I know I posted an interview not too long ago but I have fallen in love with my next designer/author and have been hanging out to share her amazing work with you. The designer I'm talking about is Abigail Ahern. Abigail is such an amazing designer and author and I was lucky enough to get in contact with her to ask her a few questions. So please read on to check out my questions and her amazing answers. She even provided me with some fantastic photos of her work for you all to have a look at.
Where do you find your inspiration?
Everywhere - travel, walking my dogs, flicking through magazines, watching a movie - literally everywhere!
What has been one of your proudest projects so far?
My store by far. Not that it's really a project, but out of everything I've done, the store is and always will be number one. Curating and designing a collection of products that then flies around the world is pretty darn cool!
Your books are just amazing, what was the most memorable part of writing them?
Thank you! I love writing. Luckily my publishers wanted it writte in my yabbery style so I have memories of spending long hours at my desk in the summer with the garden doors wide open, writing from the heart about stuff I am well and truly passionate about. I also got to visit some amazing spaces in NYC, Paris and London so they truly inspired me.
What was the most recent purchase for your home?
A chandelier for my studio. it's a supersized one which I just love.
What would be one of your best hints and tips for a novice designer?
I think to buy only what you love and not what is in or out, hot or not. Follow your heart and you can't go wrong.
What can we expect next from Abigail Ahern?
A paint range launching in Spring, a furniture range for later in the year, and an expanded Design School with dates around the globe. I think if I can do all of that I'll be a happy girl.
What a busy lady but she sounds like so much fun! As promised a few photos of her amazing work for you.
