#TheWayWeREALLYLive: Part Fourteen

5 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 …

I live in a one-bedroom apartment in Cork city which is small but full of life. The main hub of my home is the open-plan, kitchen-living-dining area. I have worked from home for the past three years so, for me, my day to day during lockdown did not change too much. The dining table has always been my office, meeting room and creative zone. I leave the kitchen area to my fiancé, Barry. My favourite area is the living room. Even though it’s right next to the kitchen table, the sofa is my chill out zone. I sit here when I am finished with work, relaxing, blogging and chit-chatting with Flump (my pup) and Barry. Over lockdown, this area also turned into our little social hub where we had our family Zoom quizzes and video catch up calls with friends. @style.sosimplestylesosimple.com

Our once “good room” is now a full time office for my husband Alan. It was a godsend during lockdown because with three small kids at home fulltime he needed space and more importantly a room with a door. This room is our Sitting Room at the front of the house and our escape at night when the children go to bed. It has a gas fire for warmth and atmosphere. I love open plan living but if lockdown has taught me anything it’s that you need separate spaces in your home, for everyone! The only problem is that the armchair destined for this corner will have to wait a few more months. @styleatno5; www.styleatno5.com

Fashioning a bedroom that you actually want to relax in involves more than selecting the perfect bed. Our bedroom is a calm space where we like to chill out and relax. I wanted a wanted a softer, calming palette of colours compared to the rest of the house, a sense of calm after a busy day.
