Whew! It's a whole new year for your favourite interiors magazine (did you know House and Home sells 40% more magazines on newsstand than other titles, and that's all down to you, our fantastic readers?). Long may the trend continue into 2019, and to start the year with a bang, we have a whopper issue for you. Grab a cuppa, and let us explain.
- WIN a sofa worth €1,200 from Michael Murphy Home Furnishing
Our amazing win a sofa competition with DFS was such a smash success last month, we've brought it back this month too! This time around, you have a chance to bag yourself an absolutely massive voucher for €1,200 towards a couch from home-grown interiors brand Michael Murphy - which, incidentally, has just opened a brand new store in the Blanchardstown Centre. Wahoo!
- It's the BIG small space issue
We're in a housing crisis, many of us are renting for longer than ever - or forever - and in addition in Ireland, we build homes that are smaller than the EU average. So we understand that we're all trying to fit a lot into a little. Over 32 packed pages in this issue, the team offers tips and tricks to help, and we go inside two incredibly clever homes. One is 80 sq m and one is just 60 sq m, proving the point that you don't have to go big to impress. We hope you find loads of inspo for your own tricky, tight spaces.

Because c'mon - who doesn't love themselves some kitchen inspiration? We've got the trends for the year ahead, a lookbook to help you decide on the style to suit, a gorgeous SieMatic makeover in a period property and lots more.
