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.
