Embracing the Dark Side with Abigail Ahern

Today, I have something special to share with you all.  This lady is a decor bada$$.  From saturated wall colors, to her signature mixing of textures - including, crushed velvet, leather, and foliage - to her haunting sculptures, Abigail Ahern knows how to create show-stopping rooms.

She has her own shop and blog, not to mention incredible confidence.  I don't know many business women who describe their creations as achingly cool and cutting edge, even when it is true.  Her blog includes a "biz column," which features posts on small business ownership.  The articles cover tips, as well as, glimpses behind the scenes of a successful business.

Below are some images from her home...

Seriously, who paints their entire home office and living room black?  Or every surface of the bedroom, including the ceiling, in cocoa?

Her style is bold and dramatic.  The perfect inspiration to jolt us out of a style rut.  It may not be for everyone, but now that I want to paint every room in my home a different jewel tone, I think we are done here.
