I can’t recommend Hepburn Designs highly enough. Deirdre understood what I was trying to achieve and helped me to realise it. The fantastic thing about Deirdre is that she is very practical and was happy to work with the furniture we already had. On her advice we moved furniture to different places around the house to great effect and only had to buy soft furnishings and other small items. Deirdre also took account of my budget when selecting these items. As a result, we achieved a major transformation for a relatively low cost. On a personal level, Deirdre is a lovely lady and very easy to get along with. Highly recommended!

“What It Is”

Online Interior Designer, also called Virtual Design or E Design, is a master plan for creating a professional interior design that you implement at your own pace from any location in the world.  Interior Designer in Dublin, Ireland, Ibiza, Spain and Worldwide.

A Professional Experienced Eye

Based on my years of experience and special skill set as an Interior Designer,  I am now offering clients the same level of expertise working remotely on the interior design of their homes and businesses.  I have designed for hundreds of clients over the years who required budget options or fast and easy solutions that were tailored to them.

Flow and Function

I will personally design every element of your space, no junior designers here.  A space that flows, is comfortable, stylish and practical and suits your style, your budget and your lifestyle. 

At Home In Your Own Time

You don’t have to spend every weekend going from furniture shop to furniture shop or endless hours shopping online. Get the overall plan and implement as time and budget allow.

Fast and Affordable

You feel you need a professional eye on it but you worry about the cost of an interior designer and a long term commitment.  You want to avoid the potentially costly mistakes if you go it alone. You want this quickly, easily, affordably with no stress or fuss, and for a flat fee.

‘How it Works’

I will guide you through my easy to follow design process, step by step.  I will be there with you from start to finish to ensure you a fabulous result!!

We Begin With A Phone Call...

We start with an initial phone consultation and discuss the design challenges that need to be resolved.  I will go through a style questionnaire with you to get an understanding of your style, lifestyle, budget etc.. We will also determine which of your existing pieces we can incorporate into the design.  I can answer any of your questions about how the online service works.  Click here to book a phone call with me.

The Design Process Starts....

As a result of our conversation about your style, budget and time frame I will begin the process of designing your rooms.  We will work together through a secure design portal where you can review all of the design elements and all our communication is kept in one place.  I will send you design boards with several options for your space that will include images and details of each item.  You can then easily leave feedback next to each item or simply accept or reject it.  As each element is selected it will be added to the design board so you can see how everything works seamlessly together.  As I am creating your room design I will be simultaneously creating 3D drawings, floor plans and detailed layouts. BOOK A CALL WITH ME


I provide you with a full and comprehensive shopping list with links to all the items in one place making the shopping experience very easy.   Whether you are a try before you buy or click and pay shopper or a combination of both your items will be selected with this criteria in mind.  I am not tied to any supplier and will select from the retailers that best suit you, including IKEA.   Want something more bespoke?   I also offer custom designed and built furniture, cabinetry and window dressings.  Of course I have preferred trades people and suppliers that I have worked with and I am happy to recommend.  BOOK A CALL WITH ME

The Finished Result.....

No need to guess the positioning of your new and existing items, I provide you with a to scale floor plan and elevations with the size and placement of each item. Detailed Room Guides & Back up support This includes the small details like the exact height and placement of artwork.  Backup Support via email and video-conferencing.  I am dedicated to offering you outstanding customer support and service.  We will correspond by email throughout the process and I will send you all the details you need in writing.  If, however, at any stage of the process you need additional phone or video support to clarify anything or just give you that extra level of comfort I am here for you.  BOOK A CALL WITH ME NOW.

Deirdre helped us with the re-furbishment of a 2 bed apartment in Dublin that had been rented for over 10 years previously and was in a pretty bad state in need of a total refurbishment (bathroom, kitchen, floors, wardrobes etc).

Our experience working virtually on this project was nothing short of Excellent!

Thanks to the advances in technology, we were able to exchange floor plans and photos while we agreed our requirements. Deirdre provided a detailed specification broken down by item and room which had links to various websites where we could source the goods online.

What we achieved, thanks to Deirdre far exceeded our expectations. Through Deirdre’s choice of colouring and modern furniture, fittings and soft furnishings we got the look we were really looking for. If you need a top quality interior design experience I recommend you use Deirdre.

Deirdre’s online interior designer service was absolutely perfect for us. Our living room needed a complete overhaul and with Deirdre available to us online, it allowed us the time we needed to process her ideas and suggestions. Being able to share ideas online with links to style boards and products worked really well for us and she was also very responsive and available to us when we needed to make quick decisions. 

Deirdre really listens and was very respectful of our tastes and the personal requirements with a young family. She really showed her magic with suggesting some very daring pieces that we would never have had the courage to buy if we were left to our own devices!   We are absolutely thrilled with the results and will definitely use Deirdre’s services again and again.
