One Kings Lane
I have always loved symmetry and had to keep looking at the number of matching pairs in this room -
including the chairs, pillows, lamps, art, side tables, chests, and roman shades.

I do love the color palette - pink and green, the soft blue/gray walls, the green Chinese chests, the pop of the red Chinese gourd lamps, and the roman shades banded in navy blue.

Symmetry can make a room look more formal and finished, but are there too many pairs? What do you think?

Clarence House Flowering Quince

Chloe Warner - One Kings Lane

Clarence House Flowering Quince has been a long time favorite of mine. How many of you remember it featured in Domino in the home of Paul Costello and Sara Ruffin Costello? As you see, it comes in wallpaper and fabric, and is a wonderful choice for the Chinoiserie bedroom.
