February Living Notes

February Living Notes

Your February living notes.


GOING GREEN

Pantone’s Colour of the Year (Greenery for those who’ve yet to hear) didn’t immediately win us over, but Urbanara’s collection has changed our thinking. And in fact, we do love the varying tones green can bring into the home, with enough imagination. Get ready to embrace nature.

ON YER BIKE

Our cycling addiction can be awkward when storing options are limited to a small shed out back or the entrance hall, leaving the household tripping over pedals. Cue the Rene? bicycle storage hook from Zilio A&C. Sleek and oh-so practical, from €148 at zilioaldo.it.

GRAIN OF TRUTH

Erica Sheehan’s award-winning Homespun Quinoa Crunch, €5.99, is gluten- and wheat-free and a great source of fibre and nutrients. More importantly, it tastes amazing sprinkled over yoghurt and berries or your favourite smoothie bowl. And as of this month, you’ll find it in select SuperValu stores as well as Avoca, Donnybrook Fair, Cavistons and health food stores. Our favourite? Pecan & Cranberry (though Goji Berry, Cashew & Coconut comes in at a close second). Hurray for healthy eating made easy.
