This week we are looking at the feminine side of Chinoiserie. In fashion, I think everyone will agree that there is nothing more feminine than the little black dress, yet this is not the perception in interior design. We tend to think of rooms with black walls as modern, urban, moody, and somber.
Yesterday, The Pink Pagoda posted on this room below by Leslie Pritchard. Check out the black walls with lots of pink and loads of Chinoiserie. Not the least bit masculine, right? It motivated me to create this board above for The Pink Pagoda's Polyvore contest - "Art-Filled & Feminine." I hope you have entered to win a $500 gift card from Horchow - you can enter as many boards as you wish. Jennifer featured my board today on The Pink Pagoda as well.
I have also included more examples of feminine rooms with black walls. This has me rethinking black walls - just add pops of color and Chinoiserie!
