The Chinoiserie Dressing Room

Domino

The dressing room is a favorite space for me for to use Chinoiserie wallpaper. It takes a modest amount of wallpaper - often just one wall and it is an ideal spot to go all out pretty and feminine. The marble floor and bench are wonderful features as well.

Malachite

Frontgate

I love malachite and these oversized malachite ginger jars are fabulous combined with a zebra rug, rattan bench, and modern botanical art.

The Chinoiserie Dressing Nook

Sarah Bartholomew

A lovely spot featuring a vanity chair upholstered in Brunschwig & Fils Les Touches banded in green, matchstick blinds, a blue and white Chinese cachepot with an orchid, and a gold mirror layered in front of the window and blinds.

Blue and White

Mark D. Sikes

If you like your Chinoiserie with a more beachy/casual/comfortable vibe, take some tips from Mark Sikes. Stripes are a must. As I posted about as a Chinoiserie trend this year, the collection of blue and white Chinese porcelain is composed of single pieces as opposed to pairs. Vintage rattan furniture gives a rustic feel. Iron candleholders and sconces are another more relaxed choice. I love the Greek key mirror.
