Events: 'Colourful abodes' with Abigail Ahern and Anthropologie

On the 14 May I joined a group of interiors afficionados for a workshop on colour with Abigail Ahern. Abigail is a well known interiors designer that embraces eclectisism and her London emporium has been voted one of the coolest places to shop by Elle Decoration. She has been a trend-setter for some time now and a writer of best selling books like "A girl's guide to decorating" (2012), "Decorating with style" (2013) and more recently "Colour" (2015). These are must have books for your interiors library, so off you go click those links and get yourself a copy like I did.

I arrived at the venue all excited as I had not gone out for a few weeks being on constant mom duties after work and in true SeasonsinColour style I had a total meltdown the night before during dinner when precious only child spilt an entire glass of freshly hand squeezed orange juice on dear mommy's jeans. A scream off the decibels chart was heard around my neighbourhood and dear husband, still shocked, could only say "Yes, I think it would be good if you went out tomorrow".

So off I went to Anthropologie Regent street. I cannot recall going down Regent street for a couple years now (sorry Liberty, but online shopping is just as good and I can be at many windows at once!) and I was of course shocked at how it had changed. Regent street is just like a busier, bigger King's road. No high street chain stores here, every shop has a boutique like quality to it (J Crew, Antropologie, And other stories etc), but it is very busy.
