A double blog entry for me this week as I was lucky enough to attend the premiere of the Absolutely Fabulous movie last night! To be honest I'm still buzzing today about drinking bolly in the same room as Kylie Minogue, Kelly Hoppen, Kate moss, Jennifer Saunders and Joanna Lumley, but I did get over being star-struck enough to lap up all the key interior pieces featured in Eddie's home for 2016.
I'm a huge Ab Fab fan, growing up I dreamed about one day having a beautiful London pad like Eddie as a base to come home to after a drunken party. In the film the layout of the house is still the same but grander, where Eddie has bled ex-husband Mitchell dry for a huge basement excavation. Some things still remain the same - the large Che Guevara pop art print in the kitchen - but we also see the addition of these modern bar stools by Philippe Starck for Kartell and this grand Pallucco Fortuny Moda floor lamp in the open plan kitchen/living area.
One of the first scenes in the film shows Eddie waking up after a big night out (gate-crashing a Giles Deacon fashion show) on a beautiful dark floral bedspread. A first I thought it was a Ellie Cashman design, but on further investigation it seems to be this bedlinen by Ted Baker.
In true Eddie & Patsy style the basement now has a sort of Moroccan hammam, including a giant swimming pool. These Rockett St George lanterns would fit in there a treat.
I have to say I loved the movie. If you are a dedicated fan of the show, you'll know pretty much all the jokes are re-hashed from the original series, but that is what makes it brilliant.
