Chinoiserie in the Pink
If money were no object, my Valentine's Day gift choice would be this Elliott Puckette pink gesso and ink painting. The photo above is of the artist and her daughter in their NYC home. But regardless of whether it is a work of art, wall color, or fabric, pink is not just for little girl's bedrooms anymore. Pink is a modern and elegant look for any room, especially those with Chinoiserie elements. Pink is a knockout with virtually any Chinoiserie including blue and white Chinese porcelain, gold, black lacquer, celadon, or Blanc de Chine. In honor of Valentine's Day, here are some of my favorite pink rooms.
