December 2015 – Issue 246 – It’s Christmas!

On behalf of the whole team at Ireland’s Homes Interiors & Living I’d like to wish you all a Merry Christmas. We can’t quite believe that we’re at this point of the year again as the night’s are getting darker and we begin to see Christmas lights appearing in homes throughout Ireland.

If you are looking for inspiration when it comes to decorating your home this Christmas we bring you pages of decorative ideas for the front door and hallway, through to your living and dining rooms. From decorative ornaments to those essential extras, we have it covered. Our December issue features four beautifully decorated Christmas homes. In the coastal town of Bangor, Walter and Clare embrace the season throughout their home. With colour-themed decorations filtering throughout the rooms upstairs and down.

In Glengormley, Vince and Roisin have kept to the classic colour palette of red and green to enhance their home at this time of year.

Moving south to Wicklow, Michael and Philomena opt for a white Christmas with touches of a Nordic influence, and in Meath, Martin and Juliana have opted for a fairytale Christmas within their home.

This month’s reader’s kitchen can be found in Ranelagh and offers some festive red detailing. A Neptune kitchen from Global Village, homeowners Jack and Blaithin have incorporated elements of their old kitchen into this new design.

Moving on to cooking in your kitchen over Christmas, Ian Orr, chef and Lidl Northern Ireland ambassador serves up a few festive recipes for you to try at home, which can be washed down with the selection of Hennessy cocktail recipes from some very talented local bartenders. For those looking to escape the chaos of Christmas then why not head to the tranquility of the luxurious Galgorm Resort & Spa or perhaps you’d like to go in search of the big man himself and take yourself off to Greenland!

Finally, if you or anyone you know has a Christmas home that they would like to have featured in future issues of Ireland’s Homes Interiors & Living, contact our editorial team on 028 9147 3979 or email
