Looking for color inspiration and tips for your home? Here are some sample pages from the Bright Bazaar book to get you started!
*Starred Review* British designer-blogger Taylor “speaks” in color; he is 100 percent invested in hues and shades of all dimensions. His new book is a workbook for unleashing your inner color palette with the secret shades you’ve wanted to explore at home but were afraid to. In a program derived from his blog, Taylor gives us a safe place to experiment, through his three chapters and, almost literally, tons of photographs. He starts small by warming us up to the idea of bright colors, showing small ways to colorize a home, like painted furniture or an outstanding front door. Most whimsical are his “color cocktails,” in which he mixes and matches unlikely hues, such as sunshine yellow with salmon pink, to spark inspiration. Top honors go to such colors as “lime divine” (chartreuse and azure) or “strawberry split” (cardinal red and Greek blue). Employing a pragmatic perspective, he goes from room to room in a house and demonstrates how even the tiniest touch of color will enliven a space, whether kitchen or children’s room. Tongue-in-cheek yet eminently practical advice is offered here. --Barbara Jacobs

” ―West Elm
“Adapted from a blog of the same name, this book embodies Taylor's bold and whimsical approach to color for interior design. His aesthetic is youthful, a mix of Dutch mid-century modern and vintage shabby chic. At the heart of the book Taylor turns mixologist, divining so-called 'color cocktails' that blend 'Licorice and Vermilion' into 'Tangerine Dream,' strains 'Aureolin Yellow and Azure Blue' into 'The Cerulean Splash,' and flips 'Mint Cream and French Rose' into 'Mint Bliss.' Taylor blends the personal with the professional, sharing photos of his colorful apartment, telling personal tales of trips to Spain, and recounting childhood memories of going to the theater with his mother. The book could have turned into another blog-turned-book, but Taylor's keen eye for color paired with dazzling photographs raises the bar more than high enough: 'With the strawberry season in full swing many of the stalls were awash with a sea of red berries,' Taylor writes, opposite a brilliant photograph of a fire hydrant, 'framed by the wash of blue on the wall behind it.' Taylor's color-democratic vision embodies the idea that inspiration is everywhere and meant for everyone.” ―Publishers Weekly
