I just sooooo lurrrrve the Toast catalogue....although these pics are from a catalogue I
received before Christmas...
They inspire me no end....

I have been meaning to blog about them for ages now....
I lurve the way it has been photographed...
The colours...all my favourite things but with a new colour twist!
The fashion and design...
I even owned a top like this (or very similar) in the 1980's except mine was from a collection by Yohji Yamamoto.
I love the shabby feel of the walls...more shabby walls coming soon! I love shabby walls...don't think my landlord would be very happy though if I started doing that kinda thing here ;)
....the nautical theme.....you cant beat it!...can you smell the fresh air! hmmmm!
the totallllllly eclectic sofa...oh I so want to cover one like this!...its sooo twee, but delightfully inspiring!
all pics from The Toast catalogue

More shabby walls.... and suitcases for a bedside table...yes we have seen this before but somehow it looks soooo faberooni in this setting! Phew! did I really say FABEROONI! lol!

    Ok-Ok, I don't usually pass these along, but I hate January so I thought it'd be fun to "play" and help spread some blog-love! In one of my recent posts, I nominated you for "The Stylish Blogger Award" which asks bloggers to post links to some of their favorite most recently discovered blogs, and YOU came to mind! :)

    If you'd like, you can write a post giving 7 facts about yourself and including the links to some of YOUR new favorites! Then leave them a comment which "passes" the award along! So, dust off your mantle and find a place for this shiny, new award! Love, H.
