The fireplace is a great spot to show off your love of Chinoiserie. The photos just above and below are from the Peacock Room at the Freer Gallery here in Washington, D.C. The intricate series of latticed shelves and collection of blue and white Chinese porcelain is stunning.
For a non-working fireplace, why not jazz it up with this wonderful Chinoiserie wallpaper called Summer Palace by Osborne & Little and spray paint some logs magenta?
Here are some easy ideas from Kensington Palace. Use some lovely blue and white Chinese porcelain pieces on your mantle or hearth. I personally have a pair of blue and white tulipieres on my mantle and a large pair of blue and white temple jars flanking the hearth.
