Wish List: Mellow yellow in the bedroom and beyond

Turning on the style in the bedroom, bathroom and beyond, Esther N McCarthy suggests ways of making everything mellow yellow in your home this spring.

This is Maurice Desmond’s ‘Autumn Evening III’ oil on canvas.

His ‘New Work’ opening reception will be held next Thursday, April 25 at 5.30pm-7.30pm in the Lavit Gallery and run until May 11.

Born in Co Louth in 1944, Desmond is a long-time Cork resident.

Having exhibited regularly in the Oireachtas and Irish Exhibition of Living Art, he has been a regular exhibitor in the Cork arts scene with notable shows in the Triskel Arts Centre and the Vanguard Gallery.

Check it out at the Lavit Gallery, Wandesford Quay, Cork.

A new collection of novelties for the kiddos in the family is set to hit Søstrene Grene stores on Thursday, May 2.

And as something entirely new — a bath and care series for babies.

The collection will be available in stores in the Republic of Ireland including Patrick St, Cork, South Great Georges S Dublin 2, Dun Laoghaire, Blanchardstown, Limerick and Athlone.

Ecologically planet friendly, Bamboo is stronger than steel and its tensile strength makes it one of the most versatile natural materials on this earth.

Meadows & Byrne are all about bamboo this spring.

Multifunctional, stylish, and versatile, the collection is available online and in store now, meadowsandbyrne.com.

Pictured here is the Alfie garment bamboo wrack for €139, it’s lightweight and includes a nifty fabric storage box for your folded bits and pieces — or your shoes.
