I think many people assume that because I have a passion for Chinoiserie my philosophy as to decorating with Chinoiserie is more is more. Nothing could be further from the truth. I have many rooms with no Chinoiserie whatsoever, while others have well edited pieces. You don't want your home to look like a Chinese restaurant or a store like Pearl River, as much as I love them! An interior designer who uses Chinoiserie with an expert hand is Clare Fraser. These photos from her home, from New York Social Diary, show wonderful examples of combining Chinoiserie with French furniture, beautiful wallpaper and fabrics, antiques, and a classic feminine approach in her sumptuous home. If you are a fan of interior designers like Joe Nye and Charlotte Moss, I think you are about to become a follower of Clare Fraser.
