The Chinoiserie Entryway

Melissa Rufty
This stunning entryway was in the New Orleans show house Southern Style Now - sponsored by Traditional Home. The wonderful Chinoiserie fretwork console takes center stage. A very eclectic mix here.

Chinoiserie Outdoors

Shelley Johnstone Paschke - House Beautiful
I was surprised and delighted to learn that this gorgeous pool house is in Lake Forest, Illinois where I grew up. I love the palette of blue and white with hot pink and the wonderful use of blue and white Chinese porcelain. Shows you don't need to be in Florida!

Aubergine & Chinoiserie

Matthew Bees - House Beautiful
 The bedroom above by interior designer Matthew Bees is in a historic Charleston single in Charleston, South Carolina. My home in Alexandria is modeled after a Charleston single where the narrow side of the house faces the street.

I love the aubergine walls and ceiling paired with blue and white and lots of blue and white Chinese porcelain. I would love to use this color sometime in my home. Below are some other favorite aubergine rooms with Chinoiserie.

Indoor Chinoiserie Garden

I would love to know the source, all you smart followers, but I love the indoor garden with cherry blossom branches in a blue and white Chinese porcelain vase and a palm in a blue and white Chinese porcelain planter.
