Abigail Ahern on my landing.

This is a colour palette inspired by interior designer Abigail Ahern. The image on the left is taken form Elle Decoration p.154 September 2008 edition. Ahern is very clever in her ability to confidently combine a whole gamut of stuff. She also uses dark, dower colour (Farrow and Ball's 'Down Pipe') with flashes of bright hues to wonderful 'wow factor' effect, (look at her book 'A Girl's Guide to Decorating'). In response to her work I am going to paint our landing in a VERY dark blue (Farrow and Ball's 'Railings') That means everything but the ceiling.  The bright hues will be brought in via the curtaining which you can see a sample of next to the two splodges of 'Down Pipe' and 'Railings'.  I will post some images of the finished thing once it's all completed. You can look at Abigail Ahern's shop/work/stuff at
