Interior Design, The future is here.

David Hockney Inspired Interior Design

// Shop the look: fig.1 | fig.2 | fig.3 | fig.4 | fig.5 As a color lover, David Hockney’s work never fails to inspire. His use of color has inspired me from everything from fashion to decor, leading me to color palettes I couldn’t even have dreamed of if it wasn’t for his saturated works. David Hockney’s new retrospective at the Tate Britain has me itching to grab my passport, jump on a flight to London and soak up some color inspiration through the twelve(!) rooms that are showing his art. From aqua blues to coral pinks and everything in between, Hockney’s classic hues are guaranteed to brighten up the darkest of February days – and as it’s been overcast and wet for much of this week in New York City I felt it couldn’t be more fitting to feature some David Hockney inspired interior design! The Kairos Collective have a series of lighting, accessories soft furnishings and furniture that are perfect for inviting a splash of David Hockney inspired interior design into your home. From the spectrum of hues seen in the shell beach rug to the use of graphic color and shape in the indigo two pillow, these […]

Carl Hansen NYC Showroom Tour

Those stylish Danes sure know how to make me smile when it comes to design. So, naturally, I was thrilled to learn that Carl Hansen & Son have opened their second showroom right here in New York City. Following on from their SoHo space, the brand have now headed into the Flatiron district for their new Carl Hansen NYC showroom. I love that the Danish brand decided to forgo the traditional approach to a showroom, opting instead to create an inspirational, loft-like apartment rather than a traditional showroom. Stuffy showrooms begone – I’m all about more informal environments when it comes to design! After all, you want your home to feel relaxing and personal, not buttoned up and formal, right? So, in my mind, the experience of shopping and designing your space should mirror that, too. Join me in taking a tour through the ‘apartment’ after the jump! Aside from being one of Scandinavia’s best-known brands, I’ve long admired Carl Hansen because they are the company behind some of the greatest furniture classics in Danish design history. From the classic furniture craftsmanship by Hans J. Wegner to modern classics from Ole Wanscher, Frits Henningsen and Kaare Klint, right through...

10 Things I Learned & Loved This Weekend

How was your weekend, friends? I’m writing this from my sofa (TBH I’m still catching my breath after that incredible performance by GaGa at the Super Bowl – LOVED!) and I am relaxing with homemade pizza and red wine. My weekend took me all over the city included the three Bs: broadway, ballet and brunch – what’s more to love?! What made you smile this weekend? Check out my full list of ten weekend highlights after the jump! 1. A walk through the West Village isn’t complete unless I get a cookie from by CHLOE. So. Darn. Tasty! 2. On Saturday I was proud to rally for the rights of my LGBTQ+ brothers, sisters and allies. There’s a long road ahead and if you would like to find ways to help and support, please read this post.3.

Six of The Best Colorful Couch Designs

Remember the cover of my first book? It featured one of my favorite London apartments and the yellow couch that graced the cover was a hit well beyond the four walls of my home! Even though the book came out almost four years ago, I still get emails from readers asking me where it’s from. So it’s safe to say that colorful couch designs are still super popular! The great thing about colorful couch designs is that they don’t have to be shockingly bright (although that works too!), but can be quietly colorful and still add a punch of personality to a room. I just bought a pastel pink couch for the living room of my New York City apartment (expect a room tour very soon!) and it inspired me to do my latest six of the best round up on colorful couch designs that would work for a variety of design tastes. You name it, from modern to traditional and club to classic, there’s a colorful couch for you! Let me know which is your favorite? Do you have a colorful couch at home that you love? Check out the details on each of the six and where to […]

How To Grow Tomato Plants In Buckets

If you would like  to eat delicious tomatoes during whole year, you should grow your own tomatoes yourself. They are not always fresh and tasty tomatoes bought from store.

Norway’s Polar Night

Between Christmas and New Year I took a week off work to head on vacation in Northern Norway. One cab, three flights and a bus journey later and I had made it from New York to Alta, Norway. If you were following along with my Instagram Story then you’ll know that when I landed at 2pm in the afternoon it was pitch black. This was because I was visiting the region in the middle of their ‘Polar Night’. Norway’s Polar Night is a period of time between November 25th and January 19th where the sun doesn’t rise above the horizon. I was excited to experience this phenomenon, and I’m pleased I did (and also very pleased I only had to experience it for three days; it’s intense!). Each day at around 11am the sky would start to gently glow – as long as it wasn’t snowing – and there would be around an hour of this faint glow before the sky would start to glow pink from below the horizon line, which is a bit like that moment just after the sun disappears from view in a normal sunset. One one of the days the whole sky lit up in […]

A Morning in SoHo, NYC

One of my favorite things about living in New York City is the knowledge that there’s always a new place or area in the city to explore. Whether you wander through a neighborhood that’s well-trodden or take the path less travelled to an unexplored corner of the city, you can count on finding a new coffee shop, restaurant, gallery or store to inspire you. To celebrate Club Monaco adding menswear to their flagship store on Broadway in SoHo I spent a morning in the area to make a mini guide to SoHo, NYC. Check out my favorite places from this popular part of town in my guide to SoHo, NYC after the jump! MAMAN Maman is tucked away in a relatively quiet enclave off busy Centre Street, making it the ideal tonic to the hustle and bustle of SoHo. They serve family-inspired recipes from the South of France and North America, bringing to life both savory and sweet childhood favorites. They source their ingredients locally and the coffee is divine. Run, don’t walk – it’s the perfect place to fuel up for some shopping!For my explorations around SoHo I wore this Club Monaco outfit, which quite possibly the best fitting […]

19 Colorful & Affordable Art Websites

It’s no secret that I love art; nor that I adore gallery walls. In fact, I think colorful art is one of the best ways to imprint your personality on your space. While some people have a weakness for shoes or bags, mine is with art. Confession time: the space under my bed is full with prints and artworks from previous apartments that I can’t bare to part with or sell. I know (hope!) that one day I’ll own my own place with more space than a one-bedroom apartment so I can hang them all again. Having navigated (enjoyed!) this addiction for many a year now, I’m well versed with where to find my latest hit of colorful art from affordable art websites. You name one and there’s a high chance I’ve bought a piece from it! So, today I’ve rounded up 19 colorful and affordable art websites that are great to have in your decorating back pocket when you are looking to add a splash of color and personality to your home! 1. U Gallery: Of course my love of the coast and all things nautical led my eye straight to this photographic print, Fish Shacks Spring Thaw by […]

Morning Rituals

Here’s the thing. Last year, I fell into a pretty bad habit when it came to my morning routine. You see, as gorgeous as the old Brownstone apartment that I lived in for the majority of last year was, it had some downsides, too. One of the major ones was the heat: the steam heat in the building was locked on and so the apartment was always uncomfortably hot. The apartment was located at the top of the brownstone, with the bedroom reached via a spiral staircase that was open to the living space below. I know, I know, it all sounds very “New York sitcom apartment-esq” – and it was charming to look at, just not to live in as the bedroom was like a furnace all year. This meant that I found my sleep pattern to be totally off: I would toss and turn all night, usually only falling asleep in the early hours of the morning. As a result, I would wake much later than I liked, feeling groggy, hot and, well, far from refreshed when I did. That’s why moving into our new apartment last Fall felt like a total 180 on quality of life as […]

How To Workout Anywhere

Almost every time I post a picture on my Instagram feed from one of my travels someone will ask me how I workout on-the-go when I’m away from home. The truth is, it’s not always easy to fit in a full workout everyday like I try to do five to six times a week when I’m at home in NYC. Schedules are changed, timezones are different, meetings need to be taken and routines are disrupted. Lack of routine – that’s what gets in the way of a consistent workout schedule. The moment I developed a routine for my workouts and planned them into my day-to-day I found myself working out much more regularly and the results started to show. But that didn’t stop the issue of keeping on track while on the road. So, I started to approach my exercise routine differently when traveling compared to how I workout at home. Instead of trying to fit in formal fitness classes, spin, weights sessions and so on, I decided to take elements of those classes that I could do anywhere. This left me with a simple, quick and, importantly, no-equipment-needed exercise routine. The best part about this workout anywhere guide is […]

Fighting For What’s Right Is Worth It

Throughout last year’s election I made no secret of my impassioned support of Hillary Clinton. I live tweeted to my followers during debates and beyond; I attended her rallies and primary night event in NYC (seen mid-chant at said event above!), bringing my followers along live on Snapchat; and shared I my support of her campaign on Instagram. To me, Hillary wasn’t the lesser of two evils. Rather, I believed, and still believe, that she genuinely loves America and would have been a fantastic President. But this post isn’t about lamenting her electoral collage loss. Nor is this post isn’t about the fundamental differences between Democratic and Republican views. No, this post is about speaking up for the values I firmly believe in. It’s about voicing and encouraging support for the minorities and communities and a country that have welcomed my husband and I so warmly since we moved to America 16 months ago. Of course, I understand and accept that as a people we will hold differing political opinions on general issues such as the economy, trade, healthcare, business regulation and so on. That’s normal and a healthy debate on those areas is important and should be encouraged....

Stockholm Style

Aside from their cool cities, stunning landscapes and gorgeous interior design, one of my favorite things about Scandinavia is their effortlessly cool sense of fashion. So, whenever I’m lucky enough to visit the region, I always try to schedule time for a little retail therapy so I can bring home an item or two from my favorite Scandi style brands to add into my closet arsenal. During my trip to Stockholm over New Year’s Eve I picked up this Wood Wood mens jacket as I felt it would be a great jacket to have to hand when an outfit needs an introduction of texture.The textured finish to the wool jacket meant that no pattern was needed in the look, so I kept things simple and classic with a denim button down (you know I love a pop of classic blue like this!). Black denim tied in well with the black accent detailing in the chest pocket of the jacket.White sneakers (similar) with contrast forest green suede at the heel continued the graphic shape theme set off by the pocket detailing of the jacket. My Movado watch rounded out the simple and pared-back look, perfectly.Luckily, the weather wasn’t too cold for […]

New York City Snow Day

Well, it’s fair to say that I LOVE a New York City snow day! We’ve already had three snow storms this winter in New York City. I shared a round up of my favorite Christmas snowy scenes in the city at the end of last year, and also a look at one of my snow day outfits, too. This weekend’s snowfall wasn’t as heavy as last year’s historic snow storm in New York City, but it was still a fair amount – about 4-5″. I’ve rounded up some of the New York City snow day scenes that caught my eye and made me smile this weekend, after the jump! Greenwich village sure does look charming under a blanket of fresh, powdery snow. Well, let’s get real, it looks charming any day but the snow is a little added bonus!I posted this to my Instagram Story but I liked it so much I wanted to include it here too. I just managed to get grab my phone in time to capture the shot before the cab went out of frame. I love how the disappearing cab gives a feeling of NYC’s space. Yes, even a New York City snow day is […]

A Fresh Start

Happy New Year! I hope 2017 is off to a great start for you? I’ve been on the road in Europe since Dec 26th and I’m currently in Paris working on a fun project for Eurostar (follow along on my Instagram!). I have lots of fun content from my travels to share here in the coming weeks but I wanted to kick off with my first Bright.Style post of the year. Yesterday evening, I was shopping in the Le Marais district of Paris when I walked past a Sandro Paris store. Of course, it would have been rude not to head inside and I’m so pleased I did! Not only did they have a really great sale on but also their prices were so much cheaper than those for the brand’s items in America. Safe to say, I did a little shopping! One of my spoils from the store was this Sandro men’s bomber jacket. I decided to wear it to the Fondation Louis Vuitton contemporary art gallery here in Paris today. Check out my full outfit after the jump! This shot gives a sense of scale to the incredible architecture of the Fondation Louis Vuitton, which was designed by […]

Snow O’Clock

It’s no secret that I love snow. In the past I’ve shared my pictures of New York City under a historic snowfall, as well as beautiful Paris decorated with a blanket of snow, glistening like white crystals. So, given my love for snow, it’s unusual that I’ve yet to share one of my snow day looks in my Bright.Style column. I’m correcting that today with my latest style post, which I photographed during the heavy snowfall in NYC on Saturday morning last week. I’d been meaning to find an opportunity to wear my new Emporio Armani men’s chronograph watch, and this was the perfect opportunity to up my snow style game by planning my outfit around the stylish quartz watch. Click through after the jump to see my snow look in full. I’ve always been an accessories kinda guy: watches, bags, shoes – those are my favorite pieces to shop and wear. So, I styled this snow day look to make my watch the statement piece of the outfit. I wore my long coat open to show the outfit layers – a military style shirt jacket and festive burgundy red sweater – which I paired with black denim and boots. […]

Real Inventions From Kids’ Creative Drawings

Scandi Scenes

Hurrah! We made it to Friday, you guys. With the festivities of the holidays all but a distant memory and the return to the daily grind (often under a cloud of grey skies!), January can feel like a bit of a drag, don’t you think? So, it’s good to celebrate making it through the week! Do you have fun plans for the weekend? I’m hoping to head out into the city to continue practicing my photography, as well as catching a movie. There are so many films I’d like to see right now – Manchester by The Sea, Lion, La La Land, Fences and more! Have you seen any of these? Which would you recommend? Before I head out for the weekend, I wanted to share a few photographs of the colors in Stockholm that I captured during my brief stay in the city over NYE. Most of these are just quick on-the-go iPhone snaps but I kinda like the raw feel to them. It’s an eclectic mix of street scenes, architecture, colors, vignettes and interiors – a colorful mix of Scandi scenes that caught my eye. I love Stockholm so I hope you will enjoy this little iPhone photo […]

A Gift for My Heartmate

This year I will be celebrating my tenth holiday season with my heartmate, Toby, and so I really wanted to surprise him with a special gift. Aside from wanting to express my deepest love and gratitude for his love and support throughout the past year, I also wanted to show my support and encouragement for the personal journey that he’s been on since we moved to New York City last year. So, I teamed up with HP to #ReinventGiving and surprise my husband with a new Spectre x360 laptop. Click through after the jump to read why it meant so much to me to gift him the HP Spectre x360, and see the whole surprise go down on video! Since our move to NYC, Toby has been learning to code – it’s a skill he’s always wanted to acquire but hadn’t had the opportunity or time to invest in properly learning. It’s been so inspiring to hear and see his excitement as he comes home from class, telling me what he’s learned and what’s up next. I have so much admiration for his dedication and commitment to learning something new, taking the challenges of the process in his stride. As […]

Smartphone With Manual Camera

Over the years I’ve been blogging (almost eight, yikes!) I have grown to love photography. Several years ago I shared 10 need-to-know photography basics and it was super popular with you guys. So, today, given the advances of technology between then and now I thought it would be useful to write a post on how you can shoot manual with your smartphone. Yes, a smartphone with a manual camera, it’s a real and very cool thing! I teamed up with ASUS to show how their smartphone with a manual camera, the ZenPhone 3 Deluxe and accompanying smart watch, the ZenWatch 3, are great for photography and style lovers alike. Click through after the jump to read all my tips on how to use a smartphone with manual camera. The manual mode photography option on the ZenPhone 3 Deluxe allows you to adjust the ISO value of the photograph that you are taking. This means you can alter the sensitivity of the lens to the light in the image, meaning you can see more or less of the detail in the image. Increasing the ISO value will bring out more detail and raise the light but it will also mean there’s […]

Winter Style All Wrapped Up

Staying stylish in the cold weather can sometimes feel like an uphill battle, right?! Yesterday I shared a stylish look for when it’s snowing and today I’m blogging this cold (and dry!) winter weather day look that features the super cozy Mackage leather jacket I blogged about back in the fall. One thing I love about dressing during the winter months is accessories. It’s so freakin’ hot in NYC during the summer that I want to wear as little as possible. Sometimes it’s even too hot for a watch, TBH! So, come the colder seasons, I like to dress up my looks with cold weather accessories that not only keep me warm but look great too. See my winter look in full after the jump! I can’t get enough of my green pants from Club Monaco (psst! these are on sale with an additional 40%R off the sale price right now – run!) as they have the perfect super slim fit. The subtle color pairs really well with the staple black and sand colored pieces in my closet, too. Not to mention that the green hue is also perfectly seasonal.I like to make a statement with accessories, not in a […]
