    Winter warmers from Toast

    by  • 20/01/2012 • Country style • 1 Comment

    It has felt like a rather long week, with the dark mornings, wet days and cold evenings. So this weekend is one for staying in, keeping cosy and taking time out to relax. These gorgeous images from Toast instantly ignite the desire for a long lie in, snuggling down under the covers with a good book wearing a pair of knitted socks and enjoying a cup of something hot! This checked flannel bedlinen layered with tactile wool throws, is the perfect antidote for these cold winter nights.

    Lisa Stickley at Heals

    by  • 10/12/2010 • Country style • 3 Comments

    I had the pleasure of meeting the lovely Lisa Stickley at Heals this week to preview her exclusive bed and bath collection. The designer has produced a colourful range of cheery prints on a splendid 200 thread count with fun bath towels to match. My favourites are the tree design called Champs-Élysées and Paint Palette (the colourful blobs!). So hot off the press it is yet to be photographed but in the meantime I love these sweet illustrations. Look out for them in store and online from February 2011.
