|My first post - de Gournay and Chinese Chippendale|
Today marks the 10 year anniversary of my blog Chinoiserie Chic with over 4,500 posts. A fraction of 1% of blogs are ten years old, so it is an accomplishment of sorts. Did you know that I created the term "Chinoiserie Chic" and it is now used everywhere to describe interior design that incorporates Chinoiserie?
My life has changed a lot in the past ten years - I am now a widow, an interior designer, an empty nester, and about to put the house I have loved for 20 years on the market this next week. But through it all, Chinoiserie Chic has been a lovely escape that has brought nothing but positive energy into my life - creativity, a career I always wanted, new friends, travel, writing, and much more than I can put into words. Thank you to those who have followed me for years and to those who have found me along the way. This next year will bring lots of changes to my life, but this blog will be here, I promise. I hope you will be too.
