ABOUT MAURA

Hi, I’m Maura Mackey, founder of Maura Mackey Design.

I am an Interior Design professional with an eye for detail. I thrive on giving any house the ‘showhouse’ feel when designing or when up for sale or rental from a home staging point of view. I work with residential and commercial spaces and turn them into modern contemporary designs

I believe a design needs to compliment functionality in a home.  I always bear this in mind when creating a new design for a client. Believe it or not, the choices that you make when deciding how your home will look will have a documented effect on your emotions and perceptions. 

Embedded in my ethos is a timeless yet classic modern/contemporary approach, with an emphasis on attention to detail, luxurious practicality and a considered aesthetic that evokes an emotional response. I am an interior designer known for outstanding service and my ability to work to all budgets, while not neglecting design concept and delivery

By changing the way people feel about their environment, ultimately it can change the way they feel about themselves. My clients are the most integral part of my journey!

WORKING WITH ME

My personality allows me to connect with people. I strategically source best quality interior items for projects because of my knowledge and background. I have a great rapport with interior suppliers and I know where to get the best value for your money.

My experience to date coupled with my love of interiors have provided me with a unique understanding of and appreciation for the latest design trends. If you are building a new home, doing a renovation, upstyling a room/rooms in your home or selling your home I am here to help. My eye for detail and passion for interiors will guide you to create a beautifully designed and functional space.

I also help with new builds from a practical & design point of view, there is nothing more daunting for a couple than not knowing what steps to take to get the home of their dreams. I also stage homes for sale – this can ensure an extra 7-11% value on your property when up for sale.

SOMETHING WE NEVER COULD HAVE ACHIEVED ON OUR OWN

Before we put our house on the market, we decided to try home staging to give the house a fresh look.  Maura completely exceeded our expectations when she staged our house!  She was able to use our existing furniture and bring in new accessories to completely transform the look of the house.  Maura has an excellent eye and sense of colour, she was able to identify which pieces would work where, and was able to really bring out the best areas of the house.  She was able to even bring to life pieces we already owned but would otherwise have overlooked.  We are so impressed with the end result, it was something we could never have achieved on our own.  Working with Maura was an absolute pleasure from start to finish, I would recommend anyone who is putting their house on the market to go try house staging.  Thanks Maura!

A GREAT EXPERIENCE

Working with Maura Mackey in the design of my yoga studio has been a great virtual experience. From minute one, Maura understood what I was looking for and worked with me helping me to bring the feeling  and look of calmness and flow I wanted in my yoga studio. Her approach and ideas made the process very easy and it was all within my budget and in the time agreed. Thanks a lot Maura

A SOLUTION PROVIDER

I was delighted to have Maura Mackey Design on board for my new-build project. Investing in Maura’s service saved me time and costly mistakes – she was skilled at interpreting my ideas while remaining budget-conscious at all times. Her passion for interiors was obvious and she delighted in being a solution provider for all my requirements. She also had a list of skilled people and interior products to hand, to bring the finished look together. I highly recommend Maura’s “easy to work with” manner.
