Emily Henderson wasn’t content with winning a TV show, presenting her own TV programme or launching a spanking new blog. Nope. She had to have a down right fabulous home, too. And boy am I glad she does because it’s a testament to her understated and relaxed decorating style. Flea market finds and small, delicate vignettes create an effortlessly stylish space, which showcases her talent as a prop stylist. Her use of midnight blue hues add depth and visual interest to the scheme that flows throughout the whole apartment. Meanwhile, vintage artworks are hang proudly on the walls, each new drawing or painting adding a quirk to her eclectic home. Oh, and I should mention, she’s utterly charming in person as well.

Do you ever fall upon a blog, website or creative space and instantly it connects with your aesthetic? Well, this very experience happened to me when I turned the first page of Sweet Paul’s fall issue, whose inside cover was dedicated to advertising Elephant Props, a full-service prop house in Manhattan’s Chelsea neighbourhood. Ran by Michele, a former prop stylist, and Patrick, a former set designer and builder, you can just imagine the visual delights within their prop house. Discovering Elephant Props was as exciting as winning the golden ticket was for Charlie.

For a while now I’ve been wanting to find a little way to say thank you for the support you’ve given to Bright.Bazaar and my new column in Rue magazine. Whilst I was fortunate enough to meet some friends in New York and thank them in person, I know there are many of you out there who support from afar. So, to say ‘thank you’ and to celebrate the recent launch of Livingetc’s new blog, Life.Style.etc, I’ve teamed up with the magazine to offer you guys a free year’s subscription to Livingetc. Life.Style.etc is well worth a read as each day a different member of their editorial team posts about what has inspired them. As such the content is as diverse as it is entertaining; expect to read about the latest art exhibitions to independent interiors stores, along with a splash of fashionable accessories.

There are two yearlong subscriptions up for grabs for bloggers based in the UK or internationally. Plus, you can enter up to eight times for a chance to win. Pick and choose the ways you would like to enter (feel free to do them all if you like), but be sure to leave a comment for each separate entry. The giveaway will close at midnight on Wednesday 6th October 2010 and the two winners will be chosen at random. Good luck!
