Feminine delicates...

This space {the London loft of Rachel Ashwell} is utterly feminine, delicate, and just one lovely glimpse from the latest issue of Lonny.
The rumpled bed, especially, makes me swoon because of this previous post {from February 24, 2010}.

The allure of an unmade bed...

Rachel Ashwell was recently featured in the UK edition of Elle Decor. Ashwell has created a realm of Shabby Chic products, books, and stores; her most recent book, Shabby Chic Interiors, is brimming with feminine inspiration.
Elle Decor featured this bedroom as the epitome of guest bedrooms - polished, comfortable, charismatic, and welcoming. Ashwell advocates for the 'unmade' bed, proposing the worth of a bed is revealed when rumpled and still refined. This particular philosophy is intriguing, mainly because I never make my bed.

I love that philosophy, Leigha!I have actually a blanket for our bed, but I have never the time to do it;-)...

Beautiful and very feminine photos!

That second bedroom is so beautiful, the bed so inviting , I think I might find it very difficult to ever leave the room if it were mine.

...although the picture shows a very neat-looking unmade bed! That's not what mine looks like before it's made!!

My bed is always deshabille, I admit it!
