BUCH TIP - essentially Irish

A PORCELAIN sink with beatiful classic BRASS tabs. I like the position of the sink right under the window with its indoor shutters.
In Essentially Irish JOSEPHINE RYAN offers a rare glimpse into a fascinating array of Irish homes. The interiors featured include Georgian country houses, chic city apartments, pretty cottages and contemporary constructions. Their decorative styles may differ, but each home demonstrates the qualities that have made Irish interiors admired the world over- a RICH COLOUR palette, an affinity with the landscape, an appreciation of the PATINA of the antique, and a passion for the work created by a rich tradition of artists and craftsmen.
Josephine RYAN is an antiques dealer and stylist. Born in England to an Irish family, she spent her childhood summers at her grandmother's house in County Limerick and when she was 12 her family moved there permanently.

THE KITCHEN features its original flagstone flooring and a simple yet very impressive fireplace. One can easily imagine that this kitchen was one of the rare places in the house which was warm and cosy. The open hearth fire as well as the huge table prove the kitchen to be the HEART OF THE HOME.
