Orange & Chinoiserie

Orange faux bamboo lanterns - Traditional Home
With autumn around the corner, I love thinking about ways to add orange Chinoiserie touches to my home. Here is some inspiration.

Baskets & Chinoiserie

Summer Thornton - House Beautiful

Baskets are a great way to add a causal note, as well as functionality,  to a Chinoiserie entryway with lots of blue and white Chinese porcelain.

Saturday Inspiration - The Chinoiserie Foyer

This lovely foyer is decorated with a pair of Chinoiserie murals, a pair of benches, and an enormous pair of blue and white ginger jars. Chinoiserie wallpaper can be seen beyond in the living room.

The Chinoiserie Entry

Jill Goldberg - New England Home
 If you love color and Chinoiserie, this entry is one for you. The walls are covered in a blue Phillip Jeffries grasscloth. The stair runner is leopard. A Bernhardt leather bench is upholstered in spring leaf green. An Osborne & Little fabric covers the colorful bolster. A sea urchin sculpture is a fanciful note. Chinoiserie elements include a beautiful pagoda mirror with bells and a black and white dragon lamp whose lampshade echoes the green of the bench.
