Book Review: Dream Decor by Will Taylor

It’s finally arrived! After months of waiting for the latest interior design book by Will Taylor to hit the shelves (and putting my name down for a copy really early) I was already too excited when the delivery finally dropped onto the doormat. Unwrapping the parcel felt like Christmas and, having avoided reading any other reviews or peeking at the pages, I had no idea what was inside. Cancel all my meetings – Dream Décor was finally in my hands and I was ready to read.dream decor will taylor interior design book review_-24 dream decor will taylor interior design book review_-12This book is the second publication by Will Taylor of interior design blog Bright Bazaar. I’ve been a fan for years and this inspirational site is one of the first places I go for new season design ideas and makeover projects. I loved the colour-packed pages of Will’s first book Bright Bazaar: Embracing Colour For Make-You-Smile Style so I was confident that I’d enjoy reading Dream Décor just as much. I snapped some photos before I’d even opened the book – I think you can tell from the photos just how keen I am to flick through it – and then I settled down for an afternoon of browsing through Will’s latest release.dream decor will taylor interior design book review_-25 dream decor will taylor interior design book review_-17I’d spotted a few news updates online about the launch of the book, which took place on 12th May at West Elm London on Tottenham Court Road, and I SO wish I was the type of blogger to get invited to these kind of events! I noticed a few of my blogging pals posting pre-release photos of the book on their Instagram and I wondered how they got hold of them. Jealous, or what?? Even so, I still managed to get my copy of book on the very day it was released. Dream Decor: Styling a Cool, Creative and Comfortable Home, Wherever You Live hit bookshelves all around the country on 17th May and I can’t believe it’s taken me nearly a week to write this little review for you. dream decor will taylor interior design book review_-26 dream decor will taylor interior design book review_-18So let’s start with the cover. It’s beautifully adorned with one of my favourite interior design trends of the year – watercolour stripes. It looks fabulously nautical and hints at the content to come; there are plenty of pages of coastal inspiration inside the book and it even kicks off with a photoshoot of Will’s own seaside-esque home office. With photography by Andrew Boyd and beautiful real-home locations from around the globe, you can tell that this book had a higher production budget than the first. I know that an interior design book should have lots of gorgeous photos but oh-my-goodness this book is bursting with hundreds – I might even say thousands – of beautifully styled décor photos. dream decor will taylor interior design book review_-19 dream decor will taylor interior design book review_-14
