October 2016 – Issue 256Autumn has arrived and the days are getting shorter, not to mention Halloween is just around the corner! This October issue we have lots for you to get your teeth into; first up we have our bathroom feature which is full of stylish inspiration, covering showers, baths, basins and taps, from the contemporary to the more classic finish. With the change of the seasons it is nice to change up your interiors to suit, and with that in mind, we bring you the latest in interior trends as highlighted by independent Irish interior designers and interior experts from well-known interior brands.
Heating in an Irish home is important all year round, but more so in the colder months. Our heating feature brings you the latest wood-burning stoves. From traditional to more contemporary designs, as well as those designed to heat small or large spaces, we highlight a range of options to add atmosphere to your home.
Speaking of heating things up, our kitchen appliances feature brings you the latest in technology and function in the kitchen with a selection of range cookers, hobs and ovens; perfect timing for you to cook up lots of seasonal eats.
Our readers’ homes this October issue are a real treat. Colin and Ruth’s unique self-build in Ballymena is exceptional in style and design. They thought outside the box for this one, with a brightly coloured kitchen and contemporary furnishings, and it has really paid off. Next we are off to Kenmare, where artist Jacqueline has revived two dilapidated farm cottages to create a stunning rural escape filled with rustic country charm. Then there is Martin and Nuala’s three-bed Georgian villa in Dublin which has been transformed into a home full of natural light.
As for our reader’s kitchen, Paul and Claire’s Neptune kitchen in their Kildare home combines bright cabinetry and worktops with lots of natural light flowing into the space through the brand new double glazed doors, creating a beautiful space.
Clodagh McKenna brings us delicious recipes from her cookbook, ‘Clodagh’s Irish Kitchen’ and travel this issue takes us to the medieval city of Kilkenny before we take off around the globe in search for our top ten spooky destinations in time for Halloween.
