proust q & a…bright bazaar



Will Taylor is the dashing gent behind the blog Bright Bazaar, based in the UK. I discovered his talents recently via our virtual friend Kayla, and his blog gives me mucho color inspiration! In addition to his cheerful blogging, he is a columnist for Rue Magazine and Sweet Paul, a stylist, and seems to be involved in all things fabulous. He just returned from a jaunt to Paris (where he took amazing photos), and I can’t wait to see what Mr. Bazaar is involved in next!


Your chief characteristic.


Your favourite colour and flower.

Yellow is my favorite color and as for blooms, I love Craspedias (or Billy Balls as my friend Justina from Compai tells me they are called in the States!) 

Your idea of happiness.

Good health, and a lifetime spent with my dearest chap (with plenty of colorful surroundings, tasty olives and creative crafting)! 

Your favourite food & drink.

Pasta, pasta, pasta. Any form, anytime, anyplace! As for drink, I do love fresh black coffee in the mornings and you can’t beat a cold glass of vino on a hot day!

Your biggest flaw.

Being super duper moody when I am hungry!

For what fault do you have the most toleration?

People who are moody when hungry. I mean, I’d be a bit naughty if I didn’t!

Your favourite qualities in friends.

Loyalty, honesty and the ability to make me howl with laughter. Basically, if I’m out of line, I’d like a friend to feel comfortable enough to tell me, and you can’t beat those moments when you are crying with laughter.

Where would you like to live?

Whilst I love living in the UK, with it’s inspiring history and divine countryside, I’d be lying if I didn’t say how much I dream of spending some time living in New York City.

Your favourite occupation.

Right now I am over the moon to be writing and styling for interiors titles-the opportunity to be creative in a field I love is something I remind myself to be thankful for even when I’m really snowed under with work.

Your favourite hero (or heroine) in real-life.

My delightful partner-he is such a joy.

  1. I can’t even remember at this point how I first came across Will’s blog but I’ve loved it since the first time I jumped on. He’s got a great eye for color and design, he’s always upbeat and he’s super sweet. Excellent combo.

  2. Aw hooray! I love how I played a role in “introducing” the two of you. Will’s answers here make me love him even more…and I didn’t think that was possible. What a gem he is. I feel lucky to call him (and you!) a friend.

  3. Aww, this is such a great q&a!! I adore Will’s blog, every time his Sunday bright links and 10 things I learned this weekend posts pop up in my reader I can’t click on them fast enough! He sounds like such a sweetheart both on his blog and in the q&a!!

  4. Hello there! This is such a great Q&A.. I just recently came across Will’s blog and am so in love it! He’s so sweet and talented and I just can’t get enough of him. Thanks so much for sharing!

    Glad I landed on your blog too… your photography is beautiful, btw. :)

    xo, Jeanne

  5. Hi Jeanne…welcome! I’m so happy you discovered Will’s blog, it’s one of my favs! Thank you for your kind words, hope to “see” you again soon! :)

  6. Thank you, Susan, for having me as part of this series and to your lovely comments for their touching comments.

  7. Thanks for sharing and what a wonderful interview! I have to agree Beige is Boring and I cringe when I hear people hesitating to use splashes of brilliant color in their decor. Color is not something to fear.
