H194001 - "Shabby Chic Inspirations & Beautiful Spaces"byRachel Ashwell
I read this book from front to back, very interesting. Also shows me there are people who have very different taste from me and truly another mans TRASH is another mans TREASURE!! Very beautifully done book some pictures are beautiful.I will display this on my coffee table. Please bring us more things Rachael .I love shopping the Q they have stylish items never have to go to the mall , bring us some more affordable things .Thank you!!! I also bought the painted floral chest and mercury glass votives very happy with them.
This is a beautifully photographed coffee-table book. It captures the shabby-chic lifestyle perfectly. This would be the perfect gift for any shabby-chic enthusiast.
Wonderful "Childhood Memories"
Absolutely loved this book. It let me know why I go to flea markets and hold onto old "precious memories"! I was taken back to my wonderful childhood of 60+ years ago and dearly loved every minute I spent in "the past". Thanks Rachel Ashwell for a wonderful book
I loved this book.I look thru it a couple of times a week.As an artist I love to see how my work fits in to these spaces.Everything is beautiful chippy white-beautiful accent colors,everything's old,ton's of great pics-what's not to love!! I give it a 5-star.I hope QVC will carry MORE of her work.I really love this book.And I hope this artist continues to publish her work so that we can create beautiful spaces to live in as well.
Not Rachel Ashwell's best book
This book is ok, not great. Some of the pictures and ideas are nice, others look terrible. For example, there are some photographed chairs that look worse than things I've seen set out on the curb...you have to know when something is Shabby Chic nice, and when something is garbage and should be thrown away. Some of the ideas in this book photograph what looks like curb-potential trash to me. But some of the pages are enjoyable. It seems like Rachel is turning in another direction and possibly deviating from what made her famous for her Shabby Chic to begin with...I hope not. Overall, I love Rachel but this book wasn't worth the money to me.
Rachel's Books Just Keep Getting Better!
I own every one of Rachel Ashwell's books and was so excited to see her latest offered on QVC. This book is awesome! It is beautifully done, cover to cover. Just gorgeous! I can't wait until the next Treasures by Shabby Chic show! Please QVC - bring us more shabby chic soon!
The pics in this book are beautiful and I can spend several hours looking at it. I am only giving it 5 stars based on the fact the book was to have been signed by Rachel, and it is, but it's on a "name tag" type item and glued in book. She signed the tags but not the book. Like I said the pics are beautiful and there is something new in each one every time you look at it.
