Before and After: Rachel Ashwell’s Shabby-Chic Malibu Trailer

Interior design icon Rachel Ashwell, famous for her Shabby Chic brand, has created her own slice of paradise in Malibu. Her new weekend home in Paradise Cove, an exclusive clifftop mobile home community overlooking the Pacific Ocean in Malibu, has been transformed into a haven for beachy relaxation.  

Paradise Cove proved to be the perfect fit for the Ashwell’s unique brand of light, casual elegance. Although she used her signature “wow of white” as the canvas for the project, Ashwell also incorporated a palette of blues inspired by the trailer’s oceanside location. “Design choices of simplicity and calm are a direct reflection of the environment,” she explains.

“My Paradise Cove home is perfect for me,” says Ashwell. “Now that I have an empty nest, my life is a balance of creating a peaceful sanctuary for myself but also enough snoozing nooks and entertainment for friends and family.”
