There are three things I love in this world: impeccable designs, bright colors and British accents. Will Taylor, a.k.a. Mr. Bazaar, the editor of the design blog Bright.Bazaar and an interior props stylist based out of London embodies my three favorites. First of all, pop over to his homepage and just look at all that lovely turquoise and orange. Will doesn’t just love well-designed interiors and bright hues; he loves well-designed interiors because of their bright accents, accessories and features. “You only have to show me a yellow vase and I’ll go weak at the knees,” he says. Will thinks beige is boring, color is everything and that nothing can’t be fixed with a little mood board “cocktail”. (My favorite color cocktail: the Golden Shimmer.)

If you don’t already ‘like’ Bright.Bazaar on Facebook, follow Will on Twitter or subscribe to receive daily blog updates, then you, my friend, are missing out. With winter just a few months away, you’re going to need a daily color shock treatment and Bright.Bazaar is the place to go. Here are three reasons why Bright.Bazaar is part of my daily routine and why it should be a part of yours, too.

1. Color, Color, COLOUR

Let’s just state the obvious here. Color. He loves it; I love it. It’s a fact that certain hues affect our mood and can make us happy, confident and energetic. So why not start off the day with a bold dose of color, something you know will uplift your spirits? Daily, Will shares his favorite colorful finds, from interiors and his strolls through London shops and markets. His finds are always right on trend and dapple in plenty of design styles to satisfy everyone’s cravings. From vibrant primaries and bold neons to candy-coated pastels and deep, saturated beauties, Will celebrates color in all forms, even if it’s simply the base of a light fixture or the seat cushion of a chair.

2. Will’s Weekends

My weekends are either embarrassingly bland or pretty cool. Will’s weekends seem to always be perfect. His weekly feature 10 Things I Learned & Loved This Weekend is filled with picturesque strolls through London, stops at quaint design boutiques around the city and at least two or three killer product finds for those of us in the States who need a Monday morning fix. It’s literally the ideal way to start any work week. While I absolutely love his unique and flavorful finds, I really enjoy his own personal weekend photography. It truly captures the essence of a weekend. Relax and unwind. Make time for rejuvenation through inspiration. That’s a perfect weekend, right?

3. Home Tours to Lust Over

Sometimes looking at stunning interiors makes unlocking my front door the worst part of the day. Other times, it’s just the motivation I need to switch gears and unleash my inner Candice Olson. Thank you, Bright.Bazaar for your fabulous home tours. If you thought you were going to be “stuck” in London for this blog hop across the pond, you’re so wrong. You’ll be visiting a chic countryside home, a vibrant Tribeca loft, a colorful houseboat (my personal favorite) and a fiery beach house. The photography is stunning, and the interiors are nothing less than delightfully colorful.

    If you are looking for novel, bright and fun room addition, definitely think about hanging a Caribbean jumbo hammock chair. You can get a high end one from Beachside Hammocks http://www.beachsidehammocks.com. They are made of 100 percent soft-spun polyester and you can even wash it in the machine. It is super soft and is a chair and hammock combo, which means you can sit in it with your feet touching the ground, or completely lay down in a full stretch with plenty of bedding to spare. I bought one for the patio and ended up buy two more for my kid's rooms. The colors are awesome and would work well in just about any bedroom or den. Really fun, relaxing and different.
