In this inspiring and useful design bible of the ever-popular
Shabby Chic style, creator Rachel Ashwell shares her twenty-five
years of work, showing readers how to apply her look to their own
homes. A large, comfortable slipcovered sofa. Painted antique
furniture. A palette and patina of soft colours and faded antiques.
The essence of Shabby Chic is a romantic and charming interior
filled with well-worn and well-loved objects, a look that is about
comfort yet always remains chic. Celebrating the now-iconic Shabby
Chic aesthetic, this design bible includes all the best of the
look-from furniture, linens, paint colours and wallpaper, to
lighting, accessories, and table-tops. Organized thematically, this
volume is full of inspiration for every room in the house, as well
as the garden. Sections include: Foundations (assessing the space,
determining colour palette, light); Furnishings and Fabrics
(creation of mood boards, linens, mixing and matching patterns,
furniture styles, and space planning); Accessories (lighting,
mirrors, arrangements); Entertaining and Gardens (table-top,
flowers, outdoor spaces); and Pulling It All Together (showing a
range of favourite homes, illustrating modern shabby, romantic
shabby, or cottage shabby). Appendixes include information on
sourcing, how to identify hidden gems at flea markets, and how to
clean and restore them. The most lavish, thorough, and
comprehensive book on the Shabby Chic look, this beautiful volume
celebrates the enduring timelessness of Ashwell's creations while
providing practical instruction on how to decorate your home in the
Shabby Chic style. Rachel Ashwell is the creator of the Shabby Chic
brand and line of stores. She lives in a shabby chic cottage in Los
