{ saturation }













can’t stop daydreaming about the super-saturated (but still easygoing) moodiness of interior designer abigail ahern‘s london digs (as featured this week on the selby / her lamps also appeared in this post). i’m on the market for a few apartment updates of my own ~ a new chair for the living room, some fresh lamp shades, and a slimmer bed ~ and this space is giving me all sorts of ideas.

if you have any genius suggestions for where to source these necessities really quickly, please let me know in the comments! ye olde glamour den is being shot again in a few weeks and i’d love to implement these updates in anticipation.

    While not my personal style (I prefer more rustic), I must say that it is absolutely amazing and perfectly decorated. I cannot wait to have my own flat!

    Just read your old post – you have some awesome stuff in your apartment! I wish I wasn't so stingy with my apartment – meaning I wish I didn't feel bad for buying show pieces for it. I think a major apartment restyle is in order for me, hopefully in 2012! (I smell a 2012 resolution.)

    It's beautiful but way too busy, I wouldn't be able to rest there…

    Excuse me if this is too obvious, but for a quick punch of super-saturated objects, spray paint is your best friend! Obviously it won't work on upholstery, but you're good to go with anything wood, metal, or plastic. Her table reminded me a little bit of the spray-painted lions that live in my apartment:

    For an upholstered quick fix of bright color, pillows are your best friend. I made mine, but Urban Outfitters usually has a great selection, or if you've got more cash, Jonathan Adler loves color (come to think of it, they've got great furniture, too, and might even have chairs you'd like).

    I love the paint colors. It's very similar to what I painted my den, but I didn't go quite dark enough. Wish I had a done a "moodier" look like what is shone here.

    I don't think I could never make this happen in my own space…I would stop WAY before I got to greatness, and it would just seem like an odd collection of things an dark walls! This is well done!

    I wonder how you can really get your true personality into your house…without overcrowding it? Probably just keep collecting and moving things around!

    Ms Glamourai, I can tell you exactly where you can buy the doggy lamp shades but they are in Glasgow, Scotland. Gallately & Tubbs interiors. The dogs lampshades are as camp as a pink elephant, but I love them too. The shop is opposite where I work so any problems then email me and happy to help: glasgow@timorousbeasties.com

    It's been a while.
