Abstract Art & Chinoiserie

House Beautiful
One of today's hottest trends in interior design is combining Chinoiserie and abstract art. Here are some great examples. Artist Susan Brown has a wonderful eye for color and her pieces work beautifully with today's modern approach to Chinoiserie. Imagine one of these original paintings paired with blue and white Chinese porcelain, lacquered walls, a black and gold sideboard, or a white lacquered chest. Visit her Etsy shop here.
