      I sold a few things to Rachel Ashwell at the last two shows at Brimfield. She, of course, coined the phrase "shabby chic" and wrote several books about it. The concept originally dwelled on elegant French, fancy, and lightly colored (mostly white)country furniture and accents with flaking paint or flaws that added character to the pieces. The look recognized the beauty of the imperfections and patinas. I believe that this concept has degenerated over the years into the "paint any old crap white and the public will buy it" belief that rules the market today. When shopping for this look, take a closer look at the intrinsic beauty and value of the underlying antique article. You will be far happier with your purchase if you do. Good luck hunting for antiques. Now is the part where I plug my websites and

      Rachel Ashwell is a true artist who uses houses as her canvas. I really admire the beauty she creates and how she makes every place a peaceful sanctuary.
