A Preview of the 2018 Spring/Summer PC Home Collection
It’s finally sunshine time and the shorts, patio furniture, and cocktails (or mocktails!) are coming out. To get you inspired for summer, PC recently released a full home collection filled with whimsical, colourful, and tropical feels to get you in the mood. I was invited to attend their media event and here is a preview of their collections.
Throw pillows are a necessity to accentuate certain themes and colours in a home and these gorgeous tropical inspired pillows are the way to go. I absolutely adore the white one with the large fern leaves.
These coral ones with the same fern pattern? Genius. I can also see the straw baskets working very well in the bathroom as a towel basket.
Inspired by Morocco, the Moroccan Escape Collection will literally transport you into another continent. The geometric patterns on the dish ware would be great for serving up fresh, colourful dishes like zaalouk (and aubergine and tomato mixture) and taktouka (a mixture of tomatoes, smoked green peppers, garlic, and spices).
On the other hand, if you’re feeling especially Canadian, you may want to go for something from the Canadiana Collection. Playing off of last year’s wildly successful Canada 150 designs and feels, they revamped the collection to include even more Canadian pride. Plaid cushions, O’ Canada camp mugs, and grizzly bear towels… there’s everything you need to show off your patriotism.
The Desert Spring Collection is another one that screams tropics. Cactuses, ferns, hummingbirds, and lots of coral and green really make this collection come to life.
Prior to this media event, I actually bought this gold pineapple decoration for my own home! Little did I know it was from this collection! The fern (pineapple top) is fake so it’s perfect for someone like me who does not like to be responsible for watering plants.
In addition to their home collection, PC has released some interesting summer inspired food and beverages. One of the drinks I got to try was their Coffee Mai Tai Mocktail made with their new product, PC Nitro Cold Brew. Who knew you could buy nitro cold brew coffee from President’s Choice??
In addition, PC just added a new variety of cherry tomatoes to their produce department called “Axiany”. These Axiany cherry tomatoes are exceptionally sweet, with a great taste profile. These were paired with bocconcini cheese and croutons.
Last but not least, their PC Rocky Road and SKYR superfood berry yogurt bar. Both equally delicious, but one obviously more decadent than the other. Being a bit health conscious, I tried the SKYR yogurt bar and it was on point. Such a healthy way to cool down on the beach.
If you’re at a Superstore location, I would highly recommend checking their PC Home Collection out. It’s incredibly affordable and the styles are delightfully modern. I have a few of their dish ware at home and I plan to bring them out once the burgers start hitting the grill!
