Will Taylor, Bright Bazaar Founder and Remodelista Judge

June 16, 2015

We’re delighted to introduce the second of our guest judges in this year’s

will taylor bright bazaar lonny 0

A UK native who lives in London, Will is a self-described “gentleman hooked on hue”–he founded Bright Bazaar in 2009 with the motto “Beige is boring.” His site features interiors profiles and home styling tips, and last week, he unveiled a redesigned Bright Bazaar to showcase two more of his passions: travel and fashion. (In the photo above, Will shows readers how to wear bright primary colors.)

Last year, Will published his first book, Bright Bazaar: Embracing Color for Make-You-Smile Style. The Amazon best seller is now out in five languages, and Will is currently at work on his second book.

To keep up with Will, go to Bright Bazaar and join his devoted followings on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and more than 2.5 million followers on Pinterest.
