Spring Picks from Toast


The promise of Spring might still seem like distant dream but dream we can. A guaranteed way to lift your spirits is to look at the Spring/Summer 2014 offerings that are beginning to filter into stores and online.

One that has particularly caught my eye is the new House & Home collection from the lifestyle brand Toast. The beautifully styled lookbook has me daydreaming of sunnier climes thanks to the punchy hits of bright colours that compliment the muted greys and blues. Here are some of my favourite picks from the new collection.

Above: This flannel bedding proves that cosy sheets don’t have to compromise in the style stakes and will take you through to spring.


While I tend to favour white tableware, I’m drawn to the delicate colour palette of the Eve pottery range.


Toast sources many pieces from India including this indigo cotton throw, which was handmade by a small Indian cooperative.


I love the craftsmanship of this hand-embroidered silk and cotton cushion cover.


The combination of the crisp white sofa and the vibrant mix of blue cushions evoke happy memories of Greek holidays.


I like the idea of taking simple white bedding and adding detail with an embroidered throw. And, if ever an image has made me want to book a holiday then it has to be this one… Back to reality for now!
