“On the advice of work colleagues, I enlisted the services of Dee at Yellow Gate Design. Dee was fantastic to work with. She gave great advice on colour choices throughout the house and other interiors advice from bathroom tile layout to soft furnishings that would work with specific colours. Yellow Gate Design provided a fantastic service from start to finish and I couldn’t recommend Dee highly enough.”
“Dee helped us plan the interior design for our living room and kitchen/dining/sitting room. She was able to listen to our tastes, needs, how we live in the house, what we need from it, and propose a plan suited to our needs AND our budget! Dee has a fantastic eye for space and design and helped us create the place we actually wanted.”
“I would describe Deirdre's style as funky and she was the perfect match for me. She really did take the stress out of the whole process and started to make it enjoyable again. Was such a relief to get all of these decisions made and to be happy with what I picked instead of doubting every decision I made.”
“I would highly recommend Dee for any interiors project - she did an absolutely fantastic job in transforming my kitchen and dining space. After listening attentively to what I wanted to do, Dee came up with an ideas board that was exactly what I was looking for and more. Dee has a great sense of style and a unique eye for colour - I couldn’t recommend her enough!”
“I contacted Dee when I was finding it difficult to finish our renovation. Dee knew exactly what I was trying to achieve, even when I didn’t! Our space is a tough one to figure out but Dee worked so hard to make sure that the space worked well for us. Her eye for colour is second to none and I’m already looking forward to working with her on the rest of our home.”
“I contacted Deirdre for a consultation and have to say it was the best time and money I spent...just wish I had called upon her sooner. She really understood what I was looking for and gave me loads of realistic and affordable ideas and followed up on all her ideas with links and contacts so I could follow them through.”
“Dee is the most amazing interior designer, She I has given me very clear ideas on how to go about decorating my sitting room, the most amazing combination of paint colours, textures, accessories to use to pull my scheme together. I feel confident now to go ahead with my decor, she really understood what I was looking for, spent time and had so much patience.”


My name is Deirdre Noone and I am an Art & Design graduate who has spent the last 15 years working for companies such as Top Shop, H&M, and Brown Thomas creating their seasonal window displays and interior visuals.

My love of working on interiors and home improvement has led me to focus full time on Interior design and consultancy work, with Yellow Gate Design being born.

The purchase of our own home, a 200-year-old cottage on the edge of Galway city, allowed me to be creative and gave me the hands-on experience in renovation and extension work. The house has been featured in several Irish and UK magazines, as well as coming runner up in season five of RTE’s Home of the Year.
