Last night I had the serious good fortune of being invited to a party celebrating Will Taylor’s Bright Bazaar book with Jonathan Adler at the JA store down in the West Village. It was so much fun! First of all, the store is AMAZINGLY GORGEOUS. Bright, colorful, full of whimsical items and beautiful furniture and glamorous lighting…I wanted to move in. Then Will’s book is amazingly gorgeous as well. The photography is beautiful, the interiors featured are so fun and eclectic and colorful…it’s a unique, happy book that would be the highlight of any coffee table. I seriously can’t wait to sit down with it and give it a full read, but the images I saw just by flipping through have already captivated me in a big way. Will is so talented and his English accent is over the top adorable (note to self: move to London and marry a British guy ASAP). I was also lucky to meet a ton of fantastic ladies, some whose blogs I already know and enjoy (like Mackenzie, Carly, and Hallie), and others who are new to me (like Susan of Fleurishing and Rose of Blonde in This City) who I’m thrilled to have met (love finding great new blogs!).
If you’re on the fence about getting this book, I urge you to check it out in your local bookstore. Like many things, it is truly much more charming and captivating in “the flesh” than on the computer screen.
