1. Enjoying a morning coffee from my Story Hotel ceramic mug that I brought home from my recent trip to Stockholm.
2. Crazy about this navy and pink colour combination I spotted in London on Saturday.
3. I had a colour crush moment at the Liberty London flower shop.
4. It felt great to go on a long walk through the English countryside on Sunday afternoon to enjoy the beautiful spring weather.
5. I was excited to see my interview about the Bright.Bazaar book (UK edition / USA edition) on the back page of Good Homes magazine.
6. How beautiful are these pink roses?
7. Enjoyed an amazing sunday lunch of pan-spiced cod with sweet potato, chickpeas and a mint and citrus dressing.
8. I wish I had space for the Everett Loveseat in my apartment – super cute (and comfy!).
9. The industrial yellow pendants on Skinflint caught my colour-loving eye.
10. As a lover of all things nautical (for example, just check out the temporary tattoo I wore for my friend’s 30th birthday party celebrations on Saturday!) I couldn’t resist these Hello Sailor greetings cards.

    Love the nautical look too, Will. I was in Ikea this weekend, and their spring collection includes a nod to nautical with accessories like ship flag printed candles, trays, and napkins. Cute and inexpensive.
