Much as I love print, it can be tough not being able to share what I’m working on on the blog. It’s particularly hard right now, as so much of what I’m doing is for Christmas editions (I know, sorry). It’s been a busy couple of weeks, so I thought I would post a quick update with some of the fun projects I’ve been involved in.
- The Sunday Independent have a new property supplement, edited by the brilliant Fran Power, and I’m contributing weekly trend pieces. My mammy was very proud to see me on the front of the supplement the Sunday before last. I loved being able to champion Irish prints from the likes of Irish Design Shop, Damn Fine Print and April and the Bear in that piece, and to talk about some of my favourite decor trends, including, in yesterday’s paper, marble.
- I’m in an app! Yep, not words I type every day. But a few months ago, I was asked to contribute my suggestions for Design Island, the app that the ID2015 team was working on. Created to help you “navigate the design delights of Ireland”, the ID2015 gang asked a panel of experts from the design community to nominate their top locations around the country to share the best design in Ireland. Again, it was wonderful to get to get to wax lyrical about some my favourite places. Download the app here (iOS) and here (Android).
- I’m still penning my monthly tech column for Image magazine. This month, I’m falling in love with cute stuff from Hippenings and have a quick Q&A with none other than blogging super lady Emily of From China Village.
- Earlier this year, I got to go on two fun adventures. One to meet food legend Ferran Adrià, and the other to test out the new Dublin-New York business class cabins from Aer Lingus. Read about my Willy Wonka experience with Adrià here, and my wi-fi in the sky adventure here.
Phew! It’s no wonder I have tendency to fall asleep on the couch at 10pm on a Friday night (rock and roll).
