Meet The Designer
Ciara Thumath

What is your background?  

After working in admin for some time, I knew it wasn’t for me.  I changed direction and went in pursuit of a creative career. I’m currently finishing my diploma in Interior Design 

What made you want to get into interior design? 

I have always been creative, I used to spend hours on Pinterest and Instagram looking at amazing designs and houses and just loved the feeling it gave me of excitement and satisfaction, so I decided I wanted to recreate those feelings.  

What do you love about your job? 

I love assisting people in creating dream homes, I genuinely get excited when I can see how happy clients are with their choices.  

What tile designs really get your heart racing? 

Earthy and textured looks like a clay tile or terracotta. 

What’s the most common question you get asked during a selection? 

“What do other people choose?”. It’s so great to be able to help my clients discover their own styles 

What product trends are you seeing when it comes to tile and flooring? 

I feel like everyone is going back to basics, using timeless colours and patterns. 

What colour trends are you seeing when it comes to tile and flooring? 

A lot of neutral and timeless colours, whites, greys and beiges.  

If you could makeover your own kitchen, what would it look like? 

Mixture of white and timer cabinetry with a white bench top and a bold splashback and lots of earthy tones.
