The Chinoiserie Entryway

Mark D. Sikes
An incredible entryway with framed Chinoiserie panels and a sky blue skirted table with an orchid in a blue and white Chinese porcelain planter. An odd sculptural piece hiding behind the table.

Mary McDonald - Veranda

One of my favorite things about Mary McDonald's style is her sense of scale. In this beautiful dining room,  traditional furniture, rug, chandelier, and art are made much more modern and dynamic by the use of very oversized ginger jars on the skirted table, massive blue and white Chinese porcelain lamps and blue and white Chinese planter on the sideboard,  and a huge potted palm.

Palm Leaves

Cole & Son Palm Leaves

Dramatic and sophisticated vignette featuring Cole & Son Palm Leaves in Gold on Black. A mid century modern Platner chair and Chinoiserie lamp are perfect choices.

Scallops and Chinoiserie

Sarah Bartholomew

A lovely vignette with a pair of blue and white scalloped slipper chairs, antique Chinoiserie cabinet, and a collection of blue and white Chinese porcelain. I love the combination of scallops and Chinoiserie.
