Renovating a Period Property with Aisling Kirwan - Colourtrend Paints

July 29, 2022 2 min read

In this episode of our Colourtrend In Conversation With series, we sat down with Aisling Kirwan, Interior Designer and Owner of Lilac and Moss, to chat about where to start when renovating a period property. Aisling has found the perfect balance between restoring her stunning 1780's farmhouse and adding her own personal style and flare.

Aisling describes her style as quite eclectic, she loves to combine colours and patterns in unique ways as well as mixing old with new. Take a look at our full conversation with Aisling in our video below, where we find out where to start when renovating a period property and how to use colour to give your period home a contemporary twist.

Check out some of the fabulous shades mentioned throughout this video:

  • Covert Feather, a subdued hue with a blend of brown and grey undertones. A perfect neutral that will create warmth in a scheme.
  • Iced Float, a warm pink merging delicate blush softness and subtle auburn hues.
  • Inkwell, a classic navy blue, with hints of magenta undertones, good with warmer blues or darker neutral whites and golds.

You can find Ailsing on Instagram @mylimestonehome. Take a look through Aisling's page and prepare to be amazed by her stunning use of colour throughout her family home.
