  Library Journal Review

Taylor has espoused a striking use of color in home interiors since 2009 at his popular blog, Bright Bazaar. Here he has gathered more than 200 photographs taken throughout Europe and the United States that showcase light-filled interiors with pops of color contributed by furniture, art, and decorative accessories. He describes how color, fabric, and pattern can enliven a room, and then provides ten color schemes along with details on how to supplement the look. Taylor explains how the residents of the homes he visited have used color in various spaces, including children's rooms and gardens. Resources for furniture, lighting, art, paint, and blogs complete the presentation. VERDICT Those interested in using bold color in the home, whether a little or a lot, will find a wealth of fresh ideas here. (c) Copyright 2014.

  Publishers Weekly Review

Adapted from a blog of the same name, this book embodies Taylor's bold and whimsical approach to color for interior design. His aesthetic is youthful, a mix of Dutch mid-century modern and vintage shabby chic. At the heart of the book Taylor turns mixologist, divining so-called "color cocktails" that blend "Licorice and Vermilion" into "Tangerine Dream," strains "Aureolin Yellow and Azure Blue" into "The Cerulean Splash," and flips "Mint Cream and French Rose" into "Mint Bliss." Taylor blends the personal with the professional, sharing photos of his colorful apartment, telling personal tales of trips to Spain, and recounting childhood memories of going to the theater with his mother. The book could have turned into another blog-turned-book, but Taylor's keen eye for color paired with dazzling photographs raises the bar more than high enough: "With the strawberry season in full swing many of the stalls were awash with a sea of red berries," Taylor writes, opposite a brilliant photograph of a fire hydrant, "framed by the wash of blue on the wall behind it." Taylor's color-democratic vision embodies the idea that inspiration is everywhere and meant for everyone. Agent: Judy Linden, Stonesong. (Apr.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
