Hello, and thanks for dropping by!
I’m Abi – writer, photographer, blogger, travel and interior-design addict, cat lover. I set up These Four Walls to share inspiration from my home city of Bristol (England) and beyond: the spaces I love, the places I visit, the books I read, the things that catch my eye, and the people I meet along the way.
I first moved to Bristol in 2001 to study French and Spanish at university, and I instantly fell for its laid-back soul, its creative spirit and its unique mix of edginess and elegance. I now share a home with my boyfriend Chris and our resident feline fuzz ball Kanga, and I can’t imagine living anywhere else, although I explore further afield whenever I can. I’ve spent a lot of time in Spain, Portugal, Italy and Scandinavia, all of which have influenced my life and style, and I’m lucky enough to stay at some wonderful places through my day job as Deputy Editor at boutique accommodation website i-escape.com. My own taste is a blend of Nordic minimalism and English bohemia and, as you can probably tell from my posts, I have a bit of an obsession with the colour grey.
These Four Walls allows me to combine my passion for design, travel and Bristol with my love of words and pictures, and you’ll find home tours, profiles of designers and makers, tales from my trips and more. Please take a look around, and do get in touch on firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any feedback or suggestions.
