The Chinoiserie Breakfast Nook

Summer Thornton
A wonderful little breakfast room with a lovely color palette of lilac, peach, blue and white. The roman shades are Quadrille Arbre de Matisse in blue and white. Peach is used on the Chinese Chippendale chairs. The banquette is done in lilac. The tulip table holds a collection of blue and white Chinese porcelain.

The Chinoiserie Bedroom

Mark Sikes - Veranda
A lovely bedroom in the home of Mark Sikes. The Gracie Chinoiserie wallpaper takes center stage. Note the pair of blue and white Chinese garden stools and the Chinese Chippendale chair. I love the idea of a sofa at the end of the bed if space allows. Also a lovely vignette from this same room below with a Chinoiserie chest and a modern lamp and sketch.
