September 2015 – Issue 243As much as we don’t want to think about it, we are heading towards the end of the summer. Kids will be going back to school, and the days will be getting chillier – although that is debatable when considering our Irish summers! In our September issue we have our living room special, which showcases lots of lovely seating options with sofas and armchairs, we also look at functional coffee tables with storage, advise on different flooring and lighting options, accessories for your living space and lovely fragrances that will surely help you relax. We move from the living room to a different living area of-sorts; open-plan living. We look at this functional living, dining, kitchen area within the home while showcasing some stunning spaces by a few of the best designers around Ireland.
Heading towards the Autumn/Winter season we take a look at some of the trends you can expect to see over the coming months, from amber to shades of grey and the new trend of ‘up-and-up cycling’!
Our readers’ homes this issue take us to Andrew and Emma’s Lisburn abode Little Wood; a beautifully built and furnished forever-home with lots of country charm. Further south we visit Ursula’s redbrick Edwardian home in Dublin that she fell in love with almost instantly, the beautiful ceilings sealing the deal. June’s masterfully restored getaway in Co. Meath went from hay-store to dream home, and what a stunning job she has done in bringing it back to life!
For our reader’s kitchen we return to Lisburn to Zara and Michael’s beautiful open-plan space designed by Beechview Interiors, surrounded by rural panoramic views.
Speaking of the kitchen, our cookery pages this issue feature mouthwatering beef and lamb recipes from Livestock Meat Commission Northern Ireland, so why not make a meal of it and cook up a treat.
In our travel features this issue we visit Waterford, home to stunning scenery and historical sites. Further afield we take in the sites and sounds of the Italian island of Sicily.
