After an insanely busy year travelling through countless countries (click here to browse my colourful inspirations from overseas) to create the Bright.Bazaar book, 2013 is now drawing to a close. I’m back home at my mum’s for the Christmas holiday before heading over to Paris to celebrate NYE with friends. Yesterday I helped my mum add a few final festive flourishes to the house. Remember the post I did on how I styled her country kitchen dresser? Well, we searched out some pieces she liked to give the display a Christmas twist; it’s amazing what a simple scattering of mistletoe, red berries and tea lights can do to bring about that all important festive feeling, don’t you think? Before I leave to start our prep for the Big Day (my fiancé and I are cooking the Christmas dinner for 10 people – yikes!), I wanted to send my heartfelt thanks for all your support, encouraging words and inspiring blog posts over the past twelve months – consider this a big, bright hug from Mr. Bazaar! I’m looking forward to more colourful adventures with you in 2014, and in the meantime I’ll be posting updates from my festive break on Bright.Bazaar’s Instagram feed.

Perfect touches! I wish I could find fresh mistletoe around here. Alas, the Phoenix desert doesn’t support such things. Seeing these lovely photos gives me more holiday joy than trying to make due with the plastic junk the stores try to pass off as mistletoe around here! Thank you for sharing.

I seem to remember one of your first blog posts being a re-design of your mums dresser. From small acorns and all that! Have a lovely Christmas and am looking forward to your book next year.

It looks like a wonderful Christmas, but cooking for 10 is always intimidating – know it was delicious!! Thank you for all of the beautiful inspiration you’ve given and I wish you all the best in 2014!!

I totally see where you got the talent from to style everything so fun, colourful and beautiful!! ;-) Your mother did a great job in styling the whole place for Christmas, it looks absolutely gorgeous.
I hope your Christmas was sweet and relaxing and your 2014 more colourful, bright, magical and beautiful than ever!!
Big hugs, Inge x

All things nice...
