Abigail Ahern knows color. Working as a designer in London, Abigail is a major influencer in Europe’s design circles. We love her unapologetic color (or as she would say, colour) interpretations, and are feeling especially fond of her esthetic as we step into fall. Also, her new home decor book Color: Transform Your Home just came out in the US, and it’s absolutely fabulous!
Pantone has come out with the top 20 fall colors, and we think Abigail would agree with our top 3 favorites. We love these colors because they can be mixed together to evoke opulence and luxury that’s full of rich enchantment, or incorporated into completely different color schemes to quickly freshen up your home’s decor.
“Don’t shy away from the moodiness of this dark palette… Why? Because anything you put against these bottom-of-the-lake greens, browns, grays, and blacks looks and feels grander and edgier than it truly is…You need to embrace shadows and let corners blur into darkness to give your space plenty of mystery.”

“I like how shades I have never loved or used, had previously overlooked or dismissed…are entering my life. I like how they are making me think differently. The truth is, the more color risks you take, the more intriguing your space will look.”
