sit in as I was visiting my Mum but it took all my might not to! It was so welcoming + beautiful. As you walk in, you are greeted by the coffee area to your left + treats to your right. I’ve been attempting following the Paleo way of life for just about 2 years now, and they have Paleo treats {Yay!} but this day, oh man, you shoulda seen it…was a ‘full-blown-paleo-what-paleo?’ day. I chose the most amazing red velvet brownie & yummy coffee. Sorry no photo’s, peeps: you’ll have to use your imagination!
But, the cutest thing, to be honest was that when the waiter saw me ‘oohing + ahhing’ at the selection of different wallpapers used, the Interiors + details; he asked would I like to see upstairs. It seemed to be closed at that particular
time but he showed me around graciously. He explained that the House was originally ‘The Priest’s House’ and they have been sympathetic to this and have also described each room {with wall decal/painted word, I’m not sure} as their original use i.e. The picture seen here of the 1st Gallery Wall is in what would have been the Priest’s bedroom}. He also told me that the owner was an Interior Designer named Darren and to be honest, I kinda knew that it had the ‘Interior Designer Touch’. So, have a peek. Decide for yourselves. And marvel in the details + bravery of some of the choices {particularly wallpaper choices: not for the fainthearted!}

…and if this wasn’t already enough, the attention to detail was kept even at the coffee dock…

As I went reluctantly outside in the torrential rain and awful wind of that Sunday, I took one last snap of the gorgeous Tiling at the entrance with the Metro Tiles of the Coffee Station I mentioned – showcasing that bravery of Design: White Metro Tiles could have easily been used here + would have been nice but, this beautiful colour compliments what look like original tiling underfoot

I’ll be back. And this time, I’m cosying up in one of those rooms awhile…
