Profile: Absolutely Beautiful Things

Anna of Absolutely Beautiful Things

When I started my blog at the beginning of 2007, it was purely a personal style file. I had NO idea anyone else would come to "visit" so to speak! I also had no idea that I would find so many fantastic blogs.

The first fantastic blog I stumbled across was Absolutely Beautiful Things. The name alone was enough to hook me, and then I fell for the talented Anna. Anna is the creative genius behind the blog and owner of Black & Spiro.

Which interior designer would you most like to meet?
Kelly Wearstler

I don’t like it when people are rude and ungrateful.
If you could vacation anywhere in the world where would it be?
I can’t just choose 1 place so I have to choose 3– Paris, Hawaii and Venice oh and the Amalfi Coast in Italy. Sorry that’s a hard question.
What is your favorite luxury in life?
Shopping at Chanel, oh and having my nanny/housekeeper – I don’t know what I would do without her.

My David Bromley painting which is called “Poh”

Ah, Anna, she is so great! I love Kelly, too. Not only do I want her design sense, I want to look like her, too. ~Sigh

Welcome to the the UK. There's not many of us UK design bloggers so it's nice to have a bit of company. Love your blog.

ALL THE BEST said...

Thanks Di Overton! I too have noticed the lack of UK design blogs. If there are more of you out there let me know.

Just wanted to add that Anna has such as a generous spirit and I think it comes through in her work.

Lovely profile!

I agree with Courtney and what every one else said about Anna. This is a very interesting idea, ATB, and I look forward to reading more interviews.
