#TheWayWeREALLYLive: Part Twelve

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 …

This space has been our haven. We are both recently retired and have spent many a happy hour going through our cookbooks and surprising each other with some lovely meals. We started off with one dog, a red and white setter and then got Lillie the Lurcher (featured in this image). Then, we got a red and white setter puppy. I know! They have three large beds in this kitchen and listen to Lyric FM all day. The dining room is painted Card Room Green with Pigeon on the kitchen cupboards and Wimbourne white on the kitchen walls, all by Colourtrend.

The bedroom became a mini sanctuary during lockdown. Often, in the afternoon, when my husband was home to keep an eye on the kids, I would take myself upstairs just to take a deep breath. We have lots of plants up there. I think?our?mini jungle helps to keep something fresh and alive flowing through our room so when my inspiration for designs or writing was low, I always retreated up there to see what nature would like to say. www.linesandcurrent.com

I live in an 1840s Victorian house in Tramore. My family had a full-board guest house here. It was always full guests from Offaly and Kilkenny who would holiday with us for two weeks. I have really enjoyed using my dining room and kitchen more than any previous summer. As it has been the year of the staycation, I have enjoyed hosting friends and family for their Irish holiday and enjoyed many meals together. I love decorating my table with china, crystal and seasonal flowers from the garden. The pandemic has taught me the importance of life’s simple pleasures that we too often take for granted.
