Rachel Ashwell’s Texas Prairie Party

Designing diva and creator of the Shabby Chic movement, Rachel Ashwell has put down roots in Round Top, Texas. To kick off the opening of her new bed and breakfast, The Prairie by Rachel Ashwell, she threw a party for friends and locals. It was a Texas-style shindig with a touch of English influence from the Brittish born designer.

Re-purposed flea market finds along with slipcovers and romantic fabric make Ashwell’s spaces comfortable and full of character.

Juxtaposing crystal chandeliers with something unexpected is part of Ashwell’s signature style.

Paper and Styrofoam weren’t invited to this party. Guests dined outside on white plates and drank wine from glasses or small mason jars.

It’s not a real party without live music…

The Prairie offers several private cottages and houses, each with its own unique style and personality, separated by fresh air and lovely gardens.

  2. I was so hoping to make it out to the party but wasn’t able to, but then Jaime stopped by my booth in Warrenton and I got an exclusive tour and was so excited. I used one of your photo’s and gave you credit of course (hope that was ok) until I can get all my many pics downloaded. It was such a beautiful and magical place!

  3. I tried calling the Prairie phone number and it was disconnected.
    How do I get in touch?
