Make your
in style

As a Cork based interior designer I believe design needs to compliment functionality in a home. I always bear this in mind when creating a new design for a client. The choices that you make when deciding how your home will look will have a documented effect on your emotions and perceptions.

 As an Interior Designer, I understand the process and the importance of creating spaces that enhance wellbeing, that are beautiful, functional and comfortable.

My design concept is simple: a home should be stylish, functional and a comfortable space for you to enjoy. It should be filled with objects and accessories that create a unique atmosphere for you.

I assist customers in preparing their homes or rental properties for the property market by professionally dressing and presenting it to increase interest and to help maximise the financial return.

Deciding to build a new home is a big step. I help customers on this journey by designing modern, comfortable and functional spaces so that new builds can quickly evolve into cherished and well-loved homes.

Are you thinking about renovating your home, or are you in the process of having it renovated? If you have fears about making Interior Design decisions I can work with you.

Did you know colour is visible energy

I provide colour consultations for spaces, furniture and decoration in your home or office. I have studied colour psychology so I know what works!

Discuss your vision with Maura Mackey Design, I know how to bring it to life. Are you thinking about renovating your tired commercial space into a modern contemporary designed space…if so I can help.

I have an emerging speciality in biophilic design. This is an interior design philosophy which I use in order to bring more of the outside world in, ensuring a higher level of well- being for my clients.

I use this philosophy in both my residential and commercial projects – biophilic design improve’s the indoor air quality, boost’s occupant mood and productivity whilst reducing stress levels.

Nature,  sustainability  and  wellness  are the essence of Biophilic design.
