Welcome to my blog

May 12, 2015


I have wanted to write a blog for many years but as with everything ‘life’ got in the way. Being a wife and Mum, running a design business and moving back and forth between Ireland and France has left me with little time to start it. But the time is here and I’m bursting with ideas and information that I want to share with all my loyal and supportive clients, friends and Pinterest followers.

For the past 20 years since I began my design business I have met and been inspired by so many amazing people from the world of design, cookery, landscaping and entertaining. Not necessarily all professional people, sometimes it could be a friend who is just an amazing entertainer or cook, or an antique dealer who has a fantastic eye for beautiful pieces and a strong passion for what they do. These are the people I want to introduce you to in my blog.

Moving to the South of France was the best decision we ever made, we went for 8 months and stayed 3 years. Living and breathing the wonderful French lifestyle, markets, food, beaches and of course antiques. All of these experiences I want to share, as they have had a big impact on my design approach and personal life.

I am excited to get it started and hope you enjoy the journey.

Welcome to my blog, Minnie Peters – A Life of European Design.
