Interior designer Trevor Perrott’s belief in the importance of “finishing touches” has led him to open his own exclusive store in Clonakilty. Inspired by phrases such as “there is no place like home” and “home is where the heart is”, Trevor decided to name his store ‘Home Living Interiors’. Packed with beautiful Object d’Art, occasional furniture, mirrors, framed wall art, lamps and soft furnishings, this store’s range of products promises timeless quality, style and sophistication for modern home living.

“A beautiful room is a like a work of art,” says Trevor. “It is a collection of elements; colour, fabrics, lighting, furniture and other objects work together to create a desired atmosphere. Whilst every element is important, it is impossible to create a finished room without the right objects.”

Trevor has been designing interiors in West Cork homes for over five years; with fewer new builds these days he specialises in helping clients to work with what they have to achieve stunning new looks.

“Of course new colour schemes and window dressings create a wow factor but also, by simply repositioning furniture that is in the wrong spot or pictures that are not at the right level, you can transform a space without having to throw out treasured possessions.

“Sometimes however you do need to source special items to really tie a design together and I was struggling to find the objects I needed. I realised others must too and that led me to open this store, which stocks a variety of beautiful console tables, lamps, mirrors, pictures, chairs etc.”

Trevor opened his store at his home in Gullane, Clonakilty, next door to his father Sidney’s well-known garden machinery business. This has the great advantage in that Trevor is not under pressure to stock just the latest fashions that will move quickly off the shop floor. “I have unique one-off pieces in all styles, with many classics that my customers really appreciate,” says Trevor.

If customers don’t find what they are looking for in stock, they are welcome to sit down and browse through catalogues to find exactly what they are looking for, which can then be ordered. Because Trevor deals mostly with Irish suppliers, orders arrive in quickly and are always of the highest quality of design and materials.

Home Living Interiors is open Monday to Saturday from 9-6pm (closed for lunch 1-2pm). Feel free to call, browse, relax and be inspired in its no pressure sales environment or for an appointment call Trevor on 086 2420602.

Trevor‘s interior design consultancy ‘Trevor Perrott Design’ continues to grow steadily and now covers from Bantry to beyond Cork City. Trevor is available by appointment at his studio or to make house calls for advice on colour choices, spacial planning, paint and wall finishes, floor coverings, curtain choices for window dressings, lighting, furniture choices and more. Now with a vast array of interior products stocked and available to source from his store, Trevor can cater for all needs and tastes, adding character and personality to any home whilst also offering exceptional value. Trevor will also be launching his own website very shortly.

The Cast of Harold Pinter’s ‘No Man’s Land’ are on their way to the All-Ireland finals, having won 26 awards, including five best of Festivals, at the Amateur Drama League of Ireland annual three act festivals. The play ‘No Man’s Land, by Harold Pinter, the Nobel Prize Winning Author is directed by Jennifer Williams.

One last opportunity to view this multi award winning play at Skibbereen Town Hall, on Saturday 14th of April, before the finals.

Having met by chance in a pub, two aging writers continue a long night of drinking and reminiscing in a stately London home. As the night wears on, their conversation wanders through memories long forgotten or invented. Is their encounter real or a delusion? Are they strangers or do they share a past history? When unexpected guests intrude upon an increasingly surreal evening, the atmosphere quickly changes from friendly to threatening, and the encounter becomes a game of survival.

Tickets may be purchased at the door or in advance by emailing schulldramagroup@gmail.com
