Sri Lankan Interior

PUBLISHED WORKS

INTERIORS

The beauty of writing about interiors is that the stories never die. Style and creativity are concepts that can travel across the borders of time and space. Turtle first understood this when a magazine took the honourable decision to publish a story about a stunning farmhouse in Zimbabwe six months after its owners had been evicted and the house itself destroyed.

Between 2000 and 2010, Turtle and photographer James Fennell embarked on series of assignments around South Africa, Mexico, Sri Lanka, the USA and Europe.  As chroniclers of interior design in their native Ireland, their work featured in Vogue Living, Objekt, Country Living, House & Garden, The Financial Times, The Irish Times and The White Book, amongst others. Their book 'Living in Sri Lanka', published by Thames & Hudson in March 2006, received widespread attention for its positive portrayal of post-tsunami Sri Lanka. It was declared "Book of the Month" by The Essential KBB, "The Hot Read" by In Style and one of the three "Hot Summer Reads" by Elle Decoration. The Financial Times, The Scotsman, Sunday Express, The Independent also gave it the thumbs up.

Turtle was Homes Editor of The White Book and The Book of Interiors from 2005 to 2009.

Examples of Turtle's interiors work can also be found on www.Villas.com and International Homes Magazine.
