10 Things I Learned & Loved This Weekend


1. Headed to Home Barn to seek out some pieces for the #brightbazaarcottage we move into in a few weeks. (Psst! Take a tour of Home Barn.)
2. This vibrant tabletop in The Conran Shop had me weak at the knees – a colour lover’s heaven!
3. Loved these strikingly bright balloons, which I also spotted at Conran.
4. I was excited to see my Bright Bazaar book used as a prop in West Elm London’s room sets. I was like: “Look! That’s my living room, wow!”. I’m not sure when it will all start to feel real?!
5. The lemon and verbena scent from this soy candle is perfect for lazy summer weekends.
6. I realised it’s only two weeks until I get to marry my handsome fiancΓ©. So.Freaking.Excited!
7. Although I’m excited to move, I’m going to miss the serenity of our master bedroom in the current apartment.
8. I discovered the cheerful hues of JAB Anstoetz’s Sorbet textile collection.
9. This print of Barcelona is my favourite photography from Sivan Askayo’s new Intimacy Under the Wire’s collection for Artfully Walls.
10. Our new cottage has low ceilings and so we have to sell our industrial metal cabinet. You can see lots of pictures (and a video) of it, right here. Let me know if you’d be interested in buying it! Update: This has now sold. Thanks for all your interest!

      @Tara – Thanks for the kind words, Tara! The video is only 18 months old but it feels like it was such a long time ago! πŸ™‚

    Will you’re very calm considering that you’re moving and marrying around the same time! It’s actually quite symbolic though isn’t it? I bet you’re still pinching yourself about the book and I can’t wait to visit Home Barn one day. Hugs from Auckland. Mel xx

    Oh I’d love a peek inside Home Barn…looks awesome from the outside, can only image what it’s like on the inside! Kate

    That home barn looks awesome, hope you new cottage is lovely!!! Looking forward to seeing pics

    Suuuper bummed I am not local at all, bec I am dying over that cabinet. I don’t think shipping overseas will be remotely cost-effective.

    Congrats on your wedding, and I hope you’re enjoying your honeymoon!
