Abigail Ahearn is one of those boundless talents that we must interview some day!
She's like an English Kelly Wearstler, with her fearless use of scale, off-beat color-sense and passion for the ecclectic.
There are not enough words to describe why she is one of our favorite designers and bloggers. Her blogs are smart, funny, and full of insight that she generously shares with her readers.
Here, she shows us a house in Camden, a bourough of London, that is... everything. Beautiful in places, bizarre in others, it embraces flaws and blends the old with the new to present a completely unique place.
The take-aways for us are the oversized portrait of Oscar Wilde (says so much, on so many levels), the worn floors, the decision to use delicate colors left behind from the layers of wallpaper being removed, and the Eastern window screens in the study.
Oh- and we love the red ceiling!
This is the house of an interesting person, living a life well-lived. It is not a showcase- it is a real home. The home of an artist.
