Getting Back To Normal After Surgery

Happy Sunday! I’ve had such a lovely weekend and finally feel like I’m starting to feel more normal after a rough three weeks or so. Over on Instagram I’ve spoken a little about a surgery I had two weeks ago, but now that I’m back on my feet and feeling stronger I figured I’d bring you guys up to speed with what happened. Three weeks ago I suddenly started to get intense pain down the entire right side of my face. It was a pain like no other I have ever experienced and it came in waves. I would be walking down the street absolutely fine one second and the next I would be doubled over in pain unable to move or talk. Fair to say that it was kinda scary. I ended up having a scan around my head which revealed the problem was coming from my jaw: a wisdom tooth hidden under the gum was growing into the jawbone and had completely crushed the root of the tooth next to it, as well as ruin the bone in that area. I had to have surgery where they removed the two teeth by cutting through the gum and drilling […]

DIY: How To Make A Fall Leaf Wreath

As we’re now well and truly in the flow of fall I’m taking my cue from the seasons once again. This time, I’m sharing a fun DIY fall leaf wreath project that’s the perfect autumnal decor piece to make for your home. I love how this fall leaf wreath came out and I’m sharing all the steps so you can make your own. Check it out below!

Beach House Master Bedroom Design Direction

Of course, we could have chosen to decorate the entirety of the beach house head-to-toe in the classic beach house palette of blue and white. After all, I adore blue in any and all forms! Plus, it’s proven to look fantastic in coastal properties as the stunning Mark Sikes designed Coastal Living Idea House showed this past summer. While much of the downstairs of the beach house will indeed take on this classic and much loved palette (hurrah!), we decided to mix up the pace and design direction upstairs with a different approach. When it came to the master bedroom we knew we wanted to create a space that was cozy and cocooning so that we would enjoy spending time there in both the summer and winter months. My inspiration for the beach house bedroom design came from the first piece I fell in love with for the room: the Sleigh bells paint color | Tiki fabric | Laguna linen throw | Black and white figure art | Acton Tufted Club Chair | Kelly wingback bed | Items not linked are vintage. // Posted in partnership with One Kings Lane

10 Things I Learned & Loved This Weekend

Happy Monday, friends! I hope you all had a lovely weekend? Mine was a mix of work and play. After a super busy week last week where I kicked off the first of the design reveals from the beach house, I let off steam in a hard workout on Friday evening before cooking dinner back at the apartment. On Saturday, my heart mate and I had breakfast together at a cute spot in TriBeCa before working the rest of the day. We did spend the evening finishing up with our marathon of The Bold Type, though! Has anyone else been watching? We really enjoyed it! I always love a drama series that’s set in New York City, even better when it’s based around a magazine publishing house, which this series is. If you enjoyed Sex and The City or Younger then you’ll definitely love this! OK, another busy week ahead with filming for a TV segment (eeeek!) and lots of editing and meetings, so I’m going to dive straight into my weekend highlights… 1. I literally wanted to buy everything I saw inside TRNK’s new NYC showroom. Love the masculine Scandinavian vibe.2. This golden yellow front door was too damm […]

Our Beach House Living Room: The Reveal

Phew, what a week it’s been! On Tuesday I revealed my first ever top-to-bottom kitchen remodel when I shared the full tour of our beach house kitchen. Yesterday, I blogged the reveal of the beach house master bedroom, and now today I’m sharing a look inside the beach house living room! After the master bedroom, this was the next space I designed in collaboration with Sally from The Studio at One Kings Lane. We started the process by going through a bunch of Pinterest boards, such as this one, that I’d complied with inspiration for the space. Then, we sat down together at the beautiful One Kings Lane Studio space in NYC (I’ll be blogging that space soon, too!) to go through the vision my heartmate and I had for the space. We had picked out a bunch of products from One Kings Lane that had caught our eye then Sally and I went through the selections, along with some of her own fantastic suggestions, to edit the space down to what you see here today. So, without further ado, let’s jump straight into the beach house living room design tour! Over the summer I shared an update from the […]

Our Beach House Bedroom: The Reveal

Before I dive into allllll the gorgeous details of the beach house bedroom, I have to start this post by saying a heartfelt THANK YOU to everyone who responded so encouragingly and positively to the reveal of our beach house kitchen earlier this week. Wow! I admit: before the reveal I was kinda nervous (read: very nervous!) because it was my first time designing a kitchen. Although my heartmate and I loved it, as a newbie to something you never know how your work will be received. It has ended up being some of my most popular content I’ve ever shared across Bright.Bazaar’s channels, which is truly the icing on the cake and I couldn’t be more grateful for the generous support of my work. Anyway, I don’t want this to start sounding like an Oscar acceptance speech (because let’s get real it’s just design!) but wanted to sincerely offer my thanks to everyone who took the time to leave a note telling me what inspired them about the space, and which details they loved the most. You are the BEST! OK, back to today and the next space we’re revealing: the beach house bedroom! This is the first of […]

Our Beach House Kitchen: The Reveal

In the eleven years that my heartmate and I have been together we have moved a lot – not least emigrating to a new country and our new home! I’ve written before about how special and comforting it feels to finally be settled: we both truly feel like New York City, and America, is our home. Moving our lives to a new country and starting from scratch meant selling and donating all of our furniture and most of our belongings; we survived on one income for 16+ months as my husband was only legally allowed to study here while we went through the green card process; and we both lost all of our credit history and couldn’t even open a credit card or get a phone contract when we first arrived. Was it stressful? Yes. Were there moments where we were both scared at the uncertainty? Absolutely. Was it all worth it and do feel beyond grateful? One million percent. The first time my heartmate and I walked into our kitchen at the beach house we looked at each other – me misty eyed because I’m almost always the emotional one (if you’re surprised, you’ve clearly never seen our wedding […]

Playful Prep: Men’s Fall Fashion 2017

Playful prep you say? Well, that sounds ideal for this color and pattern loving guy who is known to have a penchant for preppy style. Of course, there’s the college campus ‘hardcore’ prep look (who would have thought one day ‘hardcore’ and ‘preppy’ would be in the same sentance but bear with me!) and then there’s the softer take on preppy style. While both looks are great, I tend to air on the latter side of the scale, choosing to call on classic preppy style elements, such as the stripe and a heavily layered look, when pulling my outfits together. After the jump, I’m sharing the full details on this playful prep outfit I styled in collaboration with Old Navy using pieces from their current fall collections. Check it outtttt! It might sound odd but I started this outfit from the outside and worked in. I saw this denim jacket on the racks in store and knew that it would be the perfect layering piece for the breezy fall days ahead.Once I had the denim jacket set I started to think about how to give the look a playful prep vibe. I knew I wanted to bring some color to […]

Exploring NYC With The Delightways App

Whether as part of my #MrBazaarTravels adventures or on bike or foot around my city, it’s no secret that I love to explore! In fact, I’ve advocated both here and in my books about getting outdoors to seek design and color inspiration – it’s a great way to find ideas that you can then introduce into your rooms back at home. In 2016, Sanpellegrino® Sparkling Fruit Beverages launched Delightways – an interactive app that maps routes from A to B while encouraging you to wander, explore and discover. What I love about the app is it doesn’t map the most direct route to your destination, but rather guides you on a wandering path dotted with unexpected and inspiring stops for you to enjoy. In other words: it’s perfect for inspiration hunts! That’s why I was thrilled to work with Sanpellegrino® Sparkling Fruit Beverages to create a pathway for those looking for design inspiration in the Greenpoint, Brooklyn, NY neighborhood. I’m sharing some sneak peeks at my Delightways path, so check it out below! One of my favorite stops on my ‘Greenpoint Design’ pathway is Home of the Brave, which is the perfect store to find a unique gift for a […]

Decorating A Bedroom For A Great Night’s Sleep

Sleep. For many of us it can be something of an elusive luxury. If you are able to sleep soundly night after night, you might be surprised to think of sleep as a ‘luxury’, but rather consider it to be more a part of everyday life. Yet for the more than 60 million Americans who suffer with insomnia, a good night’s sleep really does feel like a luxury. As for me? Well, I’ve always taken a good stretch of time to fall asleep. While my heart mate literally falls asleep within 30 seconds of closing his eyes (seriously!), it takes me on average 30-60 minutes to fall asleep. I’ve had periods of insomnia in my life but (knock-on-wood) I have been fortunate enough not to be plagued with it on a regular basis. However, I totally sympathize with those who do regularly struggle to get a good night’s sleep. So, I’m delighted to team up with the folks behind the Beautyrest Sleeptracker monitor today to share some decorating, life and technology tips that I’ve found conducive in helping to achieve a more restful environment that encourages better sleep. Let’s get started below! 1. Understand your sleep cycles | Before you […]

Imaginative Doormats Which Will Bring You Joy

How To Dress For And Style A Fall Picnic

Seriously, where did summer go this year?! It literally flew past and now autumn is knocking on the door. Although summer has been great I’m almost always ready to usher in a new season, and that’s definitely true of how I feel right now. And what better way to celebrate the close of one season and the opening door to another than throwing a party in honor of the seasonal change? My friends at Stella Artois asked me to partner with them to ‘host one to remember’ so I embraced the coming autumnal season and threw a fall picnic party! We often think of picnics as a summer activity but in reality autumn is the perfect season for picnics because of the more temperate climate. The benefits of a fall picnic vs. a summer one include: the food stays fresher for longer; there are less pesky bugs; fashion layering so you can look stylish and not sweaty! I could go on…! After the jump I’m sharing my tips for how to dress for and style a fall picnic to make the party one to remember. Here’s to fall, friends! Aside from the delicious food and beverages, what makes a picnic […]

Designing The Beach House Kitchen

As long as I can remember the kitchen has been the space that colors the memories of any given abode I’ve lived in, or spent considerable time in. Whether it was pulling my mum’s skirt to show her my drawings while she stood at the farmhouse sink of our childhood home that overlooked the apple orchard and rolling English countryside; or sitting playing card games long into the night with my dear Gran at the long, rectangular dining table that stretched down the centre of the kitchen in her thatched cottage; or the bleary-eyed mornings at university sat with my housemates around a horribly cheap glass dining table that was squashed into the corner of a tiny kitchen, digesting and piecing together the events of the previous night’s party (OK: let’s great real it was probably after Noon!); or more recently in my heart mate and I’s New York City kitchen where we sit at a small table for two eating breakfast often commenting how lucky we feel to live and work in the city we’ve always loved. The red thread that ties all of these kitchen-based memories together? Coffee. There is always the smell and taste of coffee present […]

Beach House Floor Plans & Structural Changes – Upstairs

*Use the slider to compare the upstairs beach house floor plans from when we bought the house to now* Hope everyone in the US had a lovely Labor Day weekend and my international readers had a great start to their work week! The renovations at the beach house are coming along really nicely. That being said, there’s definitely been some road blocks here and there but we expected there to be: everyone we spoke to going into the project said that their would be unexpected problems (and costs!). And, frankly, they were right! Having our amazing contractors from City & Stone on board with the project has been a lifesaver, especially as this is our first gut renovation project. I plan to write a whole post about what we’ve learned through the process once the project is completed, but we’re a little way off that stage right now. So, back to the here and now and I’m stopping by today to share the beach house floor plans for the upstairs of the property. (I recently shared the beach house floor plans for the downstairs, if you’re interested.) Above you can compare the upstairs beach house floor plans from when we […]

New Walmart Styling Work: 1 Dorm Room, 3 Ways

Remember last year when the folks at Walmart asked me to style a holiday table on a budget? Well, they kindly invited me back to work with them on styling a #NextLevelDorm in three different ways, ensuring each of the spaces was decorated entirely with products from Walmart. The fun twist? Each of the three dorms would be inspired by a different social media influencer. As a believer in democratic design for all ages, I jumped at the chance to showcase fun ways college students could add color and style to their blank dorm rooms. It was great to style these spaces based on the individual personalities of Remi, Reginae and Mikey. After all, decorating is about making home reflect your personality no matter where you are living! This was a huge shoot to produce, art direct and style and I’m so proud to see how the assets look on Walmart’s dedicated Back To College landing page. High fives to all the team who worked on this project with me! After the jump I’ll dive into each of the three dorm rooms in more detail. Of course, you might not have a dorm room of this size but my hope […]
