Oh my goodness, I’m so excited to share Chairish with you all today! This is a design shopping site that’s like an aladdin’s cave for lovers of cool vintage or used design pieces. Think of it like Craigslist but without all the filler that you really don’t want to see (i.e. that flatpack coffee table you had in your student apartment with the paint chipped off and the chipboard showing. Yeah, no-one wants to see or buy that!) so you can cut straight to the stylish stuff. It’s super easy to buy and sell online and via their iPhone app, too. Right now they are shipping in the US but are rapidly expanding, which is very exciting!
I’ve teamed up with the folks at Chairish to curate my own collection of design goodies from my favourite finds on their site. The gorgeous Netherland’s home of Anki that was included in the Bright.Bazaar book was the inspiration behind my yellow and blues collection of design pieces on Chairish. In fact, it was this space that I used in the book as one of the examples of how to decorate with my Cerulean Splash Colour Cocktail, so this collection is literally a one-stop shop of super stylish pieces to get that look! My top three favourite pieces from my edit? Coming in at pole position has to be the gorgeous turkish rug thanks to it’s deep indigo hue and ornate pattern – a real statement piece. In second I’d trump for the yellow stool because the high lacquer would totally zing against the gorgeous indigo shades in the rug. Finally, I reference the textures and colours of the rug in the beautiful African stripe indigo pillow. Which of my yellow and blue picks are catching your eye?

What a weekend! Yesterday we welcomed our first ever puppy into our Bright.Bazaar home – meet Parsnip! She’s a nine-week old Italian Greyhound and is absolutely perfect. We drove a seven hour round trip to pick her up from a litter in Wales and I was amazed that she slept all the way home. Whether you’ve followed Bright.Bazaar for years or just recently started following, you’ll probably be able to imagine just how excited I am about her coming home with us! I’m excited (and nervous!) for the puppy training that lies ahead so any tips you may have would be welcomed. OK, I’m going to dash but I’ll see you back here on Wednesday. Have a great Monday, friends! P.S. Isn’t her first dog bowl from Fenella Smith adorable? Perfect for Mr. Bazaar’s pooch!

Following my first style post a few weeks ago, I’m delighted to share my second outfit in the series. I chose to blog this outfit because it feels like a solid late summer go-to. Whereas the first outfit was for all out (read: boiling/stuffy/sweaty/sticky) summer days, this is get up is perfect for later summer days when the sun still shines, but there’s not quite the same strength in its rays. Truth be told, I never wore white denim until last year. Having always worn dark denim it just felt so foreign to be wearing something so, well, light and bright on my lower half. That said, I’m so pleased that I did give it a test drive because white denim is now a staple of my summer wardrobe. I love how the classic simplicity means you can opt for something graphic for the top half of the outfit. The navy striped polo provides a striking contrast to the white denim, don’t you think? Plus, given it’s nod to riviera style I naturally had to embrace a little italian design with my D&G watch! What do you think of my summer stripes look, folks?
