Chinoiserie Stairs

Did you notice in this photo from yesterday's post reflected in the mirror is a Chinese Chippendale staircase? Don't overlook your staircase as a spot to add Chinoiserie flair. Here are some wonderful examples to get you started.

Chinoiserie walls, garden stool and gilded stairs.

A Chinoiserie mural-have a local decorative artist paint an original mural for you.

Chinoiserie wallpaper-this is Flowering Quince by Clarence House.

A Chinese red bannister-I love Blazer by Farrow & Ball.

Art-a collection of new or antique Japanese woodblocks would be great.

Scandinavian Chic-I'm toying with the idea of a red bannister in my home.
