Jackie Carton of Carton Interiors was also invited to speak on stage at the DFS Home Theatre hosted by Lorraine Keane on the topic of "Injecting designer style, room by room". Jackie outlined the reasons why homeowners should consider engaging a professional interior designer or interior design architect and how an expert designer brings so much value to the project beyond flair and creativity.

All participating IDI interior designers said participating in the show was worthwhile.


“Thanks so much for the opportunity! It was great to get out and meet some active homeowners. I met so many new clients and gained new business from the IDHS. Visitors came from the four corners of Ireland and I have already received 4 inquiries this week alone. In addition to this, one of the clients I met last October 2021 contacted me one year later for a design consultation.”

Monica Daly, MD Designs


“It was great to be part of Ask an Expert again to support both the IDI and the Dublin Simon Community. The visitors during the Autumn show were there to do business. I met people from all over the country and discussed very interesting projects. I have secured some work and I am following up on more enquiries. It was definitely time well spent. Looking forward to April 2023.”

Angela Connolly, Conbu Interior Design


“It was a great chance to meet genuine people with real interior design projects going on. During the busy session, many commented to me that "Ask An Expert" was the real draw for them and one of the best parts of their Ideal Homes visit. It was nice knowing the donations were for charity, while giving advice to those who sought it."

Deirdre O'Connell, Dtale Interior Design
