Michael S. Smith - Architectural Digest
Luxe Chinoiserie elements such as a Coromandel screen, cloisonné vases,  a Chinese Chippendale chair,  bamboo furniture, and antique Chinese wallpaper add tremendously to the elegance and sophistication of this lovely home by Michael S. Smith.

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.

Blue and White

Cathy Kinkaid
Another stunning room by Dallas designer Cathy Kinkaid - a classic blue and white bedroom. Chinoiserie elements include the double gourd Chinese lamp and the blue and white Chinese porcelain plates and vases on the wall. The yellow neck rolls add great pops of color. I especially love the black and gold brackets that hold the Chinese vases.

Pink and Green Chinoiserie

Andrew Gn
 Pink and green can be a preppy and modern take on Chinoiserie or very old school and luxe as in this Paris apartment of Andrew Gn. I love the way blue and white Chinese porcelain pops against the soft pink and green.
