Rachel Ashwell recently purchased a B&B near Round Top, Texas. Just in case you don’t know who Rachel is, she is the designer who created the Shabby Chic style, writing several books about this wonderful look that we in bloggy land love.
Her B&B, called The Prairie, is a delightful place, and I had the pleasure of a guided tour on a recent trip to Round Top. Lisa and Danny run things here at The Prairie while Rachel is away. Lisa gave me a personal tour of the grounds and we had such a wonderful time talking and visiting. She was such a treasure to talk to. (Okay Rachel, don’t read this part.) Lisa adores working there and says she can’t believe she gets paid to work in such a beautiful place.
I’ll start with some photos of “the big house” first. Here are some photos of the outside of the house. It is a wonderful example of a turn-of-the-century Texas house with a metal roof. I looks like it has the original wood siding and stone skirting.
Inside I got some shots of the guests rooms. The first photo at the top of this post is of the guest room at the top of the stairs to the left. Below are some more photos from that room.
This is the adorable door to the guest room.
Out that door to the left is a balcony, where I saw this fun, chippy table.
Across the hall, sits another lovely bedroom.
I thought this bedside table had lots of charm.
And who could resist this lovely vanity?
Here are the links to the rest of the tour.
