November 2016 – Issue 257

Winter is approaching and that means more time spent indoors, feeling warm and cosy, away from the elements. Therefore, rather than heading out to eat, we tend to enjoy staying indoors and this issue, whether you wish to sit around the kitchen island or at a more formal table setting, we have numerous options and ideas to inspire you. Also Christmas won’t be long upon us and a dining table to seat all your guests might be top of your agenda this year.

The dark nights also make us think of the ways to artificially light our homes and how to do this atmospherically. Our lighting feature this issue offers lots of inspiration for wall and pendant lighting as well as floor lamps and table lamps; essential for creating that cosy ambience within your home this winter.

Our homes this issue include Eileen’s West Cork renovation which was once a rundown property until she embarked on a restyle and renovate with the help of family and friends. We visit a beautiful Georgian home in Dublin which oozes opulence and elegance in equal measures. Then in Helen’s Bay we meet Ronnie and Denise who decided that the best solution for their home needs was to build in the garden of their existing home.

Our reader’s kitchen this issue is located in Dingle, where we were wowed by Evelyn and Tom’s brand new kitchen designed by Celtic Interiors, which complements the rest of their home perfectly.

As for cookery this month, we feature some autumnal treats from a selection of top Irish chefs and cooks who are part of Miele’s cookery demonstration line-up this season.

Last, but not least we explore Belfast City and all that is has to offer; from shopping to sightseeing there’s plenty to see and do. However, if you are keen to get away for some winter sun then be sure to check out our list of hot spots around the world.

Finally, if you have a home or know of someone who has a home that you would like to see featured in the magazine contact us by email at or phone 028 9147 3979.
