1. A morning stroll along the River Thames in central London is a great way to blow of the cobwebs from the previous night’s excesses!
2. Pink and yellow tulips look fantastic in my old Anthropologie vase.
3. Enjoyed making chocolate-dipped mini madeleines for the first time.
4. The Houses of Parliament and Big Ben looked resplendent against the wintery blue sky.
5. British Airways made me feel like George Clooney for a split second by sending me a card for their Executive Club!
6. My ombre mug from Designers Guild goes perfectly with the blue palette of my new bedroom scheme.
7. I was excited to discover that Bright.Bazaar was named one of the Best Design Blogs by The Sunday Times.
8. My latest print purchase. Why? Because it made me smile when I read it and you know how much I love make-you-smile style!
9. The shape and colour of these mint ceramic bowls are spot on.
10. Perhaps it’s because I’m craving some exotic sunshine (cripes, any sunshine would be good!) but I can’t get enough of this palms pillow.

  1. I love the typography you’ve been adding to your instagrams…might I ask if you use an app or do that in photoshop?

  2. Congratulations on being included in the best design blog list, Will! We’ve got the Sunday Times but I haven’t had a chance to look at it yet, which section are you in so I can save it before the hubbie uses it to start fires?! Oh and can I have everything else pictured in this post including the sunny day in London please? 😉

  3. I love seeing all your cooking capers lovely-we made an almond cake and peanut butter cookies this weekend-and remembered to put in all the ingredients 😉 Huge congrats on the Times listing xxx

  4. Love your pics Will and I love your baking skills – I want to so badly hop on a plane and hang out with you for food and giggles 😉 Well done hun on the Sunday Times listing – no surprise really ;0 x

  5. Hi Will

    There is buckets loads of sunshine here in Australia at the moment and I am just hearing those mint bowls and that coffee cup is sublime. Shell – A Darlings Nest

  6. Loved walking by the Thames when I lived in Whitechapel, it was always lovely. I went to the beach yesterday but it was so rough the beach was closed Adoring the tulips but they’re way too expensive down here for my liking. Now I wish I’d bought The Sunday Times.

  8. I have made madeleine myself for the first time two or three weeks ago. I never realised it was that easy! I love those tulips Will, they really bring a splash of colours in this grey winter.
