September 2019 – Issue 291

As much as we don’t want to think about it, summer will soon be drawing to an end and we will be approaching the autumn months. Kids will be going back to school and the days will be getting chillier. In our September issue we take a look at living rooms and offer you a showcase of inspiration if you are considering making changes to this sociable space. Then our flooring feature looks at lots of stylish solutions. From tiles and laminate to wood, carpet and rugs, all sure to make a statement, along with expert comments to inspire. Our home office feature comes just in time for ‘back to school’, so you can get your home well equipped for homeworks! With a bit of planning and thought you can transform most areas into an office space and here we illustrate how to make it both beautiful and functional. We also take a look at some fabulous kitchen islands from designers around Ireland, as it continues to be the most sought after component of a kitchen.

Our readers’ homes this issue firstly take us to Dublin to a beautiful renovation that began its life as a tired, dark 1950s cottage and has been transformed by Yan and Barry into a dream home flooded with light. Further north, we visit Blanca and Adam who have combined their worldly influences to create this bright and elegant three storey Victorian townhouse in Belfast. Moving back from Australia to their native Carlow, Emily and Conor find their perfect home and enlist the expertise of an interior designer who brings the sunshine in to express their personalities.

For our reader’s kitchen we head south again to County Meath to Carol and Bern’s open-plan spacious kitchen. After falling in love with the Neptune brand, the couple visited Global Village who made their dream kitchen a reality. Speaking of the kitchen, our cookery pages feature a selection of mouth watering all plant recipes from Bish Bash Bosh by best selling vegan authors Henry Firth and Ian Theasby.

Our travel pages take us firstly to South Africa, a magical place to venture, with beaches, safaris, lush mountains and star-studded desert skies. Then, closer to home, we line up the eight things you must do or see at least once in your lifetime on our Emerald Isle. Finally our gardening expert, Deirdre talks to us about trees for bees. As always, if you have a home that you would like to see featured in the magazine, contact editorial on 028 9147 3979 or
