Will Taylor of Bright Bazaar Shares His Tips for Creating a Stylish Home in 2019

It's about 80 degrees outside when Will Taylor and I find a place in the shade to chat. He had just finished discussing the inner workings behind his successful blog, Bright Bazaar, in front of an enthusiastic audience at the first Create and Cultivate Vision Summit in Miami, a place for women to network and learn how to build their brands. His advice was friendly but confident, and I looked around as others smiled, nodded, and took notes. Among his many recommendations, Taylor advocated that entrepreneurs consider their time commitment, creative control, and exclusivity if they ever decide to work with another business.

And those wise words are clearly coming from experience. Taylor partnered with Home Depot to create the green room lounge and holiday pop-up at the summit, which included a living area decked out for the season. A Christmas tree twinkled against matching plaid green wallpaper, stockings hung above a glowing fireplace, and a warm throw blanket lay tossed on a soft couch. It was idyllic and showcased the versatility of Home Depot's offerings—everything, from the coffee table vignette to the furniture, could be found at the store. But the traditional winter setting also made for an easy icebreaker, considering how warm it was outside.

As he laughed about the summer-like conditions of this otherwise cozy display, Taylor shared more about his impressive background and design sensibilities with MyDomaine. Read on to get his tips for a stylish home, which include his thoughts on Pantone's Color of the Year and the trends he's excited about for 2019.
