Stylish Shabby Chic

Rachel Ashwell’s is known for her signature “Shabby Chic” style.  She used this in her Malibu home and was able to create not only a sanctuary for herself but also a place to entertain family and friends.  She kept things simple with a white backdrop and a palette of blues that were a perfect combination considering her oceanside location.

Small But Amazing

Rachel was able to think outside the box and make the most of her small space.  Turns out her Paradise Cove home is among one of the smallest in the community.  She was also able to incorporate some of her own signature details. These included vintage wallpaper and gloss paint. Also, she painted all of the floors white which is perfect for life at the beach!

Favorite Spot in the Home

Rachel’s favorite place in the home is a small three-by-six space that she uses as a sleeping nook. A platform was built with storage drawers beneath and a mattress perched on top which made the perfect spot for reading or napping.  We love it!

    Fantastic color combinations with home and trim/shutters. What color and brand of paint was used for the body and the shutters? I’d be most appreciative of this information. Thanks for sharing!

    how wide is this trailer?

    1. Crystal Adkins says

      Hi Katy,

      It looks a lot like my single wide so I’m gonna guess it is 12′ wide. I didn’t find a definitive answer, though. Sorry!

        We bought our 1987 mobile and are wanting to spruce up the exterior. We checked on new vinyl siding but no one seems willing or able to install it over the existing metal siding. I like the board and batten look. Any information on how to add over the metal siding?

      2. Crystal Adkins says

        Hi Debra,

        I’ve seen a lot of mobile homes get vinyl siding over the original metal using furring strips. The metal acts as an exterior sheathing and the holes are all sealed so water can’t get through. If there is bowing or rust I could see if being difficult. The only other thing I can think of is your location. We’re in WV, NC, and SC but in states like Florida, it may be too wet and hot to add vinyl over metal. I’d listen to the pros. Luckily, it doesn’t take much to remove the siding it’s just time-consuming.

        Best of luck!

    Is that some kind of stick on application on the kitchen windows? I take it not a nice view?

    1. Crystal Adkins says

      I think so, Deb. I’ve never been there but I have the impression that the homes are very close to each other in that park unless you live on the perimeter. Thanks for reading MHL!
