A few months ago, a newer friend who was
visiting our prior home for the first time
stepped inside and exclaimed:
“Oh my God, Rachel Ashwell lives here!”
Music to my ears.
She has long been an influence as I
strive to create a vibe at home that feeds
the soul, mind, and creative process.
o dear lord, is that table pale pink? i must have it in my life.
I have interviewed Rachel over the years,
and she stays ever true to her roots and convictions.
Admirable since she has managed to eschew
trends and 5-minute fashion so gracefully.
While she doesn’t blog too often,
what soulcandy transpires when she does…
Humble, cushy, comfy and perfect for Malibu.
we both have white pianos.
isn’t it fun seeing real life images like this?

Shabby chic has come to encompass all sorts of things,
but it is Rachel’s interpretation I have long admired.
She recognizes how objects become art simply
with the passage of time and from being well-used.
To get a feel for her take on shabby chic couture,
visit the lookbook here.
Oh the peaceful tranquility speaks to me!
Soothing and inviting.
Peace to you right where you are.
