Pretty Pairing: Rachel Ashwell | The Blue Carrot

Two favorite designers have reminded me of one another for a while. Rachel Ashwell, owner of Shabby Chic Couture and The Prairie, is well known for her relaxed romantic design style using time worn and found pieces mixed with her signature slipcovered furniture. Beautiful blooms in shades of pink, white and lavender often accompany Rachel’s Shabby Chic vignettes. Susanne Hatwood, owner of The Blue Carrot, is also known for her romantic design work, but uses flowers as her medium. With an abundance of perfect blooms gathered into compotes, crockery, found vessels and bouquets tied up with silk ribbons, Susanne’s signature aesthetic is as easy to spot as Rachel’s Shabby Chic brand. Susanne also tends toward blooms in shades of pale pink, cream, blue and peach occasionally studded with deep striking blossoms. I just had to visually pair the work of these two amazing designers for inspiration…and I think you’ll see why…
