Homage to Laura Ashley, with a Twist

It's starting to feel like spring and that makes me think about sunshine and flowers and baby chics (over the top, I know, but don't stop reading yet...) AND Laura Ashley curtains blowing in the wind. I think what I have always loved about the Laura Ashley line is its unabashed femininity throughout the decades. She made homey, soft, floral, comfy, sweet designs...

I distincly remember my favorite outfit in 3th grade was a faded jean jumper over a floral blouse with a lace collar and a pair of brown leather ankle boots. I was really hoping I looked like a Laura Ashley model (my early 90's feathered, poofy bangs probably didn't help, but a girl can dream!). In the spirit of the late, great Welsh designer, I have compiled a few room inspiration shots. They all incorporate vintage elements, femenine touches with a punch, and current LA products. Enjoy!
