Real home tour: a little extra from a gorgeous house in Ranelagh

By Anna Shelswell-White 03-05-2016

For those of you who've caught up with the latest issue of House and Home and spotted this beautiful house in Ranelagh, we think you'll agree that it's a minimalist lover's dream home. For many of us it's back to reality after the long weekend, but that doesn't mean the daydreaming and inspiration should stop there. With an impressive kitchen and a whole host of other fabulous design elements, throughout the house, we thought we'd share some extra shots with you today.


We're big fans of how the detailing around the fireplace and on the ceiling have been merged with the sleekness and minimal accessorising. Amazingly, both of the house’s fireplaces were finds (you can spot the other in the master bedroom). Floating shelves are a great alternative to hanging art.


The cushion brings an unexpected element of fun to a grey armchair in the sitting room.


The custom-built kitchen, designed and fitted by Cillían Johnston Cabinet Makers, is a combination of oak (lower) and glass-fronted grey cabinetry (upper). To accommodate the chimney breast, the cabinets were built in varying depths. At the end of the row (as seen below) two-door, full-length cabinets disguise the fridge and utility closet.


The glass cabinets show off Sean and Sinéad's colourful crockery while the large serving board from Industry leans behind the cooker, breaking up the white space.


The Jenson oak dining table is from trendy online store, We love how the kitchen and dining area provides the perfect space for uncluttered and seamless entertaining.

Through the clever use of colours that make us think of summer, even on a wet day, this outdoor area is fresh, bright and welcoming.


An inspired wardrobe alternative, the piping used for hanging clothes is picked up by the antique brass bed and gold picture frame.

A collection of succulents line up against the white metro tiling in the bathroom. We love their varying heights, well-thought-out sequence and the addition of an odd-one-out.
