I posted on Rachel Ashwell on saturday (Miss shabby chic couture herself) & then I stumbled across these gorgeous images of her beach house so I just had to post them. If you swoon like me over all that's shabbily chic you will adore Rachel's stunning home. Her bedroom particularly is enough to get my heart racing. Decorated in dusky pink this beautiful feminine space has a truly romantic vibe about it with a pretty little flowery upholstered chair & the gorgeous mirrored dresser. With very little closet space her clothes hang neatly to view on a clothes rail. The house is small but as Rachel herself says 'less is more'
The house is crisp, light & white with hints of soft pastels. Rachel started with a platform of white on the walls & ceiling, with a white sofa & other furniture pieces before layering in soft pastels.
Rachel keeps the house minimal & clutter free keeping only what she needs to hand. She painted the kitchen walls and ceiling in a glossy white paint and covered the floors in white limestone giving the feeling of light & space & opts for open shelves displaying her good china & favorite teapot. Rachel really does know how to work with her small space this beach house is truly beautiful.
