Born in Dublin, former model Orla Collins decided to abandon the catwalk and turn into design, opening her own interior architecture company – Purple Design – in London in 2002. Not long afterwards, Orla was named Best New Designer in Practice at the Design and Decoration Awards.
“I’m not interested in design trends; what gets me excited is creating something truly special, with heart and soul – and for clients who want that, I’m happy to put buckets of blood, sweat and tears into making sure they’re ecstatic with the end-result.” Says Orla
Collins has and exceptional gift to create very unique, chic, luxurious spaces with great sense of individuality. She describes the style of Purple Design projects as “dramatic, elegant, opulent” and “anything but ordinary”.
We would like to show you some of her amazing projects.
