Laura Ashley Decor


I love the look of English Country Decor and what better inspiration than Laura Ashley designs.

I love the classic chintz fabric.  The above and below pics are vintage 1980's style.

Laura Ashley (7 September 1925 – 17 September 1985) a Welsh fashion designer and businesswoman. She became a household name on the strength of her work as a designer and manufacturer of a range of colourful fabrics for clothes and home furnishings.


Let's have a look at some Laura Ashley red.

I first became introduced and hooked on Laura Ashley back in the 1980's when Diana, Princess of Wales wore her clothes.

First time I traveled to England was in 1987 and of course I shopped the Laura Ashley stores and bought a replica of this blouse wore by Diana.

  4. Hi Diane, We stayed in a bed and breakfast in England which was decorated almost entirely with Laura Ashley. Years later I still remember our room because it was so beautiful. Thanks for sharing at the Open House Party.
