Inside Image Interiors & Living’s November/December Issue

“There’s nothing more comfortable than a cosy floral pattern”
– Kurt Cobain


Like the quote that lines the spine of this issue of Image Interiors & Living, we’re cosying up to warm textures and soft patterns, stepping inside beautiful homes, and sprinkling a little festive cheer – but not exactly in the traditional sense. If you’re dreading those long, dark winter nights, take some inspiration from some surprising Irish homes, crafty ideas and the reinvention of a typical construction – the skylight.

A Modern Festivity

We’re restyling Christmas wreaths with a simple, deconstructed version of the typical bouquet using foragable foliage. Plus, we’re all about avoiding the usual decorations, the boring canapés and the same house-hopping box of chocolates this festive season with DIY ideas, delicious dishes your guests haven’t tried yet, and a round-up of gifts your host would love to receive.

Let The Sky Fall

Project Scullion 

Get the low-down on skylights as we talk to four Irish architects about making natural light work in your home, from vast star-gazing openings to clever little light bolts that add an instant difference to a space.

Cool Creatives

Homemade textiles have made a return in recent years as natural textures, quality, and a touch of nostalgia come to the forefront of design, and none more so than the art of knitting. We sit down with designer Liadain Aiken, who gave up her in digital creativity for a hand-spun version, creating colourful woollen wares in her Dublin city studio.

Home Sweet Home

We’ve got four beautiful home tours for you, from an incredible conversion of a listed coach house in Waterford and a bold restoration of a fire-torn Georgian property, to a bookish burrow in Marino and a winter-white city apartment.


The November/December issue of Image Interiors & Living is in shops now and available for delivery here. For more on inspiring spaces, interesting Irish creatives and unusual design, join our weekly edit here or visit us at imageinteriors.ie
