About the Author

Rachel Ashwell is a self-made businesswoman who founded the iconic brand known as Shabby Chic in 1989 when, as a single mother of two young children, she looked to open a small shop where she could sell 'pretty things' without spending much time or distance away from her children.

For those who were saddened by the closing of Shabby Chic stores and look to Rachel Ashwell's blog for inspiration, Shabby Chic Interiors will thoroughly satisfy. Ashwell's friendly tone, along with Amy Neunsinger's delicious photography, take the reader through exactly what is promised: her rooms, treasures, and trinkets. She manages to make a barn beautifully charming, and her collection of vintage prom dresses is nothing short of gorgeous. In short, if you enjoyed The Shabby Chic Home (or any of her other books, as well), then you will love Shabby Chic Interiors.

I just finished Rachel Ashwell's latest book, Shabby Chic Interiors: My Rooms, Treasures, and Trinkets. I thought the book was very inspiring. Amy Neunsinger's photography was fantastic and I think it's great that Rachel is evolving her look with more saturated colors and some leather pieces thrown in for good measure. It feels just as feminine and chic but maybe a little more mature and sophisticated. Without a doubt, I love that she gets rid of all the modern "fancy-smancy" additions by replacing them with the old, well-worn look we love her for. I was very happy with this new book and will happily add it to my RASC collection! It's a definite keeper that you will refer to often for helpful tips and great suggestions on ways in which to beautify your home with simple everyday items that we all have access to. Keep up the good work. I can't wait to see your new store in NY.

Of course, everyone is entitled to their opinion but, I think those who say they are a fan of Rachel's and then completely pan this book because it didn't meet their expectation of what they thought she "should have" put in her book have completely missed the mark. The book is subtitled "My Rooms, Treasures, and Trinkets." Her rooms - not what she would suggest for us - just what she's done. Things she loves, ways she's transformed her homes. Would I do everything she's done? No. Would I do some of them? Absolutely! She does say that her style has evolved and there are definitely more splashes of color in her style. I did enjoy seeing it all and I appreciated that she opened up and showed her vulnerability during what has been a tough time for her. I enjoyed this book much more than the last. It was far more real than celebrity parties.

I have all of Rachel's books, but unfortunately, I believe she missed the mark with this one. Was it hastily put together? I have almost all shabby elements in my home and I am quite the Ashwell devotee. I have purchased many things from her boutiques and her Target line and she has inspired most of the decor in my home. The European tradition with beautiful muted colors is not represented here. This book looks more like a hodge podge. I have given this book to my friends, since I do not refer to this book myself, for guidance or inspiration, as I do with all of her other books, and they all say the same thing. I do not like this book as much as the others.

Like many other reviewers, I have loved Rachel Ashwell's shabby chic style and loved the photos in all her other books, as well as the dialogue. This book is a HUGE disappointment for me. I still appreciate the photos, but....please....is this just supposed to be a book for everyone? Are we supposed to take inspiration from someone who has money and space to burn and feels free to tell us about it? I'm sorry....I can't afford to have several homes--a beach house off the coast of Greece, etc., and I DEFINITELY don't have space to burn. I have always been so inspired by her other books and was able to adapt the ideas to my own home and style. This book is a JOKE if you are looking for pure inspiration. Frankly, I was offended by all the hoopla about her multiple homes, etc. Do other style mavens tell us about their personal lives in this detail? No. They offer suggestions for ALL of us. For me, this amounts to a fan magazine for those who are in love with Rachel Ashwell and not her shabby chic style. An aside: Why does she sell her wares in Target stores and then write her book from the perspective of the super-rich? Ridiculous. Stick to shabby chic advice and photos and forget the glimpse into your own personal kingdom.

I have loved Shabby Chic for years, and was very excited when I saw this new book coming out. Once I started looking at it, however, I have to say I was very disappointed. I understand how a persons taste and style can change and evolve, but from what I now see in Rachel Ashwell's home, her taste has turned to junk. What happened to the beautiful floral fabrics and antique mismatched china? The beautiful crystal prisms hanging off candle holders and lights? Those were the types of things that drew me into Shabby Chic to begin with and what I still love about that look. From what I see now, and how she's decorating, it looks like Shabby Junk, and I see nothing chic about it. Most of her furnishings look a tad bit like garage sale rejects. The style and elegance that used to go hand in hand with the name Rachel Ashwell, has sadly, been replaced with tacky furnishings that I wouldn't give a nickle for. There is nothing in this book that resembles the Shabby Chic look and style from the past. Don't bother with this book if that's what you're looking for.
