Writing my books has been some of my most rewarding projects to date and they have now been translated into twelve languages. I promoted my first design book, Bright Bazaar: Embracing Color For Make-You-Smile Style, with a North American book tour and the book became a best-seller on Amazon. The book also received rave reviews from consumer and trade publications, including Publisher’s Weekly and Library Journal. The cover for my second book, Dream Decor, was revealed live on Good Morning America on a billboard in Times Square (pinch me moment!). Dream Decor builds on the content from the first Bright.Bazaar book with beautiful homes that I sourced and styled across the USA, UK and Europe. You can read more about my books below.
Bright Bazaar: Embracing Colour For Make-You-Smile Style
My first book was published worldwide in 2014 and you can see the journey of making it through my posts.
This refreshing take on colour is from one of the world’s leading interior design bloggers, Will Taylor of Bright.Bazaar.
Are you keen to use colour to imprint your personality on the canvas of your home, but lack the confidence to do it? Whether you want to add temporary colour to a rented space or introduce a whole new colour scheme to a home of your own, like a helpful and encouraging friend, Will guides you through making the most of the cornerstone of your life – where you live.
He starts by giving you jumping-off points, from playing with fabric and pattern to layering in lighting, showing you how to learn to trust your colour instincts. Next, from soft and delicate pastel hues to bright and bold colour statements, ten colour cocktails each take on a different palette, arming you with the know-how you need to replicate the look at home. Will shares the personal photographs and memories that inspired his palette and shows you how to translate your inspirations into real life decorating schemes.
He explores specific colour palettes for every room in your home to give you the confidence, knowledge and inspiration to get your colour choices right first time. Packed with personality and heart, playful but informative, engaging but practical, Bright Bazaar is brimming with ideas that work.
Dream Decor: Styling a Cool, Creative and Comfortable Home, Wherever You Live
“ Will understands the life-enhancing abilities of colour. He’s a true talent with a keen eye.” — Jonathan Adler
This book will take readers on an inspiring journey to discover fifteen dé cor destinations that each have a distinct and inspired style. From the colourful cool of Miami Brights to the eclectic urban hipster warehouses of Brooklyn and the nautical feel of the Hamptons and Normandy, a diverse mix of dé cor styles will be explored. The homes will mirror their surrounding environments, and room analysis for every space in the home will show readers how they can recreate their favourite looks and styles no matter where they live.
Our homes are a reflection of how we live and nothing impacts on that more than where we live, and the lifestyle we lead. This book will take readers on an inspiring and tactile journey to discover the decorating style that represents their personal style, all demonstrated via Will’ s personal and evocative travel imagery, charming illustrations and personality-packed homes across the globe. By inspiring readers to look to their surroundings and call on their own travel memories and personal journeys, the book will be the practical yet playful travel companion the reader needs to create their own ‘ Dream Dé cor’ style.
