About the Author

Back to Potterybarn.
The book resonated with me and I appreciated her honesty and wisdom, as well as the gorgeous rooms that were photographed by Amy Neunsinger. I loved the encouragement to simplify and pair down ones life and belongings to the essentials. It's been a year that I bought Shabby Chic Interiors and I still turn to it for inspiration.
Still, I couldn't give it 5 stars.
While I love 80% of the book that is about R.A., such as her home, barn, studio, I did not like her friends houses. To me they looked patchy and dingy (except maybe Amy's family tree house). Having read her newest book, Shabby Chic Inspirations and Beautiful Places, has helped me to understand where she was already heading in this one. In her new book the ratio is 30% R.A. 70% friends, and that 70% I found dark and dingy. I hope this trend will stop with the new book, and we get to see more of Rachel Ashwell and less of her friends (unless they have similar style like R.A.)
The net is stuffed with "shabby chic" but only R. Ashwell has it.
