Mr. B Talks Colour In West Elm’s Catalogue


Market picks: fig.1, Bentwood pendant | fig.2, Painted Stripe fabric | fig.3, Saddle office chair | fig.4, Martini side table | fig.5, Sarah Campbell reversible pillow | fig.6, Sydney Studio multicoloured dinnerware | fig.7, Abacus Dhurrie

Towards the end of last year I was delighted to be approached by West Elm to appear in their January 2013 catalogue alongside superstar blogger Holly Becker from Decor8. In the catalogue Holly and I discuss the benefits of decorating with colour as well as the pitfalls you need to be aware of and where you can just let loose with your paint brush! I’ve seen a few Instagrams and tweets from Stateside friends about the catalogue but my copy only arrived in the mail while I was away in Stockholm, so it was a lovely surprise to arrive home to find the finished copy waiting on my doormat. If you’ve not been able to get a copy and would like to take a look at our natter about decorating with colour, you can view the online version, here. You can also catch our pins on West Elm’s Globalist Mix Pinterest board. So here’s a big blogging ‘high-five’ to Holly and West Elm for this super fun project! OK, I’m headed off to drool over their colourful Dhurries. Yes-freaking-please!

    Hi Will!

    When West Elm approached me to lead this campaign and asked me to select the bloggers that I would like to ask to join me, you were one of the first on my list – I am so happy it worked out! I hope this gives you new eyes on your blog, too!

    Have a wonderful weekend!

      @Kimberley – Thanks, hun! They do ship most of their pieces to the UK but I would love to be able to go into their stores for the full West Elm experience on a regular basis. If they do come over I know who to call for a West Elm date! πŸ˜‰ xx
