This week for our #fabfivequestionsfriday we caught up with Ally Power, Founder of interior design firm Ally Interiors. As an interior designer, Ally, of course has a stunning home (pictures below) and also owns one of our restored vintage chairs and a selection of our Studio Collection cushions!
WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO START YOUR BUSINESS?
After having my daughter Myla, I decided to pursue my big ‘what if’ in life and set up as an interior designer. So I went back to college, did just that and Ally Interiors was born.
WHAT WAS YOUR LAST ONLINE PURCHASE AND WHERE WAS IT FROM?
Sorrento Marinella black and white tiles from Fired Earth. Sadly, they are not for my own home - but I am so excited to see them in my clients’ new bathroom. I love the mix of modern and traditional, and who doesn’t love a black and white combo?
WHAT IS A SKILL YOU REALLY WANT TO LEARN?
I’ve just signed up to a terrarium making class. I’m a massive indoor plant fan, but lets just say, I don’t have the best reputation for keeping them alive. So I want to learn how to make beautiful, low maintenance terrariums that will withstand the test of time – whether it’s for me or a client.
CAN YOU DESCRIBE YOUR OWN INTERIOR STYLE IN JUST ONE SENTENCE?
I keep one foot grounded in the past and one stepping forward to the future, drawing from both modern and vintage styles
WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE WAY TO EXPRESS CREATIVITY?
Creating unique and inspiring spaces. I love finding the detail that makes a room speak. And I believe in surrounding yourself with expressions of who you are to create a place you’re proud to call home.
