Period renovations, Moroccan adventures and heritage homes in Image Interiors & Living May/June 2018
We’re starting to get wafts of summer. The passing scent of cut grass is becoming more common, barbecues are being cleaned in preparation for the next burst of sunshine and our outdoor living issue of Image Interiors & Living is ready to hit stands, in all its coral neon brightness.
Here’s a glimpse of what you’ll find inside…
Two Dublin Period Renovations and an Italian Escape

This issue, we have two Irish homes that have undergone extensive renovation. The first is Mona and Rob’s Portobello home, and the furniture and features they accumulated on their long road to finally buying a home. The second is the home of architect couple Douglas Carson and Rosaleen Crushell in Rathmines, where an excavated basement has created a functional family home and studio space.

Finally, we head to the “heel” of Italy, where textile collector Deborah Nolan has created a space that exemplifies her exquisite taste in indigenous fabrics, and works as a bright and breezy shop space for all her wares.
Daniel Holfeld of Dar Sol takes us on a shopping trip to Morocco, convincing us to get out of the tourist traps of Marrakech and into the hilly villages in the Atlas Mountains, where true craft can be found.
Simple Summer Recipes
We’re all about getting out of the kitchen and into the garden this May/June and with that in mind, Ellen Lunney has created summer plates that require minimal preparation with maximum flavour, including a smoked trout paté, an apricot and cherry tart, and a blueberry and yoghurt cloud cake.
Breathing new life into a traditional Irish cottage takes a deft hand, adding materials that will allow old buildings to move and change while creating modern, functional and liveable space. Three architects talk us through the challenge of renovating a cottage.
