Today we’re excited to launch a new partnership with design maven Abigail Ahern, queen of seriously cool and glamorous interiors. Abigail’s irreverent approach to interior design has gained her a cult following as she blazes the design trail with her signature dark, inky hues and eclecticism.

It’s not just any old white, kids!


Interiors stylist Heidi Maude knows a thing or two about colour. In a continuation of our ‘How To’ series featuring a roster of our talented at{mine} beta members, Heidi shares her secrets of achieving a harmonious colour scheme (which her kids like to call ‘white’), her love affair with Farrow & Ball, tips and tricks for using colour in the home, and some rad wallpapers too.

If you’ve ever poured over a Farrow & Ball colour chart, debating for instance the 53 shades of ‘neutrals’ that contain no less than 16 versions of ‘white’, this one is for you.

Choosing colours & paints for your home can be a daunting task – where do I begin?

I have stacks and stacks of interiors magazines and books, and am an avid at{mine}er and Pinterester. I weirdly get a lot of my ideas and inspiration from movies as well. I’m forever not following the plot but examining the backgrounds, furniture, paint colours, curtains… Yes I’m a saddo!

Colour blind?


Have you ever argued about if an item is black or navy or perhaps even dark green? And of course you’re convinced you’re in the right? It happened to the at{mine} girls the other day when we were having a shopping break doing some valuable research, and couldn’t quite agree on the colour of a sweater..

Now there’s an objective way to put your colour vision to the test: take the Colour Challenge! Drag and drop the colours to arrange them in the right hue order, and submit to get your score (the closer to zero the better).

je ne sais quoi

Continuing on in our ‘behind the scenes’ blog series on the cool brands we meet and work with, we move on from rural Swaziland to the splendour of a particularly sophisticated London address, Belgrave Place, showing just how broad the range of at{mine}’s brands is.

Belgrave Place is the brainchild of banker-turned-entrepreneur Emmanuelle Rio. We met Emmanuelle at her elegant yet eclectic Brook Green townhouse for tea, biscuits and a chat.

True to her Parisian roots, Emmanuelle is impossibly stylish, impeccably yet totally effortlessly styled (what this, I just threw it on to pick up my boy from school..!). And like many Parisians, she has this ‘je ne sais quoi’ that makes you suddenly feel totally inferior in style… In short, a woman you’d love to hate… IF it wasn’t for her also being so disarmingly warm, friendly and passionate that you’re soon chatting away like longtime friends.
