The best Southern interior designers know how to use Chinoiserie in a style that is classic yet modern, but never ever trendy. I have featured before Phoebe Howard who is a perfect example of this. Today we look at New Orleans interior designer Melissa Rufty of MMR Interiors. Her Southern style is elegant and classic imbued with modern and chic, wonderful use of color, and a lovely but subtle dose of Chinoiserie. As we say goodbye to Southern Accents who carried the banner of showing us such talented Southern designers, we in the blogging community can perhaps carry this on in our own way.
