My personal style is comfortable, well-made, timeless utility pieces. I live in the countryside which is wet most of the time. For me, tweed works well in the autumn and winter and linen in the spring and summer. I wear jeans year round.

My interior style is home from home old-school country house shabby chic.

The last thing I bought and loved was a Barbie & Ken doll. I had just seen the new Barbie movie and loved it. We have been making TikTok videos with them at Ballyvolane House. Huge fun.
