Many of you have asked for an update on our new Japanese Chin puppy Margot. She is doing great, eating and sleeping well and getting along with her big sister Izzy. An interesting fact about the Japanese Chin is that although it is famous for its importance to Japanese royalty, it originated in China. So Margot is very Chinoiserie Chic!
I also managed to finish my garage makeover and hope to take some pictures of it soon. My daughter Kate moves in a week, so we are knee deep in getting her packed. Life is crazy busy but wonderful. We are even having gorgeous, unseasonably cool weather here in DC. Life is good.

This entryway, with its walls, windows, and doors lacquered in Chinese red and leopard carpet would be the perfect introduction to a Chinoiserie filled apartment. Note too the marbleized woodwork.
And a big thank you to Tina from The Enchanted Home for including my laundry room in her post today.
