Best of Houzz
Don’t just take our word for it. Please look !
On February 4, 2014 – Grania Murray was awarded “Best Of Houzz” for Customer Satisfaction by Houzz, the leading platform for home remodelling and design. The International Interior Design Firm was chosen from the voters within the 16 million monthly users that comprise the Houzz community. Good Design makes Life more efficient.
After successful careers in Advanced Computer Programming and Banking and Quality Facilitation, Grania was swept into the field of professional interior design after a renowned magazine publisher was shown her work on her own home. Since then, Grania has managed projects on many international Five Star properties and, most recently, worked with HBA/Hirsch Bedner Associates — the world’s number one hospitality design firm, specializing in hotels, resorts and spas. Grania managed project deadlines for the newest Wynn Hotel, ‘The Palace’, set to open in Cotai, China in 2016. Grania has shared her unique flair for design with the public by having her work published internationally; guest hosting on a number of radio programs; performing as a popular public speaker and hosting her own design show on national television in Ireland. Grania’s dynamic decoration style, with its uncomplicated aesthetic, is inspirational because she can show you how living with less, can offer so much more. The story of her rooms is always about the flow and usually about textures and little if any pattern, supported by clean lines, natural color tones and tons of light. Grania believes that good design makes a space not only look good but feel good too. She’s sure that it makes the client’s life easier, satisfies their soul and endures over time. Notable mentions include the Cellar Bar at The Merrion Hotel in Dublin. Event rooms at Leopardstown Race Course, the Irish offices of Pierce Brosnan’s media company Post 22 and a Rancho Santa Fe project for Andre Agassi and Steffi Graf.

The firm is a member of the USGBC and operates best practices that offer sustainable integrated strategies for green residential remodelling.
Our goal is to reduce the environmental impacts of remodelling and reduce energy, water, and materials consumption, waste generation, and harmful emissions, both indoors and out. We fully appreciate how to optimise form and function while minimising environmental impact and how to strike a balance between aesthetics, utility and resource efficiency. Good Design Inspires.

“I have led a life of adventure. Experiences that have taught me so much and yet I enjoy challenges and am deeply sensitive to the needs of others, before they even know they need to be sensitive to them, themselves. I translate my love of Interiors into building homes that not only work for people now, but in the future. I appreciate and acknowledge the deep lessons we get from life and through my work creating spaces, make them into something beautiful to be enjoyed by everyone.”
