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.

The Skirted Table

Mark D. Sikes
Skirted tables, not long ago considered a bit dated, are everywhere nowadays. The look now is more oversized, tailored, and with great trim. I think a skirted table is one of the best spots for a collection of blue and white Chinese porcelain, or, as here, an eclectic mix that includes Chinoiserie. Here, in addition, the table is flanked by a blue and white Chinese garden stool and a pair of framed Chinoiserie panels. Do you have skirted tables in your home?

The Chinoiserie Foyer

Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles
I love a beautiful skirted table and what is prettier to style it than a collection of blue and white Chinese porcelain? They are also perfect hiding places for small dogs - two of mine love playing hide and seek under them. This is a very lovely example in this spacious foyer.
