Never under estimate the impact of using blue and white Chinese porcelain as a vase.

High/Low Chinese Lanterns

Traditional Home

I love these bamboo hurricanes from Frontgate shown above that used to come in great colors like these in melon. I remember they were quite pricey. They currently stock the one below at $149 but I'm not nuts about it.


Yesterday in HomeGoods I bought the one below for $9.99. I think I'll paint it in Hermes orange and use it for outdoor dining. I'd love to find a second one. Let me know if you see any around DC.

Blush Pink

Society Social

Blush pink is so great paired with blue and white Chinese porcelain. The modern sketches pick up the pink and blue as well.

The Chinoiserie Entryway III

Carla Aston

Another entryway with a skirted table and a fabulous lantern - the framed Chinoiserie panel is wonderful.
