Autumn and Chinoiserie


Fall is definitely in the air in DC and it is wonderful. Today we begin a new series on adding autumnal touches to Chinoiserie - even ideas for a Chinoiserie Halloween! One easy tip is to add add an orange lampshade. A lampshade in orange would be beautiful on a Chinese lamp or, as here, on lamps with a blue and white Chinese porcelain collection. Orange pairs beautifully with blue and white Chinese porcelain. Here are some orange lampshade sources starting at under $20.00.
