    One thought on “Shabby Chic”

    1. I was a mom with little ones when this book came out, and it was a wonderful surprise A designer who used loose slip covers and flea market furniture that hadn t been necessarily been refinished or otherwise spiffed up I m halfway there A very sensible style for people with young kids, assuming you re not lighting candles and wandering off or something similar Slip covers are a lot easier to clean than furniture, and things getting dinged up a bit is not such a big deal Some of her subsequent bo [...]

    2. much less compelling and inspirational than i d hoped it d be sort of confirms my uncharitable assumption that shabby chic is kind of gross.i thought that since i love tone on tone decoration with a huge emphasis on mixing of materials, patina, and function that i just might like a good chunk of shabby chic, even though i ve always found the peeling paint thing and yards of ruffles to be a repellent mixture of dirtiness and twee ashwell, originator of the design trend and coiner of the term shab [...]

    3. I love Rachel Ashwell s writing technique, down to earth She has a lot flea markets at her disposal and antique stores but her advice and the way she puts it is very understanding and most of all doable I don t believe this type of decorating will ever go out of style as some people have said I like the lived in look and not the pompous look, where you re afraid to touch anything as you might get it dirty Everyone loves my shabby chic at home and comment how comfortable and relaxed they feel wh [...]

    4. It pains me to give this book 2 out of 5 stars, but her other books were so on point that this one left a lot to be desired There weren t a lot of photographs to go along with the captions that was disappointing There were a few tips and designs that blew me away, but the overall book was not what I expected I don t think I would read this book again, and I most likely would not recommend it Sorry, Rachel, I still love ya.

    5. Of all the books by Rachel Ashwell, this is by far the most informative and inspiring of them all It really sparks the imagination, and gives a complete view of the Shabby Chic style I would have loved it if it included illustrations, but that s just my opinion It does include the most of all the other books Also improved is the variety in the styling locations made over.

    6. I found this book useful and inspiring I ve used some of the ideas in my own home, especially the way in which she uses white fabric to cover things Together with the book on white home decor, it has proved useful in helping me decorate a bit of my home.

    7. Fresh ideas on utilitarian decor what constitutes art and artistic value I could not overlook, however, the plethora of misspelled words grammtical errors 3.5 5 stars

    8. It was good Nice pictures, and good ideas, but a bit overwhelming and I m not sure I m creative enough to enact many of the loose ideas.
