Stylish Smart Home Technology & How To Style It

*This post was sponsored by Walmart & SheKnows Media I love having stylish smart home technology in my home but the problem is it’s not always easy to find tech that is, well, stylish! My heartmate loves anything and everything tech, and had been encouraging us to add additional smart devices to our homes, especially out at the beach house. I get it, it makes sense for us to increase security (especially at the beach house, because as we aren’t always there), but also to streamline our lives and make life out at the beach house run smoother. By adding additional pieces of stylish smart home technology, I knew we would be able to control things both remotely and with ease when staying at the house, too. Everything from playing music to controlling our lights to planning beach days by asking for the weather to setting up schedules and reminders for when I’m back in the city, could all be done without lifting a finger or having to get up from the sofa! However, I remained concerned that we’d struggle to find stylish smart home technology that I’d feel comfortable bringing into our home from an aesthetic perspective. I enjoy […]

Three Simple Summer Entertaining Ideas

After spending the majority of the last six weeks traveling for work projects, I’m so excited and happy to be back home and able to enjoy August in New York. I think one of the best pleasures in life is taking time to just relax around friends and loved ones – even better if you get to eat and drink while doing so, right?! It feels so great to turn off my phone, or at least put it to silent, and relax outside. As you guys know, I am not a food expert(!) but I do love to eat good, honest simple food so I teamed up with my friends from Castello Cheese to share three ways you can elevate a summer party without the stress of spending hours in the kitchen.Over the years I’ve learned I don’t have to spend hours in the kitchen when I have friends over. Instead, I can keep things simple without compromising on great tasting food, which in turn keeps me feeling stress free. OK, so below are three super easy and simple ideas I do to instantly elevate any summer picnic or party I throw. The best part is that none of these ideas […]

IKEA Catalog 2019: Sneak Peek

The IKEA catalog 2019 is here – yay! As a lover of democratic and accessible design, the annual release of the IKEA catalog is always one of my favorite times of year in the design industry. I have a long history with IKEA and have closely followed their designs over the years. If you’re an IKEA mega fan like I, then take a moment to click through all of my past IKEA content right here. A few personal highlights include this IKEA infographic (nerd alert!) I commissioned back in 2013, and when I went behind-the-scenes of the IKEA catalog. OK, OK, I’ll stop completely geeking out and get back to the task at hand: giving you guys a sneak peek inside the 2019 IKEA catalog! (Ed note: aforementioned geeking out continues until the end of the post.) Yesterday, I attended a media event in downtown Manhattan to experience the launch of the IKEA catalog 2019. This year’s IKEA catalog sees the brand’s 75th anniversary and to mark the occasion the new catalog celebrates how we all live differently. Inside the 2019 IKEA catalog you’ll find seven distinct homes that represent a wide variety of styles, sizes and budgets. If I’m […]

NYC Apartment: Bedroom Design & Tech Updates

I was recently travelling and stayed in the cutest AirBnB in Palm Springs and it reminded me how much I love yellow. So when Hive asked me to partner with them try out their Hive Welcome Home Pack and new Hive View camera, I thought it was the perfect opportunity to refresh our NYC bedroom with some new color and new technology.As the summer season is now properly underway it’s a great time to embrace inspiration from your travels and channel those inspirations into new color and technology updates into your home! The splashes of yellow I loved on my recent trip to Palm Springs inspired me to add this warm yellow bedding into our bedroom. As well as the color updates, I also got to work on unboxing The Hive Welcome Home Pack and then adding the various technology updates to the space. The Welcome Home Pack is awesome because it includes everything you need to make your home work for you. The pack includes a thermostat, smart plug, motion sensor, window or door sensor, and two smart lights. The best of all for me is that it is so simple to setup. To be honest I often dread […]

Three Ways to Start Volunteering In NYC

// Sponsored by State Farm® (my social media fee was donated to Food Bank of NYC) and all views are, as always, my own. Here in NYC summer has finally arrived! I love summer because it’s so full of color and energy. Just the simple act of being able to get outdoors and navigate the city by bike makes me smile! There’s also stacks of opportunities to socialize outdoors during summer, from leisurely sidewalk brunches to festivals and concerts. Speaking of festivals, you might have seen on Instagram that I attended the Governors Ball in NYC a couple of weekends ago? My friends at State Farm invited me to volunteer with them as they had an activation to raise awareness of the State Farm Neighborhood of Good website. The portal is a place where you can find volunteering opportunities nearby, and it helps to match you with local organizations who need help. They set up a volunteering village to show festival goers that volunteering doesn’t have to mean a huge commitment and that even a small amount of time spent micro volunteering – from 15 minutes to a few hours – can truly make a difference to those in need.

Announcing My First Bright.Bazaar Product Line

Almost ten years ago to the day I was sat on The Tube in London riding across town with a then colleague and I sheepishly told her that I’d recently started a blog called Bright.Bazaar. I had explained that I didn’t really know what I was doing yet, but that I was excited to have a space to continue my writing – I was a recent Journalism grad – and to share my passion for design. I remember that she turned to me and said: “I have no idea what a blog is but I LOVE the name, it sounds like a brand and it sounds so YOU.” I’ve held onto those words over the past decade. During both the incredible highs and the times when I questioned everything and felt as though I had lost my way. There are always times in my life and careers where I lack confidence or clarity in my decisions, but that seemingly everyday conversation on the train has given me the courage to stand by my convictions and visions for my blog, and well – I guess it’s official now – brand. Today, I’m thrilled to write, the first Bright.Bazaar product line launches! […]

Translating Travel Into Home Decor

You guys know how much I love finding inspiration from my travels for home design. This approach to decorating was at the heart of my second book, Dream Décor. I love how you can discover, and be inspired by, fresh colors, patterns and textures wherever and whenever you travel. They are often so different from what you see in your everyday life that means they are perfect to bring home to us as they can be great catalysts to rejuvenate your home and, well, make your smile on the daily! My friends over at Grandin Road and I ran a competition where we asked a follower to submit a picture from their travels that I would use an inspiration to design a real life room. I’m so exicted to share this with you as I think this example really shows how you can be walking around on your vacation taking pictures and then use that as a jumping off point for all the design elements used to build a room. Let’s dive in and see the travel picture and then I will breakdown how the room came together from the winning photo that was taken in Miami by @r.jonesphoto.1. Color […]

Getting Older: What Rocks & What Sucks!

Posted in partnership with Keeps. It’s official: I am getting older! Well, we all are. It’s crazy to think I’ve been writing this blog for almost a decade. So much has changed since this young twenty-one year old guy hit publish on his first blog post, not least getting married and emigrating to a new country. It’s been a wild ride but I can say that as I get older I am, on the whole, loving life as I feel more comfortable in myself. I feel braver about making decisions for the right reasons, taking my experience over the past decade and channeling it into my decision making in a positive way. Another thing that I really love about getting older is finally being able to invest the money I’ve saved and saved and saved into my own home, like the renovation of our beautiful master bath at the beach house. I guess many of you, like me, rented and still rent apartments. In some ways renting is great because when things go wrong it’s not your responsibility to fix them – plus, renting can allow you to experience lots of different ways of life and properties. For example, my […]

Beach House Front Door Color & Tech

Bonjour, Summer! I feel as though I blinked and suddenly summer is here. It was exactly this time last year that we closed on the beach house. As you guys know my heartmate and I spent the last 12 months doing a gut renovation renovating the interior of the house. Now that the internal renovation is almost completed, we’ve turned our focus to the exterior of the house. So when Nest asked me if we’d like to partner with them to install their new Nest Hello doorbell, it was perfect timing.You might be wondering why you’re seeing holiday and snow pictures in June?! Well, I promise there’s a reason and it’s not that the house renovation made me crazy – although that’s debatable! No, it’s because I wanted to show you guys the current situ. when it comes to the exterior of the beach house. You see, we hosted a Friendsgiving at the house last November and we were super keen to have the front door painted in time for our first dinner party at the house. The temperatures were already plummeting and so we were running out of time to get the door painted before it would be too […]

Gallery Wall Ideas For Light and Dark Rooms

I’ve always loved a good gallery wall because I think art is one of the most personal elements in a room, and indeed, a home. The fact that art is so personal means it’s a great way to showcase your personality and imprint your unique aesthetic onto your home. Plus, it can be a wonderful way to add a design statement, especially if your space is lacking in architectural detail or, say, color. Today’s post explores two different rooms where a gallery wall is the focal point in the space: one light and one dark. Each of the spaces has been styled as part of my monthly picks collaboration with Grandin Road, and you can shop the art you see in this post right here. Check out my picks for the previous months, here. OK, let’s dive into how to style a gallery wall in a light space!This white shiplap room was crying out for COLOR! I love shiplap but if you don’t layer on colors and textures it can quickly feel cold and unwelcoming. Which is a big no-no when it comes to my #MakeYouSmileStyle approach to decorating! I used a gallery wall to add life and warmth to […]
