1. I’ve fallen in love with the Oxus fabric from Soane – isn’t that couch a beauty?! I like the juxtaposition of the traditional lines with the contemporary fabric.
2. With the nights drawing in, I stocked up on some colourful candles to keep things feeling cosy.
3. Mr. Bazaar is the kind of looser who gets enjoyment out of matching his jumper with his watch strap. I know, simple things…!
4. Speaking of simple things, how is that a polka dot print always manges to bring a smile to my face?
5. Anthropologie’s visual merchandising makes me want to move into the store!
6. Rachel Khoo’s The Little Paris Kitchen makes for a wonderful Sunday morning read.
7. I’d like to hang three of these pendant bulbs in a row over my kitchen counter top.
8. The Poet Sofa has the ability to make my heart beat faster!
9. I love the mix of type and colour in Baines & Fricker’s take on the fruit crate.
10. This Diana Lomography camera in a Hudson’s Bay print is a Must Have Mr. Bazaar Accessory!

Have to try and make these DIY copper foil cards.

An amazing magazine cover.

I can’t quite believe that Adore Home magazine is celebrating it’s 2nd birthday already, it seems like just yesterday that I was reading the first issue. Well, two years have passed and the team at Adore Home are set to release their 2nd birthday issue on Monday next week – and lucky us, as we get to take a sneak peek in the super colourful issue right here today on Bright.Bazaar. Kicking off proceedings is a tour of Armchair Collective in New South Wales, a destination store that sells fresh blooms, homewares and food. Should I ever find myself in Australia I’d love to explore here on a Saturday morning. Up next is another shop tour, this time of Kristy Mclaughlin’s Sydney store, Kristy Lee Interiors – I’m majorly crushing on the Cockatoo lamp base! I’m really looking forward to reading the piece on the Mr & Mrs G River bar that was designed by one of my favourite designers, Anna Spiro. Anna’s use of colour and pattern is always right on point, and this Brisbane location is no exception. Rounding out the sneak peek is a colourful kid’s bedroom designed by Maria Barros. I don’t care if it was designed for a child’s bedroom, I would adopt that blue/yellow work area in a heartbeat! Thank you, Adore Home, for this lovely weekend treat, I can’t wait to read the full issue on Monday. What’s inspiring you from this peek, folks? Happy weekend!
