Rachel Ashwell The World of Shabby Chic

At the heart of Shabby Chic is Rachel Ashwell's unique take on characterful, time-worn, faded elegance underpinned with total comfort and a strong practical streak. In this inspiring book, published to mark twenty-five years of bringing her special brand of beauty, comfort and function to the global marketplace, Rachel shares with us the story of her life journey, the origins of her creativity, the ups and downs of running a business and a glorious abundance of fabulous Shabby Chic looks that range from the glamorously traditional to the pared-down and modern. The essence of Shabby Chic is a timeless, romantic and charming interior filled with beautifully worn and well-loved objects, a consistent palette of pales and pastels with captivating surprises, flowers in abundance and the promise of enveloping comfort. Celebrating the now-iconic Shabby Chicaesthetic, where beautiful objects, consigned to the flea market, are loved to live again, this book takes us to the heart of the enduring appeal of Ashwell's creations. Going beyond home decoration, Shabby Chic has become a lifestyle and worldwide design movement. With more than 250 photographs, The World of Shabby Chic is a lavish, thorough and comprehensive volume arranged in three sections. "The Story of Shabby Chic" relates Rachel¹s journey from a bohemian London childhood via pioneering the washable slipcover to running a global business. "The Heart of Shabby Chic" explores her design values from furniture, fabrics and flowers to palette and patina. "The Looks of Shabby Chic" features a fabulous variety of interiors demonstrating the diversity and evolving visual vocabulary of the well-loved phenomenon that is Shabby Chic.
