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.
At first it was the gallery wall that caught my eye in this delightful Los Angeles home, then I saw the dramatic library-meets-dining room space, which is a great example of how to use colour to zone a space for two different uses. The charcoal grey works wonders on the floor-to-ceiling bookshelves; the hot pink seat cushions accent the charcoal hue to great effect whilst also centering the middle of the room as a dining area. Finally, I felt inspired by the zesty, citrus hues of the home’s light-flooded living room. Interest is added to a simple white sofa through colour and pattern, and vintage furniture sits alongside modern buys – a mix that works with ease. What do you like about this colourful home?
