Prairie Luxury

I've been a fan of Rachel Ashwell's for a while now; for those that aren't familiar Rachel is the creator of the Shabby Chic lifestyle brands and has created an empire based around her brand of unassuming luxury. I love her style. While her taste can sometimes be a bit too girlie for me, there is something irresistible about her pieces (which range from her Target line to her high-end linens and furniture line). 

When you see a room she has styled you immediately feel as though you could walk in and curl up with a good book and some hot chocolate (or wine depending on the book I guess). So imagine how excited I was when I recently learned that Rachel Ashwell has opened her very own bed & breakfast in a tiny little town in Texas! 

The Prairie is a collection of cottages bought and renovated by Ashwell in an antiquing town called Round Top, which is about an hour and a half from Austin. Each dwelling has it's own personality and charm, and it's set in a bucolic 46 acres of Texas countryside; it is the perfect place to go and completely disconnect. 

There is also a lounge and common area to catch a quick bite or cup of tea. If only she would add a spa, they'd have to kick me out to get me to leave. I can't wait to get down there and see it myself!

You can choose to hunker down in one of the cottages, or pick a room in the sweetly named Liliput Lodge.
