Renowned interiors blogger Abigail Ahern is known for her inky colour palettes and dramatic interior design, mixing laid-back glamour and British wit together in equal measure. Drawn to Timothy Oulton’s unique designs and fearless approach to innovation, Abigail’s latest blog post reveals how to update your home for winter with some stand-out pieces from the Timothy Oulton collection.

Abigail’s eclectic London home has been featured in some of the world’s most prestigious interiors magazines, and her blog regularly features on the best blog lists of The Times, Daily Mail, The Independent, Homes & Antiques, and Domaine Home. Abigail founded her own retail store in London in 2003, where she sells her signature dark paint range.

To take your home into the next season, Abigail encourages you to play with scale. She chose the Timothy Oulton Lazy armchair as the perfect statement piece for her lounge, with the pale grey Whispy Linen offering a dynamic contrast against the dark, moody walls and flooring. The Pacific coffee table in cool marble and warm timber anchors the room, offsetting rich textiles and the red brick walls of Abigail’s characterful Victorian house.

Abigail’s next piece of advice is to choose artwork you can’t live without, and the Savoy New York Map looks striking on her wall. Pieces with history are also important to Abigail, and she loves to collect chairs that evoke different eras and styles. Abigail picked the Angeles dining chair in hand-finished Old Saddle Black leather to add a touch of glamour to her chair collection.

Lastly, Abigail hails texture as the magical ingredient to any space. The Axel side table has that rugged mix of reclaimed timber and industrial metal detailing. Every piece tells a story, perfect for Abigail’s personality-filled home.
