Designers are focusing on aubergine and deep plum in fashion this fall, and I predict this color will have a jump in popularity in the home as well. Colors like aubergine may not leap to mind, yet are perfect in the Chinoiserie room. Aubergine actually has blue, red, green, and yellow in it, so any of these colors work well with it. In this Mario Buatta room above, the colors pop against the lacquered aubergine walls. The black and gold lacquer Chinoiserie secretary is such an elegant choice. Aubergine would work well with many Chinoiserie looks. Celadon fabrics or porcelains would be lovely with aubergine. I would love to use celadon silk taffeta curtains against aubergine walls. Blue and white Chinese porcelain would be wonderful against the dark walls. For a more modern Hollywood Regency look, pair the aubergine with crisp white trim and Blanc de Chine porcelains. If you are looking for a stunning aubergine paint, my favorite is Brinjal by Farrow & Ball.
