Esther N McCarthy picks her green favourites — for the weekend that’s in it.
Green is a calm, cool, colour for your home, I love this Arthouse Ellwood green wallpaper, it would work fabulously as a feature wall.
There’s a touch of glitter in there and it would co-ordinate well with crushed almond colour, don’t you think? Available from www.wilko.com €13.70 a roll. Laura Ashley and www.tlpaints.ie also stock Arthouse wallpaper.
Add a pop of green with this Pip quilted cushion, 40 x 40cm, €37.95 from Avoca. www.avoca.com

Alison Ospina has a new twist on her iconic Green Wood chair design, this armchair and footstool she’s made using fabric dyed especially for this project. Designed for comfort and style, it’s is one of a Limited Edition Collection made in collaboration with Kerry Woollen Mills, using 100% wool fabric.
Alison also has a new book out this weekend, Green Wood Stools features projects and photographs as well as her green wood philosophy and how being creative makes us feel proud and happy. www.greenwoodchairs.com
