Blogger Wishlist: Ally and Will

Blogger Wishlist: Ally and Will

Welcome back to the Wednesday Blogger Wishlist series, after a crazy time of soccer and South Africa last week, we’re back on track! And today I have two fabulous bloggers sharing their wishlists with us! We have Ally from Atlanta and Will from the UK.
I’m sure you’ve heard of Ally’s blog, From The Right Bank, it’s an incredible source of design, style and inspiring interiors. Ally is a bit of a travel and design fanatic and has such great taste. I know I say this about most blogs but Ally’s is truly fantastic!
From the right bank's wishlist

Over to Ally…
1. The Union Jack motif never gets old for me and the VW Flag rug by Vivienne Westwood for the Rug Company is my favorite version.
2. Shoes are my biggest addiction and at the moment, I’m lusting after Lanvin’s entire Fall 2010 collection. Swoon.
3. I have a thing for chairs and an Arne Jacobsen Egg Chair has been on my wishlist for years.
4. Like everyone and their cousin, I’m mad for Mulberry’s Alexa bag. It’s the perfect color, size, shape… everything!
5. I would love an English style garden filled with flowers and a little shed where I would paint, read and have you all over for afternoon tea!

Ah, I’d definitely love that exact garden and an Egg chair would be heaven, thanks Ally!

Our second blogger today is Will and I’m so happy to be featuring a stylish guy blogger for a change! It’s about time! Will is a journalism graduate with a passion for interiors, design and style and his blog, Bright Bazaar is all about that. Full of colourful interiors and fantastic decor finds, it’s full of inspiration.
Bright Bazaar's wishlist

Over to you Will…
1. A subscription to ReadyMade magazine would be a pure delight!
2. I recently discovered an artist called Colin Ruffell and ever since I’ve been hankering after this painting. It reminds me of holidays to Greece as a child and the comforting feel of the warm sunshine.
3. I’ve still not managed to pick up a copy of Hue by Kelly Wearstler, so this is totally on my radar – it looks FAB.
4. This day roll bag from J Crew totally calls out to me – I like the mix of navy and tan.
5. An Olympus Pen camera – I’m trying to improve my photography skills and I’ve heard this is a fab crossover from point and shoot to SLR.
6. JOY pillow from Jonathan Adler – because I love his sense of fun and colourful style.

Thanks Will, I’m loving that Joy cushion and would love a copy of Hue as well! Oh if only it were Christmas or my birthday! What do you think of all these picks, any favourites?

    I don't know how you can function down there with the World Cup going on — the hubs has been getting up every morning at a ridiculous hour to be able to catch the first game 😀 (the other two happen during work hours, boo!), and I'm pretty sure he's going to try to make it to a neighborhood bar *at 6a* to get the "full" experience he can get, Stateside 😀 BUT kudos to you for not getting completely swept up + away, and still spreading blog-joy our way :)!

  10. Lana

    Ally and CaraBella: Well, actually we're just about to head off to a busy bar now to watch South Africa play Uruguay, armed with a vuvuzela!
