Chinoiserie Jamaican Villa


This wonderfully eclectic home featured in Veranda is an Italian villa in Jamaica decorated by interior designer, author, and antiques dealer Charles Faudree. It is filled with a whimsical combination of Italian, French, and Swedish antiques and Chinoiserie.

I remember this one well.
His lil shop is a skip and jump away. Packed full of treasures new and old.

Love the shell usage here in this beach house. Really really a great looking house, beachy but not too much.

Beautiful -- love the mix of styles here. Chinoiserie + coastal is a look I strive for in my own home and it's so inspiring to seen it done right.

It's so fun! I love the first double bedded bedroom! So fun, not too serious, and of course, fashionable!
