February 2022 – Issue 318



It’s time to feel the love as we highlight the newest interior colour trends and once again bring the latest additions to help make your house a much-loved home full of warmth and ambience. Speaking of warmth and ambience, our interior features this issue focus on stoves and fires, both of which not only create attractive focal points, but add a cosiness to your interior spaces, as well as flooring, the choice of which can really make all the difference to the various rooms throughout your home. Our four readers’ homes include Mona’s elegantly renovated period property in Portobello, Dublin. Quirky touches and modern pieces blend harmoniously with the original features of this unique home. Elizabeth and Mark open the doors to their beautifully restored farmhouse in Co. Tyrone and we get a closer look inside Trina and Mark’s Kilkenny new build, which is an elegant and practical family home. Last, but not least in Co. Armagh Kevin and Helen enlisted the help of McAleenan Architects & Interior Design to create a showstopping build inside and out! This issue we’ve continued on from where we left off last month with our Irish influencers and the interior items on their wishlists. There’s plenty to inspire when it comes to decorating your own spaces in 2022! As for our cookery pages, this month’s recipes are meat-free for anyone wanting to benefit from introducing more vegetarian options into their diet. We also catch up with Rachel Allen who chats about her love of soup and shares some recipes from her new cookbook Soup Broth Bread. Travel takes us to Enniskillen and Bangor, as well as three Irish hotels offering romantic breaks this Valentine’s Day. Gardening focuses on roses and there’s lots of love for our Irish brands and makers in #madeinireland! Finally, I would just like to say, if you have a home or business that you would like us to consider featuring in 2022, then please don’t hesitate to email me at mconnolly@ihil.net
