“What I love about this issue is that there is lots to make you smile. For one, it’s fantastic to be able to celebrate a homegrown star on the rise. Thomasin McKenzie is having a dream run in Hollywood, with a slew of sophisticated roles coming her way. It’s thrilling to see her succeed and there’s no doubt she has a bright future ahead,” writes Editor Ashley Nolan. “As always, there’s much to appreciate, celebrate and enjoy in the pages of STYLE this season.”
Choose from two covers – local talent turned Hollywood darling Thomasin McKenzie and a sophisticated Dublin home with character and charm.
Sumptuous fabrics and beautiful artworks are on show in our autumn décor shoot, and in Dublin, a dilapidated building is transformed into a forever home. Asymmetric furniture is right on trend and earthy tones make for timeless comfort. We look at what’s new and vibrant in the world of wallpaper, luxuriate in the season’s best bedding and step inside a light-filled abode in a beautiful location.
