Coastal Chinoiserie

Some of us are likely off to the beach these last two weeks of August. DC is a veritable ghost town this time of year. This vignette is a lovely example of what I call Coastal Chinoiserie. The addition of Chinoiserie to a summer home for me adds such elegance and exoticism. For more inspiration, check out my Pinterest board on Coastal Chinoiserie here.

Hi Beth, I could stay in your blog forever, it has such beautiful eye candy! Up until last month I had no idea that there was a word for the Chinese-esque decor style. I love it and I love the word too! I am a new follower, I think I'll stay a while :)
