Renovations, extensions, period properties and lots more in our Big Project issue
From minor alternations to complete renovations, there’s no better time to get to get stuck into those long-postponed house projects than during the summer months, while days are long and the air is warm and dry. Whether you’re mid-build or still willing your daydreams into reality, there are plenty of ideas and inspiration to be found in the new issue of Image Interiors & Living.
Here’s what you can expect…

We visit artist James Earley before his most recent exhibition as he tackles a rather traditional art form – stained glass. Looking to modernise it in a way that works with his already-extensive body of work, James aims to capture the freedom, movement and fractious nature of his mural and canvas work in glass.
Converting a period property into a modern family space might seem like a mammoth task, but Gearóid Carvill of abgc breaks down how to merge the old and the new in sympathetic, interesting ways.
