Shabby Chic Visit

 One of the many chandeliers in Rachel Ashwell's Shabby Chic Couture Boutique   
in Santa Monica, California. All the photos in
this post were taken at her boutique.

I love the view of this room as I walked in.
Another shabby chic chandelier to the
left of the Madonna.

 Vintage mirror with a reflection of one of the pendant lights.

 Mirrored chest

I like the screen behind the boudoir chair. That's a dream catcher
or two hanging on the screen.

Shabby Chic writing paper with images of chandeliers
on the surface.

 One of the gorgeous shabby chic chandeliers.

 In her line she carries sheets and bath towels. You
can purchase these with your monogram at her
online store.

Oh I remember a few years back going back "HOME" to L.A. to visit family. The first thing or rather, PLACE I wanted to visit was this shop. It is indeed a sight to behold!

Isn't this just a great look and feel for living?

Happy day, Susan! Anita

Her shop is so inspiring and so much more wow-ness when you are there in person.
When I am in Santa Monica the first street I head to is Montana Ave where Shabby Chic is my first stop, then off to Rome with a view, Cathouse and off to lunch and then 3rd steet so I can get some Anthropologie in. I think its the best Anthropologie in California.

Thank you for inspiring Romance and gracing your beauty and comment that joys my heart at my place.
You are so kind to me leaving words that mean more then you know.

See you soon my sweet California friend.
Lots of inspiration your way. A beautiful weekend your way.
