#TheWayWe REALLYLive: Part Five

4 MIN READ SAVE

Our surroundings have enhanced our lives during lockdown. Here we let you look at our homes and ask to take a look at yours … 

We invite readers to send images of their homes to us so that we can create an ongoing portfolio of the way we REALLY live NOW. To share how lockdown has changed how you live or how you use your home, email a picture and 60 words explaining what happens in this particular space (home-schooling, zoom calls, nightly family dinners …) to [email protected] and your home may be selected for inclusion in our weekly #TheWayWeREALLYLive online series. To enter via Instagram tag @theglossmag in your pictures and use #TheWayWeREALLYLive. We look forward to seeing your entries …

Moya Farrell
Interior designer and founder of Avenue Interior Design

This year’s slower pace of life has allowed us to be more present at home. My living room becomes cocoon-like in the evening with the warm glow of the table lamps helping us switch off and unwind. The room doubles up as an exercise space: often, there’s an exercise mat or two laid out and the soothing sounds of a Spotify relaxation playlist. Last year I decided to take some of my own advice and paint this north facing room in a dark shade (Thunderstorm by Colourtrend). It has given the room the sense of calm I was craving.

This is my kitchen, dining area, staging ground for home-schooling meltdowns, baking mess ups, late night Zoom catch ups and all family meals. You will usually find me sitting at the dining table, à la Betty Draper minus the amazing fashion sense, contemplating my existence while the kids do their thing.

Lisa Davies
Cookery teacher, Saspan/Sospan

My kitchen has always been the hub of our home. During lockdown all meals and coffee breaks took place here. I was no longer able to teach cooking in person at a local Cookery School so I started teaching Zoom cooking classes. As well as being our diner, our family kitchen became my test kitchen, classroom and studio for photoshoots.
