Decorating with Style by Abigail Ahern

Decorating with style book
9 /10

If you’re worried where to start with decorating to make your home reflect your own style, then Abigail will give you the confidence, tricks and inspiration you need. It's not about seeking perfection, it is about experimenting and finding the style that you love.

Hammonds Conclusion

Be prepared to embrace bold styles, thrifty design tricks and the inspiration to get creative.

One of the first starting points that Abigail tells the reader in ‘Decorating with Style’ is to “Forget Perfection”, an instruction which resonates throughout her chapters and guides. What she otherwise encourages you to do is to experiment, get creative and embrace the fun in decorating to make the space personal. A touch of eccentricity can bring a room to life, not just a feature wall or a few scatter cushions; but dramatic colours and a collection of outlandish fabrics and ornaments. Alongside groundbreaking, out of the ordinary guides to interior design, this book is coupled with stunning and inspirational photography which makes you really grasp what she is talking about. Take the style and try it out yourself with her ‘How To’ tips; simple guides to ease you into embracing your creative self.

If anything, one lesson to be taken away from this book is to not be afraid of decorating. Just try different colours, different styles and techniques to create the space to be your own.
