House and Home Interior Influence Award 2019: Interior Designer Award

Congratulations to Kingston Lafferty Design Creative Director, Róisín Lafferty, on winning the Interior Designer Award at the inaugural House and Home Magazine Interior Influence Awards 2019.


KLD Creative Director Róisín Lafferty


For the first time ever, House and Home decided to recognise the achievements of the burgeoning Irish interior Instagram and social media community with the inaugural House and Home Interior Influence Awards in association with DFS. Nurtured by House and Home magazine since the inception of their daily follow hashtag, #MyHouseAndHome in September 2017, the community has blossomed into a vibrant, digital creative hub, and they decided now was a great time to celebrate that innovation, spirit and colour.

The event took place at the Alex Hotel last Wednesday 6 November with a room full of interiors experts and influencers in attendance.

As she was called to pick up her award, emcee Kirstie McDermott of House and Home Magazine described the winner (Róisín) :


“they are the best in the country, they editorialise their feed, they care about their projects and the content they share. They have a beautiful feed and are head and shoulders above the rest. They are producing next-level interiors.”

A fantastic honour, thanks to all who nominated Róisín and to all the judges for the amazing praise. Congratulations Róisín on a well-deserved win. Here is a look at the moment Róisín won:


It was of course a night of fun, food and music and lots of friendly faces.
