Chinoiserie Window Treatments
What window treatments go well in a room with Chinoiserie flair? My personal favorites are silk and Chinoiserie toile. Since silks originated in China, silk is a natural choice. Full length silk panels are elegant, dramatic, understated, and easily purchased or created. Silks are also ideal for shades like roman or balloon. A cotton toile with a Chinoiserie design is another perfect idea. In more formal rooms, a pagoda shaped cornice could be used. Here are some favorite examples for further inspiration.
