a colourful adventure part 2... the Bright Bazaar book launch April 24 2014

So yesterday I spoiled you with the soppy stuff about my little adventure to London, now its time to read about the exciting stuff that made me hop on that train to London in the first place!

The Bright Bazaar book launch party! Wooo hooo, I'm getting all excited again just thinking about it, eeek!

 

 

I've been a big fan of Will and his work for quite sometime now so when I received an invite to the book launch party I was absolutely thrilled and excited and probably squealed a little bit and probably did a happy dance around the kitchen too (poor Mr C has seen me throwing quite a few shapes around the kitchen table lately!) But its not everyday a girl gets invited to London to celebrate the number one best selling interior book of the moment! [insert more squealing here!]

 

 

This is the main man himself signing my book! He was as sweet and as lovely as I knew he would be 'inside and out' and I guess it would be pretty impossible to write such a happy, colourful book without having a big happy colourful personality to match. He greeted me with a gorgeous big smile and a big big hug... (I may have been a teeny weeny bit star struck so Will, I hope I didn't squeeze you too tight!) ahh, so much loveliness! 

 

 

I had to wait a whole two weeks to get my hands on a copy of the book, as I wanted to buy it at the launch party to make sure I soaked up the whole magical experience, as well as buying a ton of other gorgeous goodies while I was there! I've wanted to visit West Elm for a very long time and I absolutely wasn't disappointed. So many lovely things in one gorgeous space. If you haven't been before and you like interior stores full to the brim of beautiful products and home wares then you will love West Elm, it was the perfect venue for this party. 

 

 

Ok. So back to this amazing book! 

Why is this one so special? New Interior books are launched all the time at the moment, but there seems to be a much bigger buzz surrounding this one.

Well first take a sneaky peek at some of the pages...

 

 

Yum. Yum. Yum. And more yum. 

 

 

Every single beautiful stylish page is packed full of colour and ideas (obviously!) and colour instantly makes you feel good and happy and lovely and fills you right up to the top with smiles! And this gorgeous book is written in such a warm and friendly way its really easy to fall head over heels in love with it and to connect with Mr Bright Bazaar himself, the super lovely Will Taylor. 

 

 

I couldn't live without colour in my life and my home and pretty shades of yellow and pink and mint green and blue and orange and neons all feature very heavily in my work too (there really aren't many colours I don't love, ok, I don't do brown!) so I know this wonderful book will continue to inspire me for a very very long time. In fact I must confess something here, I've had the book for just over a week now and I haven't finished it yet, its just far too good and far too exciting to read it all in one sitting. I have to look at it a few pages at a time to savour every moment and to enjoy it all properly! 

Embracing colour for 'Make you smile style' delivers just that, its full of heart and soul and magic and gorgeousness and stylish homes.... all of my favourite things! 

I want to say a huge big thank you to Will and West Elm London for giving me such a colourful adventure, I truly loved every minute and I met so many amazing people who I'm sure will become great friends too.

And if you haven't bought the book already do it now, it will brighten your day! 

Big love
