Have you had one of those ‘pinch me’ moments recently? This was exactly how I felt when a tweet popped into my Twitter feed on Saturday saying that Bright.Bazaar had been included in a list of the Top 50 Interiors Websites, which was a feature running on the front-page of The Daily Telegraph’s weekend Property supplement. Excited yelping over, I rushed out to find a copy and to my delight I discovered that Bright.Bazaar had been named the 7th most inspiring interiors website in the world for design inspiration. Wowzers, talk about how to knock Mr. Bazaar’s socks off right there and then! I couldn’t believe it and actually felt quite emotional about it once it started to sink in. I’ve always hoped that my addiction to colour would rub off and perhaps inspire others to embrace hue more in their lives, so to be named by a major national newspaper as a must-visit site for colour and design inspiration was a very proud moment. Without a doubt, Bright.Bazaar wouldn’t be half as colourful, energetic or fun if it wasn’t for all of you following along and sharing in my ‘hooked on hue’ adventures! Just as I blogged back in March I really do smile when I think of the wonderful friendships and experiences blogging has brought to my life. It’s a public holiday here in the UK so I’m off to bake up a storm in the kitchen. Have a wonderful week, friends!

Hey, I'm Will

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.
