A renovation transformation that will fill you with ideas…
We’re delighted to bring you the fifth episode in this GAFF Tours series! We’ve stepped inside some of the most beautiful and GAFF-worthy homes in Ireland over the last few episodes and we’re thrilled to bring you this penultimate interior insight.
Let us explain what GAFF Tours with So Simple Sofas is all about.
This summer, GAFF along with the team at DFS, gave six lucky homeowners the opportunity to choose their very own dream sofa from the So Simple range. This new range from DFS has been designed to help you find your perfect sofa in three simple steps – choose your style, choose your size, choose your fabric, and you’re done! We then popped round to see each of our homeowners, not only to see their new sofa in situ but to get a first-hand look inside some of Ireland’s most covetable and cool spaces.
Having explored the Victorian home of Darran Heaney (@OldVictorianNew) and taking a trip south to County Cork to visit interior designer Cathy O’Donoghue of Flamingo Interior Design’s pad, uncovering the zen palace of Lucy Bloom, we now invite you to get snooping around fashionista Ella of Siopaella’s super-cool townhouse.
Ella is the proud owner of designer exchange and retail business Siopaella. Hailing from Canada, and having travelled the world, she bought her house in Portobello a decade ago. When her and her partner moved in, it was divided into seven individual bedsits. With an awful lot of work, they restored it to one three story house. This is a huge renovation job and one she’s done so well. Here Ella shares her style inspiration, her best advice and of course how she chose to style her So Simple DFS armchair.
Ella chose the Mya chair and footstool in Indigo Blue from the So Simple Mya range at DFS.
The new DFS So Simple Sofa collection allows you to choose your sofa style, size, colour, and material – making you the creator of your perfect couch. We love the collection because it allows all of us to be creative, to easily choose the sofa we need (no more hours spent trolling showrooms), to do it all online in a few easy steps, and have it delivered between 4-6 weeks. Best of all – it’s really affordable. Sofa prices start from €579, depending on your choices.
It’s been a dream project for us here at Team GAFF not only because we love a good snoop around someone’s home, picking up tips and tricks as we go, but it’s also meant we’ve been able to help our featured homeowners reach their sofa dreams.
