#TheWayWeREALLYLive: Part Thirteen

6 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 …

This is the heart of my home. I was a property developer for many years and styled my own homes. I am now retired and love nothing more than to host family gatherings, nights in entering friends and Sunday morning brunch for my husband in this beautiful part of my home. I wanted to open up this side of my home to create a flow with lots of natural light flooding through. I love muted tones with lots of texture in the furnishing to give that cosy relaxed atmosphere. My aim is to make everyone feel welcome so they can kick of their shoes, dance in the kitchen and enjoy one of my signature G&T’s. @the_gg_house

This is the biggest room in my tiny cottage, so it’s a hard-working room. It is a living room, dining room, office and sometimes artist studio or yoga room. In lockdown I did my online colour consultations for Stillorgan Decor at my desk, looking out the window on to the garden. More recently, because of storm Francis, I had some roof damage and needed a new ceiling. It was no loss as my last ceiling was stippled 1980’s hell! I used Prime 4 from Colourtrend for the fresh plaster, a wonderful product with fabulous coverage. The fire breast is painted in Dressage, a gorgeous, dark true black and the walls are Alabaster White, both from Colourtrend. The wallpaper is designed by my design hero Joanna Gaines and is also available from Stillorgan Décor in Co Dublin. @missemmaedmonds; www.stillorgandecor.ie

Open plan living is great, until find yourself in lockdown with four kids and you need space to work. Luckily we have a “good room” (or the quiet room as my kids call it) which I have taken over in the last few months as my new office. What was once a lovely, uncluttered, restful space is now filled with stacks and stacks of samples and papers. But at least I can hide away and I have the luxury of a separate space when the noise levels max out. And I also have to remind myself that although it’s complete chaos at home these days, at least I have plenty of company and a lot of hugs and have not had to spend the last few months on my own. And for that I’m very grateful. @hiddleston_interior_design; www.hiddlestoninteriordesign.com
