I admit it! I'm a 'shabby chic' freak!
I caught Rachel Ashwell's show for the first time on the Style Network a few years ago and she spoke to me. I discovered a passion for decorating and caught the flea market style bug. If you get the concept and now need the roadmap, this is it!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Charming and Inspirational
This lovely book takes the reader on a delicious trip into flea markets and other sources of Shabby Chic style. Hoping to find more direction on how to achieve Ashwell's style in my own home, I was instead inspired to achieve my own look by using some of her decorating principles. But don't expect these principles to be outlined for you. The chatty and personal style of writing is more like reading her personal shopping journal. Overall I found this book more enjoyable than instructional, but there is quite a bit of useful information in it, especially for first-time flea market shoppers.Was this review helpful?
