Lyrically Lovely Original Artwork from Jorunn Mulen

It’s easy to see why Rachel is a fan of the work of Norway-based artist, Jorunn Mulen. The muted color palette and mood of Mulen’s portraits perfectly suit interiors with a timeworn and tranquil atmosphere.

Mulen says her inspiration for these particular portraits came from her experiences in Apricale, Italy, where she completed an artist residency.

The artist says of her work, “For all my collections I’d like my paintings to tell stories like visual ballads or poems. Some may recognize parts of their own stories in my work. This allows the viewer to decide what the second part of the story is or should be.”

Jorunn Mulen encourages viewers of her work to gaze a bit closer at the canvas or paper where they may discover the traces of her search. Don’t you love that!?!

Mulen adds, “Sometimes I don´t know what I´m looking for until I find it.”

Timeworn & Tranquil Bedroom Decor Finds

Romantic, dreamy, feminine, and pretty yet not precious all describe the bedrooms we tend to associate with Rachel Ashwell and Shabby Chic. If you have a blank slate to work…where to start? Might I suggest a sweetly graceful detail often overlooked? A pretty lace bedskirt paired with white linens and vintage-style floral pillows marks a lovely beginning.

My Favorite Shabby Chic Couture Pattern EVER…Rosabelle!

My mother’s favorite floral pattern is little rosebuds, and I think inherited that preference from her. There is something so very dear about delicately faded pink bitty roses against a soft white ground.

A pattern like Rosabelle takes me back decades to memories of simpler times, of grandmothers, of summer ‘shorty pajamas,’ and linens with sweet blooms of quiet pink.

    I have one of her couches in my front room, I can’t tell you how amazing it is, I have taken many restorative naps there…I love I can toss it in the wash (white denim fabric) and throw the slipcover back on and its always fresh! One time I purchased one of her fabrics with the intention of making a few pillows, i had it for years and then found this cool dressmaker at Country Living festival while in Atlanta, and viola sent her the fabric and I have a very cool dress! I may need those blessing beads….xo

      Love to hear that! I think we get what we pay for when it comes to well made sofas – they are always a great investment. I did the same thing with one of her fabrics – I need to share it on the blog – creative dynamo Sherry Hicks made an incredible coverlet/tablecloth with a pink floral linen I sent her. It’s a treasure! I need those beads too, Elaine!

    Beautiful post! Love pink! And…..I’m inspired to make an apron like the one you showed. 😉 A good creative indoor project for when the days get over 95 degrees!

      I’d love to see that apron – and I also get inspired to MAKE when I visit Rachel’s site and view shabby chic rooms! I think that says a lot about how artful, humble design leaves so much space for our own creations. xox
