If you’re like me you’ll probably think of your home as a sanctuary from the world; a place where you can shut off and relax. Casual Living is the latest offering from best-selling author and interiors expert Judith Wilson, and provides ideas for two key looks around this idea – Country Casual and City Casual. The books details the different ingredients you need to create a relaxed and comfortable look for your home, before going onto show you how they translate into rooms throughout the house. I’ve picked out some of my favourite looks and spaces from the book – which space calls out the most to you?

  1. I absolutely love this book…got it for x-mas. The cooks kitchen is so beautiful and functional…only wish I had similar!

  2. Loving this post and the a fabulous variety of design options.

    Have a wee addiction with your blog – it is my little escape for the day. Thanks xx

  3. although the idea of a blackboard wall sounds slightly messy to me…i love that image/space because it strikes me as belonging to a person who is always very inspired (and thats someone i want to be!)

  4. I've got several of these rooms in my scrapbook! Love the kitchens, think I need to get my hands on this book. x

  5. I would have to fall under the vintage ethnic..and I do love the kitchen with the open shelves!!


  6. I definitely like the country look of the bathroom – I think that's the way my home is leaning theses days

  7. The first and last one. Guess I'm a city girl who longs for the country. Have a lovely weekend Will. xx

  8. I really do like your book recommendations…even though you're costing me a fortune and I'm running out of shelf space!

Hey, I'm Will

Welcome to Bright.Bazaar, my make-you-smile style corner of the internet. I’ve been sharing my love of beautiful design, feel-good homes, everyday style, inspiring travel and, pretty much everything in between, since 2009. As well as working as a content creator, I write interior design books and edit a bi-weekly e-newsletter called Smile Mail. I live in New York City with my heartmate and can often be found listening to Madonna’s Confessions album and dreaming up my next home renovation project.
