. . . a late hazy august morning, sipping coffee and falling in love with the soft, understated elegance of rachel ashwell's london flat, where every room feels like a dreamy and languid late-summer's afternoon enveloped in a soft and delicate light and the warmth of shades of palest pink and bits of gold . . .

Rachel Ashwell's work is always such an inspiration to me, and I am always drawn to her soft, feminine color palette.

When the name Rachel Ashwellcomes up, I think of beautiful, comfortable, white, pastels and destressed wood.
I love her work!

Love it!

Always so hard to look at photos of her home(s). Makes me wish I had money so bad! Ah well. A girl can dream of a house decorated in all Shabby Chic.
