Recently purchased the new Shabby Chic Interiors hardcover by Rachel Ashwell and fell in love with her vintage pale pink capodimonte jewelry box. I was on the search for something similar and found one just like it, but in pale blue. Unfortunately the seller forgot to end the listing since she gave this pretty box to her niece for her birthday… The situation was lame; I had my heart set on it already! Oh well, what can one do :(? Does anyone know what is the proper name for the style of capodimonte in the pic below (besides it being a “capodimonte”)? Could probably help in my search and I would appreciate some insight. If anyone knows, please post a comment. Thanks.

Shabby Chic Beautiful

I love Rachel Ashwell’s bedroom decor. She has the most AMAZING french-style closet in her bedroom too (buy her book so you can see for yourself; it’s Marie Antoinette worthy)! Rachel has great instincts for interior design. Her home is so charming down to the smallest of details. I hope someday my home could be as compliment-worthy (a team approach is necessary to make that happen).

Decorating & Home Maintenance

Over the years, I’ve looked through many books regarding decorating. I was most interested in ambiance (French country specifically) and how to deal with small spaces. These are my top reads with the last one as my housekeeping tome–>

Please drop me a line if you can recommend any others. I’m always on the lookout for good books.
