I heart Rachel Ashwell.. (as if you didn't know!)

Back in November, I met the lovely Rachel Ashwell of Shabby Chic when she was on her book tour for Shabby Chic Interiors. The last year has thrown a lot at her and yet she has spun it around to be something even better than before!.. After Rachel Ashwell Shabby Chic stores closed last year, months later, Rachel relaunched the brand Shabby Chic Couture in Santa Monica, New York and now London too. She is truly amazing.

Here are some images from the gorgeous book..

She is so inspiring in her laid back and serene style. There is something about lovely pale linens, squishy couches, sweet smelling candles, and beat up furniture that just says "flop down and enjoy"

Rachel shared her home with SFgirlbybay back in December. Lot's of lovely pictures here.. behind the scenes with Rachel Ashwell

One question SFgirlbybay asked Rachel:

Q. What is your biggest interior design nightmare?
A. People want things, too much, too fast, too perfect.

I just love that!.. It's true. Less is more, slow down and see the lovely in the unmade bed!
