1. This is the most gorgeous rustic gate I’ve ever seen. Add in the blue skies and seemingly endless vines, and this made for a picture perfect #mrbazaartravels moment in Menorca.Casa-Batllo-Gaudi-Barcelona
2. Casa Batllo is my favourite of the Gaudi buildings in Barcelona.Gray-Malin-Le-Meridien-Ra-Barcelona-Follow-Gray
3. If you follow Bright.Bazaar on Instagram and Twitter then you may have seen the adventures I had with Gray Malin at the absolutely stunning Le Meridien Ra Hotel and Spa in Barcelona. I’ll be blogging the full recap later this month, so stay tuned for A LOT of fun colour!Wine-Menorca
4. It felt so amazing to return to the vineyard in Menorca where my heart mate and I married last year. I’m shooting a house here for my second Bright.Bazaar book this week, and I’m so pleased we were able to share a day together beforehand on our special island.Binifadet-Menorca
5. The interior of the Binifadet vineyard is on point – love all the textures and design classics peppered throughout.Anchor-door-sitges-spain
6. The moment I saw this door in Sitges, Spain I died and went to nautical heaven!Blue-walls-sitges-barcelona-spain

9. Valspar Paint’s Young Designer of The Year competition is now open for entries! I’m one of the panelists judging the competition and the winner will win £5,000 towards their studies, or to invest in their interior design career. They will also have the opportunity to realise their design in a real home, working with myself and Marianne Cotterill, interiors stylist from Livingetc magazine. The winner’s work will also be showcased in the October issue of Livingetc magazine – a fantastic platform to launch your design career! You can enter here.LCDQ-Legends-2015
10. I am thrilled to be one of the social media ambassadors for this year’s Legends of La Cienega event in LA. This year’s theme is ‘Where Muses Dwell’, so I’m super excited to see all the inspirational window displays that America’s top designers create. I can’t wait to see lots of you there – you can register for the keynotes and showroom programs right here! If you can’t make it, be sure to follow along my adventures on Twitter and Instagram!
1. Spring is the best time to ride through London, especially on a blue skied, sunny day. How gorgeous is all that pink blossom?Flower-market
2. I think my permanent social media status should be: Always colour hunting!bright-bazaar-book-the-times
3. The Times newspaper named the Bright.Bazaar book as one of the best books for your ottoman. Not only that but they also wrote how the prime minster’s wife, Samantha Cameron, was recently pictured in a rare interview sitting on a mustard-yellow sofa with graphic animal cushions that’s very similar to the cover of my book, which is my old living room! They said: “If it’s good enough for the prime minster’s stylish wife, then it’s good enough for us.” It’s so exciting to see such a huge endorsement for the book a whole year after it was published – I am thrilled!Colourful-houses-in-london
4. London was on #makeyousmilestyle fire on Saturday afternoon.Paddington-bear-london
5. I randomly spotted this tiny Paddington Bear soft toy in a window box and it made me smile.Whippet
6. If I see a Whippet while walking through Primrose Hill high street (or, frankly, any high street) I will run after it and ask its owner if I can have a picture with it. This fellow is called Merlin and it made my weekend meeting him!Valspar-3d-house
7. The interview I did with the Guardian newspaper about the 3D House I designed for Valspar Paint went live.bottlecloth-tablecloth

1. My excitement levels rocket when seeing a huge blue coloured wall!Loaf-flapjack-sofa
2. I miss my old yellow couch (the one on the UK cover of my first book) but I’m thinking the Flapjack sofa from Loaf could be an equally delightful place to perch.West-Elm-Store-Tottenham-Court-Road-London
3. I was impressed by the new season install at West Elm London, plus there’s stacks more natural light now they’ve opened up the windows in the Market area – well worth a look!Bryon-Hamburgers-Rathbone-Place-London
4. I was inspired by the brave and bold colour choice for the decor in Byron Hamburgers on Rathbone Place, London.Lindsey-Lang-Towels-John-Lewis
5. These towels designed by Lindsey Lang for John Lewis are perfect for adding a graphic hit of hue and pattern into a bathroom.Leif-ceramics
6. Handmade in Brooklyn and delightfully bright, these colourful cups stopped me in my tracks.Green-car
