my interview with RACHEL ASHWELL {part 3}

October 17, 2011

store

Such a thrill to interview Shabby Chic's Rachel Ashwell and have
the brain tickled and illuminated by such a soulful designer.

Get ready, gorgeous readers...
for a truly enlightening chapter
of the interview in which I asked
the creator of Shabby Chic and author
of Rachel Ashwell's Shabby Chic Inspirations for...

Rachel's blog

The impossible.
As in:

how to get a room's decor started.

Would you believe this lovely designer
humored me?!? She did!
Also keep your eyes peeled for a surprise just for you.

MR: I truly "get" your beauty, comfort, and function philosophy.
But when many of us confront an empty room with white walls
WHY IS IT SUDDENLY A CONFOUNDING MYSTERY?!?
What trips us up?
Why do we have the tendency to complicate it?
 
RA: There is no quick answer to how to solve this mystery.

Different to clothes that we wear to express who we are
to the world, our home decor is our honest, private and authentic nest, and we can only feel at home, if it fits us.
This takes time and evolves.

A few helpful guidelines:

1.

Less is more.
Don't let clutter build, but don't exclude life.
Clutter is hard to live with, but its hard
to live with no evidence of
life either.

2.

Knowing the purpose of a room usually guides
a perfect balance, as opposed to dressing a room
for show, or playing house.

Decide the function of the room.
What is needed for the function?
It's not about just filling up space.

3.

Take a check list of things you already have.
Perhaps they need a redo...to be painted,
or stripped or reupholstered.

Back to Rachel's golden rules:

Rachel's blog

4.

It is comforting in a room to have
heirlooms of past and future.

Have some anchor pieces and let
the layers happen over time.

If possible buy classic and quality
(fleamarkets are so helpful for this one).

painting
Rachel's blog

5.
Choose a theme, either of color or style.

I love eclectic but not jumble.

Mixing too many styles with too many
color palettes can be overwhelming.
Having a point of view helps define a room.

Emotional comfort and practical comfort
are of equal importance.

6.

Whenever possible,
an abundance of fresh flowers
hides a lots of voids while the
search for treasures continue.



Just reading through Rachel's guidance
makes this blogger feel more empowered...
ya know? More equipped to take
the right steps toward creating an authentic nest.

  24. I'm so lovin this interview with Rachel, and the questions you ask, really get to the heart of her style. I love the picture of her desk area, which is so unstructured, but so totally perfect and pretty and functional at the same time. And... i'm still madly in love with the paintings. It makes me want to try to paint something like that... totally inspired!

    I love the part in this interview where Rachel states "Don't let clutter build, but don't exclude life.
    Clutter is hard to live with, but its hard
    to live with no evidence of
    life either." That struck a chord! It's words I live by.

  34. I have been a fan of Rachel since way back. I loved her show and already own a couple books (and a few sets of her sheets from her Target line). I love the clean white and pale colors...and the use of old fixtures. I adore using things of the past, and almost every piece in my home has a story or a memory attached to it. That's what I call home!

  37. Rachel, you have inspired me since your very first book. I don't have a lot of money to spend on furnishings for my home(parsonage). Your style has inspired me to love the shabby and time-worn and has caused me to realize having the "perfect" home that looks like a photo shoot is not my style. Comfortable and attractive and time-worn elegance for me. Thanks for everything. I love my home and my style thanks to your inspiration over the years!

  49. What I like best about Shabby Chic is that it can be adapted to any room and to almost any style. And it's just so satisfying to all the senses... sight, smell (flowers, hello!), and, of course, feel. (Not really sound, but oh well!) Plus, I love shopping at thrift stores, resale shops, flea markets, garage sales, etc., so Shabby Chic is perfect for that. :D

  50. Hi sweet M ~
    I'm not on Facebook
    yet {I know, what a
    geek} so will not
    qualify, but this is
    a wonderful giveaway!
    Rachel's words to decorate
    the way you really live
    truly resonated with
    me. I need to rethink
    several spaces. What
    do I love about RACHEL'S
    shabby chic {as opposed
    to knock off, over the top
    sorts}? Comfort. And
    the sense that one is
    coming home and could
    stay there, forever....

  52. Hi Rachel,
    Shabby Chic has been apart of who I am for so long now, I can't even remember when I found you and your signature style. Which is a good thing. I have 3 boys who love the way I decorate our home. They love the china we use, the cloth napkins, crystal chandeliers, flowers and all the lovelies that makes shabby chic and you.

  53. What I love best about Shabby Chic is the way that anyone with any budget can be comforted with Rachel's way of life, because it's really not just a decorating style, it's our way of life.

  64. When I bought my first house years ago, Rachel Ashwell moved in with me. Well.....not exactly, but I bought every one of her books as they were published because I was so head over heels with the Shabby Chic style. I poured over those books and incorporated as much of that lovely style as I could. As my style has morphed slightly over the years, Shabby Chic has continued to be a mainstay in my home decor. It is chic, warm, feminine, timeless, and a way of life. ♥

I too am going through a difficult time in my life and I find it so inspring and encouraging when people keep it real. Especially you, whom I have admired since your very first book. All of my bedding is by you, and I love your products. I hope you continue to sell at Target, I just love the whole line. Thank you for your beauty and your integrity. <3

  76. I love shabby chic because it is very approachable, and has an old fashioned charm and appeal but yet is modern at the same time. I also think it is inspiring yet cozy and comfortable at the same time. I love it, always have!

  77. Really excellent interview my lovely (seriously, you've missed your calling here, I think a book is in order) and while shabby chic isn't really my thang, I can appreciate how pretty and feminine it is when it's done well!

  121. What I like most about shabby chic is the ability to mix formal and casual leaving a person to feel completely cozy yet elegant at the same time. Then the mixing of styles is next on my list of likes also. I have a long list of why this style is the best one.....imo of course.

    Thanks again...crossing my fingers.

  124. What I like most about the shabby chic style is the sense of comfort and history. I also love the muted color palette and of course, vintage chandeliers!

  128. I love shabby chic because of this style uses loved and worn items. I have been thrift store shopping and flea marketing before they were the cool thing to do. My house is filled with treasures that were once cherished and used by someone else.

  132. I would love to sit down with Rachel and ask her how to still have a shabby chic look and have it not be too frilly or girly for the men in the house!

    I am so excited about her knew book! I would also love if I could get her to autograph my book if I were to win! :)

  136. My message to Rachel would be that I am so thankful that she created shabby chic style. What would we have done without her starting this wonderful movement?

    ReplyDelete
  137. What I like best about shabby chic style is the comfort factor. It's not about formality. It's about being comfortable and functional yet beautiful at the same time.

  140. There are many reasons why I like the shabby chic style, but here are just a few: it honors the beauty in old, time-worn items; it's imperfect just like we are; it's comfortable and real. :)

  141. A note to Rachel: The Prairie is jaw-droppingly gorgeous! You outdid yourself with that project. If I am ever able to make it to Round Top, a stay at The Prairie is a must-do!

  152. What I best like about shabby chic is the relaxed state of things. Everything is sort of family friendly and if it is a bit beat up all the better. Love that look.
