Well, design afficionados must have seen the rounds of Abigail Ahern's London house many times (there are a few pictures here), so I was intrigued to see some shots which feature her signature look (currently dark and moody greys) but didn't look like her London home.
Then I discovered it was her sister's home, a willing recipient of an Ahern makeover. I love dark grey walls (depending on what light comes into a property) and I think it looks very classy and cohesive when the skirtings, radiators and picture rails are painted the same colour.
Also, 'wallpapering' a whole section of the bedroom with bus blinds looks very striking. What's your feeling about bus blinds/old signs if it's somewhere you've never been? I don't think I would ever buy a sign of a bus route which I didn't have any affiliation to - I'm a South London girl and I think plastering my walls with East End routes wouldn't be quite appropriate.
