DwellStudio Peacock

DwellStudio's "Chinoiserie" pattern was wildly popular and deservedly so- a fresh, young, modern, minimalist, and sophisticated approach to Chinoiserie. DwellStudio's newest pattern "Peacock" available in citrine and dove is timeless, a bit baroque, and with a hand painted feel. What a fabulous way to transform any bedroom. Did you know that DwellStudio is now offering custom drapery as well?

The Chinoiserie Ceiling Fan

Ceiling fans are practically a necessity in the South and husbands love them, but let's face it, they can be so ugly. This Chinoiserie one is anything but ugly. Available at Neiman Marcus and Horchow.

Chinoiserie eBay Addition to The Pagoda Bedroom

My latest addition to The Pagoda Bedroom that I am absolutely gaga over-no not Lady Gaga. This set of three brand new hand painted on silk paintings framed in gilt bamboo I won for $49.99 on eBay. I think they are a gorgeous addition-like miniature versions of de Gournay, Gracie, or Fromental without the price tag and totally portable. Aren't they wonderful?

The Chinoiserie Laundry Room

My friend Dagny at Scandinavian Chic has put together the most stunning Chinoiserie laundry room. With its Osborne & Little Palais Chinois wallpaper, I am in love. Please click here to read the entire post and to see more photos. This has motivated me to finish my Chinoiserie laundry room project.

The laundry room that inspired my project and I believe Dagny's as well.

The JCPenney Bench-A New Look

I love this idea to try on our favorite JCPenney Chinese Chippendale stool. Paint the base in coral, orange, or cinnabar and cover the cushion in leopard. Too fabulous!

$10 Chinoiserie Finds

This Journal from Urban Outfitters has a de Gournay feel to it, don't you think? I also love this Lacquer Tray from World Market. Both are great little Chinoiserie indulgences that won't break the bank.

The Chinoiserie Picnic

I am officially in love with these. My favorite manufacturer of Chinoiserie china Mottahedeh has come out with these incredible Chinoiserie tinware picnic sets. At $45.00 for 4 plates, these are absolutely fabulous for the most chic picnic, the boat, or for al fresco dining.
