The story goes that on a leap year, St. Brigid dropped to her knee at St Patrick's decree, proposing to him. The bould Patrick declined her offer, but he gave her a kiss and a silk gown to soften the blow. Esther N McCarthy picks some far more appropriate pieces for the day that's in it.

You’ll be a right cool customer with Colourtrend’s Cobalt Frieze. I like how they’ve set it up in a relaxing living room here, paired with luxe velvet accessories. It’s quite a strong blue, with the cool tones, it would work well in a bathroom too. Colourtrend is available from select stockists nationwide and online at www.colourtrend.ie. Prices range from €75 - €82.50 per 5 litres.
