Bright Bazaar - debut book!

On April 15th, 2014 by .

I bought a copy of Mollie Makes magazine last week as my fellow blogger and author, Will Taylor,  mentioned that his super stylish home was going to be featured. The article is to coincide with the launch of his fantastic debut Bright Bazaar book, where Will shows you how to use colour in an intelligent and user-friendly way.  It’s available to buy through Amazon now, and if you haven’t bought it already then what are you waiting for!  Image below by Andrew Boyd

Above is a picture of Wills office space, combining a mix of old and new pieces.  The weathered table sits quite comfortably with his modern accessories and it’s his fresh pastel palette that pulls it all together.  This is a common thread throughout Wills work, he is so passionate about colour and manages to articulate his expertise in such a friendly and conversational way.  This relaxed journalistic style has won him fans right across the globe and I almost certain that this will the first of many publications from Mr Bright Bazaar, huge congratulations Will xx

Now it’s time to get crafty!  As I was flicking through the beautiful pages of Molly Makes, I stumbled across their free giveaway, a template for a floral brooch that was so pretty, I had simply had to make it. This was partly due to the fact that my 4 year old daughter was sitting at the tale with me and said “Mummy, you can sew, can you make this?!” Below is a picture of the finished article with my very happy daughter wearing it.

Introducing Paint by Conran

On April 10th, 2014 by .

One of the worlds best-known designers and someone that I have admired throughout my career, has launched his own paint collections; Paint by Conran. Sir Terence Conran, founder of Habitat in the 60′s, revolutionised interiors bringing modern design into the home for the first time.  To add to this acclaim, he also has his architecture empire ‘Conran and Partners’ as well his shops, restaurants and award-winning London hotel. For me, Terence oozes effortless style, Conran products have always been functional yet aesthetically pleasing, designer items that look cutting edge but still sit comfortably within a family home.

His paint collections are influenced by five beautiful landscapes, with each range allowing you to mix and match your colour schemes.  Take a look at his site for the full collection as I am sure you will be seeing a lot of this paint in all the magazines over the next few months, I can’t wait to try it.

Have you seen Dwells Spring/Summer 2014 collection yet?  It seems they have touched upon all of the leading trends; ‘Geo’ has been covered off with their Hex and Geo Side tables, expect to see pops of colour; including vermillion and mustard with the Valera sideboard, Smoky accessories and furniture; I think the champagne and wine glasses are so elegant, shown below in smoky grey.  I also love their Hobby desk lamp in pretty mint green, a colour that is everywhere at the moment. You can also expect to see an abundance of Scandi influenced products. Take a look at their site to see the full collection.

I decided to put together a little moodboard of my favourites pieces and why I have chosen them.  For a hit of colour, I went for the Valera sideboard and then introduced other small colour pops with my accessories.  My ‘Sleek’ dining table acts as a neutral base which would allow me to have some fun with the colour and pattern of my chinaware and textiles. The Curve chair is a real design classic and the fluid shape works really well in this soft smoky grey. For lighting, I picked the Hobby lamp in colour of the moment; mint green.  Finally, I chose their lemongrass candle as I am a bit of a candle freak!
