February 2018 – Issue 272

As we enter February we get to embracing our romantic side with Valentine’s Day around the corner. We don’t get too mushy this issue, but you will find a few hints on how to add some romance to your interiors with hints of reds and pinks, as well as our novelty gift guide.

This issue we bring you some bedroom trends, with floral styling, dark and moody touches, soft hues and some trendy children’s room solutions. Our dining feature has a selection of some of the latest dining furniture and accessories in a range of styles to suit every dining environment – whether you have open-plan or a separate dining space.

Fireplaces and stoves don’t only offer heating solutions for the home, but they also add an interesting focal point to the room. We bring you lots of options in this category! We also show a selection of the latest ovens, hobs and extractors for those on the look out for the latest in design and technology.

The readers’ homes this issue are truly lovely, with Brendan and Debbie’s beach-side house that is bright and airy in Howth; Andrew and Tiffany’s impressive renovation of a terrace house in Dublin that perfectly caters for their family, and in the North we have Chris and Leanne’s Belfast terrace, which they worked hard to transform from a dark period property to the bright and comfortable family home it is today. Last but not least we have Ciara and Joseph’s home in County Meath that features their dream kitchen by O’Connors of Drumleck.

Our feature regulars are jam packed too, with Destination Ireland taking us on a journey to find creative ways to spend time on Valentine’s day, and when we think of love we can’t help but think of Venice, which we are off to for our Destination Abroad feature. Our cookery this issue shares four delicious recipes from Marcus Wareing’s New Classics to try at home. Our gardening expert, Deirdre talks us through rain water in the garden; because we have plenty of that in this country! We hope you enjoy this issue, and as always, if you have a home or know of someone who has a home, that you would like to see featured in the magazine, contact editorial on 028 9147 3979 or editorial@ihil.net
