In my dreams there’s an Abigail Ahern chandelier hanging over my dining room table.  Scrap that – we’re talking dreams..they’ll be two! (and a reinforced ceiling) This one has my heart – it’s made from tiny squares of porcelain that would gently glow on a dark winters night. But at £15,050 a light (the extra £50 tickles my sensibilities) it remains firmly on the once-I’ve-won-the-lottery-lust-list…

There’s also this one (at a mere £2,750) which makes me want to break open the kid’s air-drying clay and get creative.  The truth is Abigail’s whole aesthetic makes me want to squeal..the dark, brooding colours with the unexpected pops of colour, the quirky touches and an underlining sense of humour that spontaneously make me smile with pure pleasure.

So it’s rather wonderful that she’s teamed up with Debenhams to design a range especially for them…

More paint colors for 2014

teal*blue*cherry

Here is another Houzz article about popular paint colors for 2014.  This article has quite a few more options showcased than the article I linked to previously.

The hues are fantastic in my opinion and are giving me ideas to repaint my office/craft room, which is currently a camel color that I’ve grown tired of.

I’m thinking of using something similar to the Valspar Winter in Paris as an overall color and then adding an accent color of Valspar Night Scape.  This is a room that you see when you first walk into my house so I’d really like to make it look unique but without being too trendy.
