It’s a dog’s life

Tomorrow is another early start for me so being good and posting this evening. I  have spent the day researching researching and researching and am feeling somewhat weary and contemplating if I could possibly sneak a glass of wine on a school night? Hmmm. What I have been researching you may well ask – well […]

WALLPAPER IN THE KITCHEN

I’ve have become rather obsessed with Francois Halard’s pad in France, especially his kitchen. He has so successfully personalised every room from the kitchen to the bathroom. So many kitchens that I see are dull as dish water, bland, clinical and not a place to linger. So here’€™s the thing from now...

Wall art

I’ve spoken about transforming walls with text before so stay with me as I bang on about it again. Super sized letters, rolls of bus roll font, and cute little phases that you can bang off on the computer and then mount in frames look incredibly cute and arty on...

Panels

I’ve got a thing about panelling – it shouts gentleman’s club, cigar club and all round unique snug place to hang out and have a quiet few. Of course my club would need a fire crackling in the grate at all times – but enough about me. Its super easy...

Bar humbug

It is the craziest week of the year so far so please bear with me on posting this week. I have been filming for Mary Portas’s new programme to air in the Spring (beyond flattered to take part in the programme and Mary is so so fabulous). Have had photographic...

Closet crush: ultimate walk-in wardrobes

For Christmas I want a dressing room, Father Christmas if you are listening, please please please. Rather than poking around in my wardrobe and slinging everything on to the floor (as happens most mornings) wouldn’t it be fab to have a dedicated dressing room. I blame Jenna Lyons personally – ever since...

Rugs

Rugs absolutely love them – skimming the floor and completely changing the dynamic of a space creating cosy nooks of loveliness. I am changing one of the rooms in my house to a library and am on the search for a fabulous area rug to anchor the space. Not being...

Arranging pictures

I am asked a zillion times how to hang pictures to create an impromtu gallery esq wall. The key is to consider the artwork you are hanging as some pieces deserve to be hung alone, others such as drawings, photos and small scale prints work best in groups, clustered by...

The Perfect Home Office

Today I find myself working at home – strangely enough not in the small little box room I use as an office because it needs good old revamp and I have this very annoying habit (I’m sure) whereby I cannot and will not work in a space that isn’t beautiful....

Sex up your kitchen

If you fancy giving your kitchen a bit or make-over consider replacing old kitchen doors with MDF ones which you can then spray. A top tip is to elongate them  making them slightly longer than you would normally go for. This makes them look and feel far more bespoke than...

ATELIER Abigail Ahern launch of new collection and website

Our new website and collection launches tomorrow –and if I may say so defines the essence of chic. Think modernism mixed with vintage finds with a bit of Barbie esq thrown in. Pop Art mixes with modern lighting, nouveau chic accessories mix with super cool rugs – it’s all so...
