January 2018 – Issue 271

With the new year comes new opportunities for a clean slate; a good excuse to do the things we have been meaning to do or to try something new altogether. With Christmas behind us, we often look at ways of recovering from the over indulgence and the celebrations that take place over the holidays. The winter is still amongst us, and with that we continue with a cosy theme in our interiors, with softness and warmth throughout. Our seating feature presents lots of comfortable sofa and armchair options, with cushions and throws completing the look to create a cosy haven within your home. Window dressings are a must to help save on energy and to add a nice aesthetic to a room, and we bring you lots of blinds and curtains to choose from within our pages. To round off the cosy theme, we also have a soft flooring feature with rug and carpet inspiration, as well as a look at some of the latest range cookers that are still incredibly popular within modern homes.

Our homes this issue take us to Belfast where Seamus and Andre bring some global charm to their stunning apartment that ticks all the boxes for them. In Dublin, Cathy and Liam show us their refurbished sea-side cottage which has been beautifully decorated, and in Cork, William and Aisling’s home is a stunning renovation that has undergone a two storey extension and overlooks lovely views of the garden. Last but not least, Emma and John show us their stunning kitchen by Poplar Design, that perfectly fits in with the rest of their modern new-build.

If you are looking for ways to rejuvenate in the new year, our Destination Ireland feature focuses on ways of treating your mind and body to various activities and excursions around Ireland that will have you feeling like a new person. Further abroad we visit Vietnam and all it has to offer.

Our gardening expert, Deirdre Prince talks us through making a grand entrance and in our cookery pages we get to sample a few scrumptious recipes from Rachel Allen’s brand new Home Baking cookbook, as well as gaining some advice on ways to turn vegan.

Finally, all of us at Ireland’s Homes Interiors & Living would like to wish all of our readers a very Happy New Year, and remember, 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 email editorial@ihil.net
