Whether you love it or hate it shabby-chic style is here to stay, and you can thank (or berate) Rachel Ashwell for that fact. Ashwell, who created the style almost 20 years ago, went on to found the Shabby Chic home-furnishing store, as well as design slipcovered furniture, bedding, and fabric under the Shabby Chic by Rachel Ashwell label. If you can't get enough of Ashwell's style, then you'll be happy to hear that according to Big Time Listings you can now claim her Los Angeles home for your own, for $4.395 million. It's chock full of shabby chicness, though this seems like a situation you could remedy upon moving in and ponying up the many millions to own this 3,000 square-foot-plus property.
The listing reads:

Ashwell bought the house four years ago for $3.17 million. The home features an open-floor plan, a family room, hardwood floors, custom tilework, a gourmet kitchen, three baths, a pool, spa, paddle tennis court, and brick patio. Most appealingly to me, it's situated on two lots, giving the buyer plenty of room to spread out. Ashwell also owns a 3,276-square-foot house in Brentwood and a 1,783-square-foot home in Malibu.
