My favorite artist of modern Chinoiserie, Harrison Howard, is offering a very rare opportunity. Today through November 5th, all of his limited edition prints are offered at 25% off. This is a unique chance to own one of these beautiful works at a significant savings. Shown here are some of my favorites. Click here for more information. This is the number one item on my own Christmas wish list, so I will definitely take advantage. But how do I choose?

The very prestigious San Francisco Fall Antiques Show runs today through Sunday. The theme this year is Chinoiserie. The choice of Chinoiserie reflects the endless interest in Chinese art and design. I am most excited that they asked to name the lecture series Chinoiserie Chic in homage to my blog. The entrance to the show is a two story gilded pagoda by noted architect Andrew Skurman. Seventy high end dealers include Carlton Hobbs, Bernard Steinitz, and Therien & Co. The lecture series includes interior designer Bunny Williams, HRH Princess Michael of Kent, and David Beevers, Keeper of the Royal Pavilion, Brighton. I hope all in the Bay area plan to attend this wonderful event. Click here for full information.

A lovely follower of CC emailed me about these wonderful brown toile Chinoiserie sheets at Stein Mart for $30.00. These could of course be used as sheets or used as fabric for a multitude of projects.
