The Conran Shop always have such creative and inspiring window displays; it's often the simplicity in their approach that makes them so creatively inspiring. Their current window displays are a feast of colour (que yelps of delight from Mr. Bazaar!) thanks to an abundance of paper decorations hanging from the ceiling. Stylish gifts have been placed upon hot-hued plinths and around larger presents like scooters. There's a huge Christmas tree at the centre of it all with mini paper bell decorations and brightly wrapped presents beneath it. All in all it's pretty wonderful! So, you can imagine my delight when the brand invited me to curate my Top 10 Gifts for 2012. Which, of course, is packed full of colour. I definitely have my eye on the yellow O Clock watch and the Atelier Ruby Silk scarf, but which gift would you buy for the colour lover in your life? Click here to see all my gift picks.

Regular readers here at Bright.Bazaar will know how I take great inspiration from well executed retail displays and visual merchandising. Well, one store that rarely disappoints with their creativity in this arena is The Conran Shop in London. Led by Betsy Smith, the Visual Team have created a Techno Beach scheme for their summer windows. To be frank, it’s pretty much a Bright.Bazaar dream: bold, preppy hues, graphic stripes, delicate textiles, strung cafe lights and rustic vintage touches. Yes, I pretty much moved myself in. (As you can see above, I was caught in the act!) For me, a retail experience that lets you fully immerse yourself in the product is already half way to getting the customer to the checkout. OK, so with a shopaholic like me it’s perhaps a little easier but I still think this largely rings true. If you find yourself in London, slip on your flip flops and take a wonder through this delightful Techno Beach. Which details stand out for you, folks?

The beautiful sunshine in London over the past week or so has left me craving a garden of my own to curate and tender to under the warm summer sunshine. So you can imagine my delight when I happened upon this ‘shed chic’ window display in The Conran Shop here in London. How chic and striking is the black and lime green colour combination of the sheds themselves? I’d never have considered a black she before seeing these but I think they look great! The visual merchandising team have done an outstanding job of displaying their garden product in an inspiring manner. I especially like the little window shelf with the terracotta pots filled with succulents under bell jars. To me there’s something magical and playful about exploring the sheds within the windows. Creative window displays are so inspiring, don’t you think?!
