A Chinoiserie Christmas - Day 7

New England Home
 A wonderful entryway that combines tartan and Chinoiserie with a tartan blanket on the wicker waking stick stand and Chinoiserie touches that include a red Chinese lantern, blue and white ginger jar, and a blue and white double gourd vase. I am off to a friend's for Bloody Marys at 9 am before the Scottish Parade at 11 am. Lots of tartan today.

A Chinoiserie Christmas - Day 6

Ralph Lauren Home

To help celebrate the 46th Annual Scottish Christmas Walk Weekend in my beloved Alexandria, Virginia, this weekend I will feature tartan and Chinoiserie. This is also a wonderful choice for the holidays.

I am looking forward to lots of Scotch, wearing tartan, gorgeous weather for the parade on Saturday, and lots of good food, friends, and fun.
