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.
The August issue of Livingetc is my favourite issue out of all of 2011’s offerings to date. It quickly won my affections with it’s mix of summer homes, hot hues and bold patterns. My favourite features included the ‘Decorating with Stripes’ and the ’40 Fabulous Rooms’ stories, but it was the home tours that shone through. Inside this issue you will find an exclusive tour of Bobbi Brown’s coastal home, who launched a worldwide make up brand in her name. Her home is a lesson in how to make a nautical palette of blue and white work without looking cliched. There’s also a bright and airy north London home that features bold primary colours, but Sibella Court’s new Sydney home is the standout space – her creativity is hugely inspiring. What do you like about this issue?
