It’s been another busy month here at Ab Fab!
As a small business, we carefully hand-pick our makers, choosing only the best and highly-experienced makers available to us. Our curtains are beautifully handmade and finished to an extremely high standard. The attention to detail is very important to our team and our clients appreciate the high finish we achieve.
As our homes become more open plan, double height ceilings are becoming very fashionable. With this scenario a large expanse of wall becomes available to us. As designers it’s important that we find a suitable wall covering, so the area isn’t bare and sparse looking. In one clients home we used some wallpaper panels to create interest and accentuate the ceiling height. Rather than applying directly to the wall, we instead used a poster hanging system to create a real wow factor!
Wallpaper panels are becoming a popular choice amongst our clients; they are often a more cost-effective choice, provide a high visual impact, cover a large area and create a mural effect rather than a repeating pattern.
One way to help clients visualise their scheme is to put together a moodboard. This can be done with photos on a computer generated moodboard, but if fabrics and wallpapers have been chosen, a physical moodboard with their choices can be used instead. This gives our clients a really clear and accurate visual aid to how their finished scheme will work. We love this one we put together in a tray, using the client’s wallpaper, fabric, paint and finishing touches. A really fun and helpful representation of the scheme!
We’re looking forward to the summer holidays here at Ab Fab, and then to getting the showroom ready for autumn, with some new schemes and inspiration.
