EDIT is an Interior Design Studio co-founded by interior architect Nathalie Vos and interior designer Justina Gruzdyte in 2018 in the beautiful town of Kenmare on the Wild Atlantic Way.
Our philosophy is simple: Design should be useful, meaningful, and should enrich our happiness and well-being. We like to quote Steve Jobs: “Design is not just what it looks like, design is how it works.” Edit Design Studio really listens and understands their clients, as to do so, is more important in design than focusing purely on the aesthetics. We design spaces around emotional, physical and aspirational needs.
NATHALIE: “I am a South African native who married an Irishman. After graduating in Interior Design, I left South Africa to travel the world but didn’t get much further than London, where I spent the next 9 years living and working as a senior creative lead for award winning Interior and Architecture practices. I specialised in luxury residential design on projects throughout the UK, Europe and, the USA. My design style is deeply rooted in my African upbringing – there isn’t a single pattern, colour or texture that cannot be found in nature. I love using natural textures and materials and combining elements to achieve a layered look. I love the styles of Art Deco and Mid Century Modern for their playfulness, bold graphic forms, and general inventiveness.
I am also the co-founder of a Luxury design-led Children’s furniture brand, Bunny & Clyde.
In my spare time I love good food, spending time with good friends, visiting new places, long mountain walks in the wilds of Kerry, and spending quality time with my little family.”
JUSTINA: “I am a graduate of Vilnius Academy of Fine Arts and my early career was in graphic design. My graduation year of 2004 was also the year in which Lithuania became a part of the EU, which was a deciding factor on my choice to gain international experience. The very first introduction to interior design was working in a five-star hotel in Ireland where I met my first client, completing a project on a traditional Irish cottage. Inspired by this project I’ve started Interior Design studies, and in 2008, I received my diploma. I worked in The Fabulous Fabric Company for twelve years, where I specialised in commercial interior design working on hotel and restaurant projects throughout Ireland. Therefore I had attended multiple trade fairs across Europe to hone my design skills.
I have also continued to pursue my artistic career, a major influence on my work as interior designer. I am fascinated by graphic design and its power in marketing and advertising affecting peoples thought patterns and habits. I maintain a strong love for photography, illustration, and the visual arts.”
