This space is a great example of how the introduction of colour and pattern can pull a space together. The wide stripe fabric off the window seat pad visually extends the window, pulling the eye into the corners, creating a feeling of space. It also serves to frame the window, making the view through it part of a feature in itself. Upon the floor, the patchwork-meets-kilim rug adds texture and pattern to an otherwise pared back space. Simple additions such as these are what make a scheme special, and I for one would love to relax here with a good book and a cup of fresh coffee!

  1. I love this- such a perfect place to curl up with my Kindle and a nice cup of tea. Just another thing to add to my list for an ideal home! Have a wonderful day.

  2. Who doesn't love a cozy window seat for a cup of nice afternoon tea and reading our favourite novel. Love this particular one with the wide red stripes and that kilim just adds so much character and old world charm to this all white space. LOVE!

    Happy weekend Mr!

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.
