Product description

Forget perfection - Decorating with Style gives you the confidence to take risks with interior design, embrace what you love, and fill your home with infectiously fabulous stuff: comforting, inviting and imbued with personality. Decorating Abigail Ahern style is about creating spaces that make you happy - not just buying the latest 'it' chair. According to the internationally renowned interior designer, the most successful homes always have an element of the unexpected. Good taste is wonderful, but without a touch of eccentricity - some tension between spontaneity and rigour, refinement and rebellion - beautifully co-ordinated rooms can leave you cold. Proving that style has nothing to do with money and everything to do with confidence, Abigail goes back to basics to help you determine your own style, then demonstrates how to take interiors to the next level by mixing and layering different styles and eras; injecting intrigue into a room with some maximalist lighting or a decorative rug; playing around with scale, colour and texture to create an enchanting, idiosyncratic vibe. Packed with original ideas, beautiful photography, speedy updates and easy DIY projects - that transform affordable furniture and accessories into something you'd see in a designer showroom - this hip, hands-on guide offers all the tips, tricks and inspiration you need to create a stylish home. For style-conscious girls on a budget, interior design just got fun ...
