Happy Chinoiserie Halloween

Lots of great black and orange inspiration here from Robin Bell Interiors. The room above is a favorite of mine. I hope everyone has a great Halloween and perhaps had fun at a Halloween soiree over the weekend. I won at the costume party contest I attended dressed as Lady Gaga!

Chinoiserie Halloween

InStyle Magazine
A great idea - wallpaper the inside of a medicine cabinet, kitchen cabinets, armoire, or closet in a fabulous Chinoiserie paper. A lot of style with a little paper.
