One of the first interior design books I ever bought was 'Shabby Chic'. I was in my early twenties and I had just moved out of home. I also moved to the other side of the world and I picked up a copy at Harrods in London where I worked. I was totally enamoured by the pretty pastels, slip covered furniture, faded roses, crumpled bedlinen and floral china. I was in love with the romance and prettiness of it all. Rachel Ashwell paved the way for a whole new decorating style. Here is a stay-at-home mum who has beautifully re-created and captured Rachel's romantic style so I thought I would share it with you.
