Bright.Bazaar’s good friend Tom celebrates his birthday today – Happy Birthday Tom! As he’s all the way over in New York on secondment, B.B felt it was only right to have a big apple flavoured post in honour of the big day. So, as a birthday present, B.B thought it would be nice to do a virtual makeover of his temporary apartment.
The apartment needed to become a home from home; a sanctuary from the bustling city below. This called for an injection of colour and personality, achieved through a calming colour range coupled with warm accessories. Stunning, 21st floor views of the city were the inspiration for the scheme, encouraging a palette of greys and golds to reflect the skyscrapers outside. In keeping with the understated theme, small flashes of colour are used to break up the neutrals. A hint of drama is added through vintage photographic lighting and deep purples. Collections of black and white photographs are propped up against the walls to create a relaxed finish to the occasional furniture. …So, in the words of Alan Sugar, is Bright.Bazaar hired or fired?!
