Books: Dream Decor by Bright Bazaar
Following on from the success of his first book, Will Taylor, blogger, TV presenter, stylist, traveller and very good friend of mine, takes a revealing look inside homes across the globe in his second offering – Dream Décor: Styling a Cool, Creative and Comfortable Home Wherever You Live.
Not only does Dream Décor offer inspiration on how to translate a stylish look for any home, anywhere. It inspires you to travel, and to open your eyes to the wealth of decor ideas around the world. It’s absolutely packed full of inspirational, accessible design from across Europe and America. From the Hamptons to Tuscany, New York to Paris, Sweden to Spain, Santorini to Miami, Los Angeles to London, a diverse range of glorious interiors ideas are explored in the personality-packed homes Will visited with photographer Andrew Boyd.
The book starts by taking the home decorator through the how-to of fundamental elements that make up any interior design scheme, including pattern, texture, colour, lighting, furniture and accessories. Will then takes the reader on a design journey to discover the style that represents them personally. By encouraging readers to look to their surroundings and call on their own memories and personal adventures, Will shows how easy it can be to discover a decorating style, and also how to recreate a favourite look in any room no matter where we live.
The ‘Dream Styles’ chapters break down the elements that make up a room, along with a plethora of helpful design tips and decor know-how, ensuring readers will then feel confident in their own decorating projects, whether it’s the Mediterranean Marvel, Coastal Retreat, Curious Collector, Hollywood Chic, Italian Rustic, Petite Parisienne or Scandi Comfort look that catches their eye.
Ok, so I’m a teensy bit biased, but if you’re into interiors (and I know you are), you love to travel, and you are inspired by beautiful photo’s, you will love this book as much as I do.
