Mr. B’s Decorating Videos on Oprah’s OWN Show!

will-taylor-oprah-magazine-july-2014-issueIt’s certainly not often you get an email from Oprah Winfrey’s team inviting you to share decorating advice on their her online OWN show. I screamed with delight. For at least five minutes. (Sorry neighbours!) As a follow up to the colour tips I wrote for Oprah magazine’s July issue, the OWN show team asked me to share a range of advice that related to various spaces seen in the Bright.Bazaar book. I’ve embedded the four videos into this post and you can hear my tips on everything from decorating with black and white, to perfecting the introduction of accent colour into a scheme. I won’t lie, I was quite nervous (I mean, hello, OPRAH!) but I definitely relaxed into it and really enjoyed making the videos with their team. I hope you will enjoy them and find the advice useful.





If you would like more colour inspiration and advice, there’s stacks of ideas in the Bright.Bazaar book! Thanks, as always, for all your kind and generous support.
