Blanc de Chine
For those who love Chinoiserie and are lovers of white, Blanc de Chine is perfect. Blanc de Chine is simply white Chinese porcelain. This tablescape by Ruthie Sommers demonstrates how a collection of white really pops against the background of this dramatic Chinoiserie screen. This lovely room below by Mary McDonald incorporates white foo dogs and Blanc de Chine porcelain pieces for a very subtle and elegant approach. Your Blanc de Chine collection need not be Chinese or even Asian. Just look for pieces with a Chinoiserie flair-places like Z Gallerie, Paper Source, and West Elm are great well priced sources.
