In "The Shabby Chic Home", Rachel Ashwell brings readers into her own living space to show every design-focused and frugal homemaker how they can create beautiful, inviting, cost-effective improvements to their homes.
With easy-to-follow instructions and detailed before-and-after photos, Rachel reveals the secrets of any effective and affordable design update: how to assess what needs to be replaced, make structural changes, and keep costs down while adding Shabby Chic touches.
Rachel's journey to "The Shabby Chic Home" began when she first saw the house destined to be her future home - and found herself dismayed by its gloomy interiors and overgrown garden.
But after a closer look, she saw a world of opportunity waiting beneath the weeds and shadows.
With her fabulous eye for design, Rachel transformed it into her bright, cosy, dream house, one that had all the hallmarks of a Shabby Chic home: a practical amount of space, a relaxed atmosphere, and a comfortable beauty, all achieved without breaking the bank.
Now, the secrets of making your own living space into the home you've always wanted are at your fingertips in "Shabby Chic Home".
