TOAST Christmas

Inspirational Stylist and Art Director Lesley Dilcock, leads the way with Toast's Christmas lookbook.

The rustic simplicity and intriguing beauty of this Christmas lookbook was the clever work of Lesley Dilcock and Jonathan West, and, their latest collaboration for Toast. They have clearly nailed the brand with their successful little team, which is why Toast haven't strayed in a year. The look they so magically create is relaxed, informal, achievable, attainable AND aspirational. The key ingredient to a successful lifestyle brand.

I watch in earnest for their next collaboration...

Mega Knit throw

I love looking at colour bright accessories and interiors in the grey months of our English winter. It not only lifts my mood but brings a sense of anticipatory excitement for the release of new Spring product in the months ahead.

Hay, by Scholten & Baijings, do contemporary brights, just right. Here's a selection from Hay's lookbook this year - most of the below selected products are available from UK stockist, SCP East in Shoreditch.

The graphic edge of these designs are commercially sweetened by the soft pastel shades. Although, for those more daring, there's super bright options too. I think my favourites would be the Colour block bedlinen in red and the Mega Knit throw.

S&B Box tea towel

Colour block bedlinen PINK

Colour block bedlinen RED

S&B bedlinen

S&B Minimal Syrup bedlinen
Fold Un-fold tablecloth

The above collection, was a collaboration with the dutch pair Scholten & Baijings and Hay. A collection composed of carpets, bed linens and tea towels and revealed at maison et objet 2011. I can't wait to see what they showcase next year... this reminds me, I need to book my trains/badge if I'm going to fit in a non-stop day trip on 21st Jan!

Having seen the forecasted colour trends for Spring/Summer 2012 in Mix magazine this year, I can safely predict the Fluorescent products will be a hot pick.

Star of wonder

I absolutely love this homemade star photographed by Line Klein in Tine K's Danish home. Such a simple approach to decorating yet absolutely effective.

All you will need:

6 x stripped branches of equal length
Butcher's string or garden twine
Spray paint of your choice (the natural look is equally gorgeous)
