Meridian Abbey New Year Goals

Welcome to the Meridian Abbey of 2017!!

About a month ago I realized for the first time all year that the last blog post I put out into the world wasn’t even in 2016.  

That’s terrible. 

Hopefully it tells you that I had a stinkin’ busy year, which is true, but could just as easily read (and most likely says) that I had fallen off the face of the planet.  Bad, bad professional move, Abigail.  

I am still among the living and my goal is to write MUCH more consistently this year.  I guess writing at all would be a good place to start, but I’m aiming high.  With a calendar and everything.  It’s gonna be greatness!

In the spring I am doing photo shoots for two (possibly three) of the kitchens I completed last year and will be sharing those.  The travel bug hit hard in October and there doesn’t seem to be an end in sight, so I’ll be sharing the beautiful things I see and do on my travels as they come along.  You can keep up with ongoing projects, as well as impulsive tidbits of charm and elegance on {my Instagram account} and on the {Meridian Abbey Facebook page}.  I pin like crazy, so you should {follow me on Pinterest}, too.  Please, please follow, like, heart, pin, or whatever your means of sharing the love is!  I sincerely appreciate it :)

In addition to blogging pretty things, I thought I would test out a design question and answer thing once a month for people with design problems/challenges/hang ups/or just general questions. If you happen to be one of those individuals, email me with your issue at abigail@meridianabbey.com.  Send photos, too, if they would help.  This experiment is not intended to provide you with a full design of whatever room is being a pain in your ass.  The help I want to provide will be applicable to you, but potentially to a dozen others as well. I may be able to help you make a final selection from the eight wallpapers you are considering with an explanation of why you really do want to select that one, or suggest a floor plan for your awkwardly shaped living room.  I’m not totally sure how this will work out, but I’m looking forward to the trial run!

Thanks for sticking with me and I look forward to a year of consistent(ly excellent) blogging.   :)

Happy New Year!



Next week: I'm going to share some of the photos I took on an incredible trip to Chattanooga over the Thanksgiving holiday.  I had NO IDEA this city was such a design powerhouse!  Every time you turn around there is something stunning staring back at you: a building or restaurant or hotel (The Dwell Hotel.  Oh my goodness.  It was love at first sight).  Can't wait to share!
