Rory Kelly / Interior Designer

Rory Kelly / Interior Designer

The Dublin-based interior designer Rory Kelly is a man on a mission – to make your home the very best it can be. From a simple window dressing to an entire house refurbishment, a colour consultation to a brand new build.

Coming from a family whose business is Ireland’s largest manufacturer of window blinds, it is hardly surprising that Rory would choose interiors as his calling.

After a change in career in 2006, with a spell spent at Bushfield Interiors while studying at the Dublin Institute for Design, Rory went on to establish Rory Kelly Interiors in 2008. With a core team of excellent craftsmen and fitters who make bespoke curtains, soft furnishings, handmade furniture to order and provide a comprehensive index of essential skills and intricate techniques, Rory Kelly Interiors offers a complete service – design, supply and fit.

Rory has an instinctive eye for colour, and a love for good design. Every element and product in a Rory Kelly Interiors design is chosen to suit the user not just for its aesthetic, but in terms of comfort, value, durability and functionality too.

Not only did Ian design an extremely functional and aesthetically pleasing extension, but he also expertly managed the project from start to finish, saving us a lot of time and energy.
