Rachel Ashwell's London home

In the middle of all the grubby renovation mess and delayed plumbing jobs (yesterday everything was going pretty smoothly, today there's a pile of little hiccups on the way), it's good to fix one's eyes on something as feminine and floaty as the London home of the queen of shabby chic, Rachel Ashwell. Oh to hit the Portobello Road market, it's been so long!

Kaiken remonttisekamelskan ja putkihommien viivästymisten keskellä (eilen kun kaikki vielä vaikutti niin kirkkaalta, nyt taas mutkia matkassa) on parempi suunnata silmät muualle kuin omiin nurkkiin. Rachel Ashwellin uusi Lontoon koti on kuin koru, päästäpä taas Portobellon markkinoille!

  11. Hi guys,

    I wrote individual messages for all of you yesterday, but they did a disappearance trick when I tried to post them! So here's a short and sweet joint reply to all of you. I love reading your comments, so thanks!

    We all seem to agree that she's a real inspiration, seems to have kept true to her style for so many years now before all this vintage thing really became truly trendy. Yet she seems to update her style so effortlessly at the same time.

    Renee, the article was from Lonny Magazine at - it's an online magazine, and I'm not sure whether the same article has been published in some other paper magazine as well. You can subscribe to Lonny online for free.

    Hope you've all been having a great weekend!
