Creating beautiful, sumptuous settings for any occasion!

Top designer Rachel Ashwell, founder of the Shabby Chic line, is known for her trademark style of transforming drab interiors into warm, inviting spaces. Simply by incorporating a few design elements and a splash of color, Rachel is able to make any environment, whether it's a home or a special event, beautiful and fun. In Shabby Chic: Sumptuous Settings and Other Lovely Things, Rachel proves that her style isn't simply about creating an attractive home but also about creating joyful and pleasant settings for those we love. In this beautiful volume, Rachel applies her distinct eye for style to six very different locations and celebrations, and offers helpful tips on how to host whimsical and unforgettable events.

Whether it is casual or formal, big or small, this beautiful book proves that entertaining need not be expensive. From flea markets to local antiques malls, Rachel reveals that the trick to making any event or space something elegant—without breaking the bank—is simply a matter of inspiration, imagination, and the discovery of a fabulous buy.

Inside, you'll find practical ideas for any occasion, baby showers to weddings, birthday parties to bar mitzvahs. When it comes to setting a scene, Rachel is an expert and with her easy how-to advice, you can be too.

About the Author:

Rachel Ashwell is the creator of the Shabby Chic style. In 1989, she founded the Shabby Chic home furnishing stores and then later, the Rachel Ashwell Shabby Chic Couture stores. She is the author of Shabby Chic, Rachel Ashwell's Shabby Chic Treasure Hunting and Decorating Guide, The Shabby Chic Home, and Shabby Chic: The Gift of Giving.

Amy NeuNsinger is a photographer whose work has appeared in numerous magazines and advertising campaigns ranging from beauty to travel.

From Publishers Weekly:

Over the last decade, since opening a home furnishing store in Santa Monica, Calif., Ashwell (Shabby Chic; The Shabby Chic Home; etc.) has built an empire around a decorating style that involves equal parts flea-market salvaging, craft work and mix-and-matching from different ethnic cultures. In this uneven fourth book, she instructs readers on how to create striking settings for entertaining and special events. While there are some useful ideas here for anyone who wants to create a unique party on a budgetâ€"for example, hanging flower-adorned thrift-store hats on the backs of chairs or mixing vintage pieces of glassware with more ordinary tumblers for a funky effectâ€"the usefulness of other do-it-yourself sections, such as a page devoted to instructions on how to make a traditional English maypole, may elude the average reader. Some might also be alienated by the celebrity sheen of other projects, which range from the makeover of a Pasadena, Calif., restaurant for Jennifer Lopez to a birthday party designed for Pamela Anderson's six-year-old son. Although this book is a bit more glitzy and produced than Ashwell's previous works, her old-fashioned yet fashionable style is appealing when she focuses on basic decorating tips. Newcomers to the shabby chic aesthetic might do better to seek out previous volumes in Ashwell's oeuvre, but confirmed fans will probably find something to enjoy in her ideas on how to transform a party space into something unusual and memorable.
