Rachel Ashwell is the founder of the home decor brand and storefront Shabby Chic Couture. Her luxury shops sell custom slip-covered furniture and vintage accessories, as well as bedding and other home furnishings. She purchased a beautiful tiny beach bungalow in 2012, and it was featured on Bungalux.
The cottage decor is, of course, shabby chic. Rachel's cozy-yet-refined style is evident in every detail. The two-bedroom, one-bathroom home is located in Venice Beach, a hip neighborhood in Los Angeles within walking distance of the ocean. You'll be dreaming of your own shabby chic shack after you check out the full tour below.
The living room features crisp white slip-covered sofas, soft draperies and a rustic red coffee table. Light blue walls help the room feel airy and spacious.
Vintage and well-worn accessories throughout the house make the home feel like a perfectly curated flea market. The living room opens up to the charming kitchen.
In the kitchen, you'll find white cabinets, stainless steel countertops and access to the backyard garden. The eat-in dining area is the perfect spot to enjoy a cup of coffee before heading to the beach.
Bold purple walls in the bedroom are toned down with neutral white furnishings and fluffy white bedding.
The second bedroom features more vintage feminine decor, including a unique and oversized art piece above the bed. A teal sleigh bed adds a bright punch of color.
A pair of chipped wood mirrors bring the signature shabby chic style into the bathroom. A floral shower curtain softens the space.
