In the four and a half years I’ve been writing this blog I’ve rarely taken anytime off, but after an insanely busy year working on the first Bright.Bazaar book on top of all my full time freelance commitments I’m in dire need of a little break! I need to let my mind be free of work for a while and recharge the batteries for some creativity in the fall season that lies ahead. My heartmate and I are headed on an adventure to a place we have long dreamed of visiting together. I’m so excited and can’t believe we are actually visiting after years of dreaming about this corner of the world! If you follow Mr. Bazaar on Instagram then you may already know where we going but if not, why not jump on over and join me in my holiday adventures? I’ll be posting updates and inspirations from my travels over on Instagram, so I guess I’ll still be painting the Internet bright a little bit while I’m gone! Thank you all for keeping me going throughout this crazily exciting and busy year – you all rock. I’m already excited to get back and share my colourful inspirations but in the meantime I’m sending massive, colourful hugs to you all!

  8. Enjoy your break, Will. It’s always nice to take short breaks and turn off the computer. I spent mine in your country, in a wonderful cottage in the West Midlands, where I had never been before. There was inspiration all around. Just lovely.

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.
