Lavender & Chinoiserie & Inspiration Boards

A color that you may never have thought of combining with Chinoiserie is lavender. It is a favorite of mine. It is wonderful with gold faux bamboo, blue and white Chinese porcelain, black and gold Chinoiserie furniture and red lacquer. Walls painted in a soft lavender act as a neutral, but so much prettier than beige or white. Here are inspiration boards of mine to inspire you as well beautiful rooms, fabrics, and wallpaper combining lavender and Chinoiserie.

This post is EVERYTHING I love. It is so hard to find pale lavender anything! Much less pale lavender Chinoiserie! My two favorite things, wrapped up in a fantastic post. I'm halfway there on two different rooms in my house - thanks so much for some great inspiration (and sources!)
