Forget perfection - Decorating with Style gives you the confidence to take risks with interior design, embrace what you love, and fill your home with infectiously fabulous stuff: comforting, inviting and imbued with personality. Decorating Abigail Ahern style is about creating spaces that make you happy - not just buying the latest 'it' chair. According to the internationally renowned interior designer, the most successful homes always have an element of the unexpected. Good taste is wonderful, but without a touch of eccentricity - some tension between spontaneity and rigour, refinement and rebellion - beautifully co-ordinated rooms can leave you cold. Proving that style has nothing to do with money and everything to do with confidence, Abigail goes back to basics to help you determine your own style, then demonstrates how to take interiors to the next level by mixing and layering different styles and eras; injecting intrigue into a room with some maximalist lighting or a decorative rug; playing around with scale, colour and texture to create an enchanting, idiosyncratic vibe. Packed with original ideas, beautiful photography, speedy updates and easy DIY projects - that transform affordable furniture and accessories into something you'd see in a designer showroom - this hip, hands-on guide offers all the tips, tricks and inspiration you need to create a stylish home. For style-conscious girls on a budget, interior design just got fun ...

Review:
'Abigail Ahern's design aesthetic is as far removed from minimalism as you're likely to find. With unashamed magpie tendencies and a fondness for bold colour, her style is fearless and captivating. Her book is full of clever craft projects and top techniques to help you revitalise your space without breaking the bank, all enhanced by stunning photography featuring house projects she has worked on over the years.' --Image Interiors & Living, March 1st 2013

'We may have some way to go before we can recreate Abigail Ahern's inky-walled, fabulously eclectic interiors, but her new book brings a little wow factor to our own rooms and beats spring cleaning any day. It has nothing to do with money or trends, says the acclaimed interior designer, but is about buying the things you love and having the confidence to experiment. Abigail shares her top tips, from clever lighting to furniture placement, and explains how accessories can add instant chic - a few dahlias in a marmalade pot, for instance - and how we can use paint to banish the bland forever.' --Hello!, April 1st 2013

'The woman rocking the world of interiors.' --Style Magazine, The Sunday Times, March 24th 2013

'If you've painted a wall dark grey, dreamed of an outdoor fireplace or fallen for a quirky poodle lamp base, you'll be a fan of interiors stylist Abigail Ahern. Her new book is full of inventive ideas that don't cost a fortune.' --Sainsbury's Magazine, May 2013

'Tips for decorating with flairs, including book cameos and bookcase wallpaper.' --25 beautiful homes, August 2013
