Blue and White

Cathy Kinkaid
Another stunning room by Dallas designer Cathy Kinkaid - a classic blue and white bedroom. Chinoiserie elements include the double gourd Chinese lamp and the blue and white Chinese porcelain plates and vases on the wall. The yellow neck rolls add great pops of color. I especially love the black and gold brackets that hold the Chinese vases.

Pink and Green Chinoiserie

Andrew Gn
 Pink and green can be a preppy and modern take on Chinoiserie or very old school and luxe as in this Paris apartment of Andrew Gn. I love the way blue and white Chinese porcelain pops against the soft pink and green.

Neutral Chinoiserie

William Hodgins Interiors - Architectural Digest
Chinoiserie need not be about color. Here is a wonderful example of the serene side of Chinoiserie with a palette of black, gray, and cream. The large black ginger jar under the Chinoiserie cabinet is wonderful.

Yellow and Chinoiserie

Krista Ewart - House Beautiful
Yellow is making a big reappearance this year, and a kitchen or breakfast room is a natural for such a cheery color. The wallpaper here is Clarence House The Vase, an iconic wallpaper that is very hot right now. A Palm Beach lantern and Chinese Chippendale chairs are perfect choices. The black painted floor makes for a great contrast. The built in banquette adds storage space.
