Next time you're strolling down Henry Street, you might notice an unusual set-up in the famous Arnotts windows.

While it may seem like someone has set up a home in the iconic Dublin shopfront, but nobody has actually moved in there. It's all part of a new campaign which Arnotts is hosting for five weeks from tomorrow called 'How To Home'.

Customers will be able to get expert tips, practical solutions and inspirational ideas to make there house a home and the Henry Street windows will showcase the best of what's in store.

The Henry Street windows will offer passers-by to see how to make the most of small spaces with an living room, hallway, bathroom, kitchen and dining room all featuring over the Autumn.

Here's what to expect:


Bold statement colours will make a strong impact with a focus on soft dressings from Arnotts.


Complete with masculine colours on the walls but with a feminine feel using contemporary materials.

Dining room

Encapsulating creative spaces and focusing on the Scandi influence that inspires many interiors today. The dining room’s main focus is a contemporary Skovby dining table with urban rustic wood and is all about functional living.

Living Room

Complete with blue colour tones and an eclectic feel, filled with everyday items that make a house a home.


A modern take on art deco styling using soft colours and showing customers how to make the most of a space which is, to some, just a corridor.
