I love the work of interior designer Abigail Ahern and was lucky enough to visit her pad for a Design Masterclass a few months ago. Abigail’s home is jaw droppingly stunning, filled with beautiful and interesting furniture and accessories. Her down to earth approach is totally refreshing, valuing junk shop finds as much as covetable designer pieces.
She’s just launched her own paint range, some of which were already on the walls of her home when I visited. Each of the inky, sludgy hues were sumptuous, cosy, cool and edgy. The paint range has now been launched and is worth checking out, not least because they all have great names – such as New York inspired ‘Bowery Blue’, ‘Madison Grey’ and ‘Mercer Green’.
Ahern’s style is to paint out the walls, ceiling, doors and frames in one of her signature dark shades, then punctuate it with bright punchy colours. The look is dramatic, (but not for the feint hearted!) and as a source of inspiration, it’s first-class.
If you’d like to be brave with paint colour, feel free to call me for a chat.
