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.

This colour cocktail is a timeless classic. A fail-safe combination that magically always works. It sees varying shades of black combine to create striking schemes worthy of the glossiest of shelter publications. This monochrome interior holds an eternal style card; an everlasting trump card, continually outlasting the latest trend or must-have styles. Here we see the scheme at work in a home office space, where jet black hues have been used in matt finishes to maintain a masculine feel – adding in gloss surfaces would soften the look. Meanwhile, graphic pattern is used as this lends itself well to a striking black and white colour palette, which all helps to create the monochrome magic. I’m so excited to see Colour Cocktail return – cheers, friends!
