{Blog love: The City Sage}

If you receive the Bright.Bazaar newsletter, then you will know that I’m loving The City Sage blog, so much so in fact, that I wanted to share more of this inspiring blog with you guys. From interiors to fashion, to baking and beyond, each post is lovingly crafted and allows for endless inspiration.

I love the photography at work here; the soft glow of the sunshine through the window is stunning. The bath reminds me of this one from the set of It’s Complicated, and let’s face it stand alone baths just ooze opulence.
This has a certain farmhouse charm to it, which is a style I always feel drawn to as the weather starts to get warmer. Want to get a similar look? Check out the latest collection from Pottery Barn, which includes these vintage chic table linens.

How could I not include this brightly coloured staircase?! Not only is it in on-trend spring brights, but it reminded me of the staircase in my blog header! If you’re loving the trend for spring brights, check out my round up of all things bright. Or, if you want to get shopping straight away, then I’d suggest checking out Zara Home and Habitat for affordable and colourful buys.

Turquoise is starting to pop up all over the place in home interiors, and I’m surprising myself as I like the colour more and more. You can see from turquoise home pieces in this round up by the NY Times. What do you think of it? Turquoise or not, I’d love that typewriter!

Further testament to Anne’s great eye for design is this brilliant DIY table cloth that she featured on her blog recently. Anne posted it for Valentines day, but I think the bright orange is perfect for the coming season. Also, just how lovely is the styling?! We’ve got Kelly Oshiro to thank for that!

Isn't she incredible??! Original and inspiring and I like the fact that she resists copying and reblogging what everyone else is. Will!! You're becoming the same>unique, refreshing. Keep it up dude! Am loving your blog too! Can I put any more exclamation points here? lol. Do you think you'll be adding UK home interiors as a feature on your blog? You know, un-famous ppl but with interesting interiors..
