For me, art is the magic to add space, says Roisin.
"This is a great way to increase your personality.
For the penthouse, she purchased a large
A proportional work by Spanish artist Lidia Masllorens, this face dominates the open room.
"I found the face to be very charming and the female face was especially so deep into them.
It took me a long time to try to find it.
I don't want it to be abstract.
I want it to be the focus and then all the other materials have to use it.

In this project, for example, her brother, sculptor Aaron Lafferty, produced a series of plaster masks interspersed on a mirror wall.
"They are my friends," she recalls with a smile how he was wrapped up as an actor like a mummy.
"Then, the idea is to twist the plaster when it dries, so that there will be different expressions on the face.

Roisin is a minimalist when it comes to frames.
A simple, clean framework will stand the test of time, she said.
