The new issue of House and Home is on newsstands today, 11th October, and it's a whopper: check out seven superb reasons to pick up your copy below.
1. It's the Christmas issue!
With just a little over 70 sleeps until Santa Claus arrives, our new November/December issue has all the festive inspiration you need to add some Christmas cheer to your home. This issue is bigger and better than ever, with extra 16 pages PLUS there's a 40 page section solely dedicated to all things fun and festive. Nothing says Christmas like a beautifully decorated tree and we've found the most unique and incredible baubles to bling your branches. Anna Wintour decoration anyone? But of course, that's not all. From an ethical Christmas tree guide to ten new festive decorating ideas to try this season, the styling possibilities are endless. Now you have all the tools so you just need to get decorating!
2. House and Home: Interior Influence Awards in association with DFS shortlists are revealed!
In September we launched the House and Home: Interior Influence Awards in association with DFS. Over the last month thousands of you have voted for your favourite Irish interiors Insta-personality or blogger in a range of categories and now the results are in. The wait is finally over and we can reveal the shortlists in all 14 categories. Pick up a copy of the magazine and find out if your name or the influencer you voted for made the list. PLUS, tickets for the awards night on 6th November in The Alex hotel, Dublin are on sale NOW. Tickets for the event are limited so if you want to be there on the night, you can purchase your ticket here.
3. FIVE gorgeous real homes
In every issue, we feature an array of incredibly interesting real homes from Ireland and abroad. In our November/December issue is a special one as we've featured two Christmas homes; Ruth McGahey's (@house_of_goose_studio) magnificently merry Meath home and Sarah Battle's (@housebythewhitethorns) festive winter wonderland in Ballina. Don't worry though, it's not all glitter and garlands in all our real homes. Check out the period property in Drumcondra, Dublin, that shows how to do a renovation right and take a look at Anna Atwal's eclectic Edinburgh home which is a masterclass in how space informs style. We've also got a great makeover project in Co Wicklow to inspire any renovation plans you might have.
4. Get lit
With Artic winter weather back in full force, there is nothing more relaxing and cosy than snuggling up in front of a warm fire. If you're looking for fireplace, stove or mantle inspiration, we've got the low-down on the best to buy for your warmest winter ever.
5. Genius kitchen and bathroom ideas to try
From celestial curves to luxe radiators, your bathroom is about to get steamy with gorgeous new ideas to try. In kitchens, we've got clever hacks and upgrades to make your space work really hard and perform even better than before. Like the stunning rose-coloured Unit from Cesar Kitchens - not only is it a show-stopping shade, it combines clever ideas like a cool floating table top. Check out lots more like this in the issue.
