Carloyne Roehm
I really believe that a sense of scale is what is most important to an interior designer's aesthetic. Here Carloyne Roehm has put an oversized Chinese vase in front of a fireplace. The scale is perfect - the piece is dramatic but in balance with the rest of the space.

Styling the Bar Cart

This is the bar cart in my husband's man cave. I think it's masculine but with some fun and whimsical touches like the vintage pair of giraffes and the silver rhino.

Styling the Chinoiserie Bar - The Ginger Jar

Mark D. Sikes

A very elegant example of how to style the Chinoiserie bar using a blue and white ginger jar and a potted white orchid.  I love how the bottle of Bombay Sapphire Gin picks up the blue - I AWAYS have a bottle on my bar.
