A new interior design service is available to those in Ballinasloe looking to spruce up their home-décor through H.C. Interior Design, offering a variety of tastes to suit your household needs.
The designer Hani Colohan, originally from Israel, has been living in Ballinasloe for the past two decades. She worked for 18 years as a primary school teacher but always taken an interest in art, fashion, drawing or anything creative related. Her first projects in home decoration included a revamp of her own house, as well as furnishing the rooms of her friends and families. Realizing her calling, she went go back to college studying at the Interior Design Academy of Ireland in Dublin.
Hani is married and has three beautiful children. Her husband, Adrian, acted as a main source of inspiration for the artist on her path. “I would like to thank my dear husband who supported and believed in me all the way to make my dream reality, it wouldn’t be possible without him” she stressed.
In May 2022, she formally opened her new business titled H.C. Interior Design. The studio offers the latest designs inspired by her home country, with bespoke wallpapers, paint and lighting imported from Israel.
Hani has travelled the world to find the best materials and ideas for her studio as well as for various assignments, with her primary client bases being located in Ireland, England and Israel. Currently her most significant project is the redesign of a lobby and 14 apartments in Worthing, West Sussex for London company A&S Refurbishments Ltd.
Within Ballinasloe, the busy creative finds it important to support other small businesses, incorporating some of her designs with Keller’s Furniture Shop in town. Hani has already redesigned the living room of Lauren Kildea’s home of LMK Beauty Salon on Society Street, and will be collaborating on an upcoming project with Niall and Melissa at Croffy ‘s Launderette. Hani acknowledged both businesses sharing: “I’m very grateful for the amazing support I am receiving from the town I live in”.
A drop-in on site is essential for the Designer to get an understanding of the home and atmosphere she would like to create. Before her arrival, a client should typically share their goals and ideas for their house. Appartment or space- share how they live in their residence, determine any specific needs, likes or dislikes, establish who are the major decision-makers in the household for the final presentation meeting, and lastly determine a budget.
Once an agreement on a project is settled, a fee will be arranged with the visits included. If not settled, a fee for her time is typically charged by the hour.
Her studio works Monday to Fridays between the hours of 15:00 to 19:00. Anyone can get in contact by messaging her Facebook or Instagram at Hani Colohan/hani_colohan.
