Chinoiserie Outdoors

Carolyne Roehm

It was 77 degrees in Alexandria, Virginia yesterday and I enjoyed time in the garden planting pansies, cutting back perennials, and cleaning my blue and white Chinese garden stools and more. It has inspired me to post this favorite photo.

The Chinoiserie Living Room

Michelle Nussbaumer - Veranda

Lots of blue and white Chinese porcelain in this very British inspired living room. The antique English sofa is slipcover in a Ralph Lauren pink linen. Pink works so well with blue and white. I also love that camel.

The Chinoiserie Dressing Room


The dressing room is a favorite space for me for to use Chinoiserie wallpaper. It takes a modest amount of wallpaper - often just one wall and it is an ideal spot to go all out pretty and feminine. The marble floor and bench are wonderful features as well.

I love malachite and these oversized malachite ginger jars are fabulous combined with a zebra rug, rattan bench, and modern botanical art.
