They say it’s a long way to Tipperary, but Lisa McGee knows it’s even further when your base has been the Big Apple. Lisa swapped the bustle of one of the world’s most happening cities for the rural life in Nenagh, homeplace of her husband James.

We were looking for a change of pace after the frenzy of New York - says Lisa, who as a former editor and magazine stylist, is no stranger to beautiful surrounds

Over the years I’ve read lots of interior magazine and kept plenty of tear sheets, storing up all of these ideas until we bought our first house. I had to put everything together very quickly, since we arrived in Ireland just four weeks before our shipping container arrived

My poor husband was sick of white high gloss paint by the time we were done! Luckily he trusted my decorating decisions and he’s very happy with the results.
