Chinoiserie Library

Several of my blogger friends have done wonderful recent posts on libraries, books, and reading nooks. Visit Sanity Fair, Style Carrot, and Ticklish from a Distance for their posts. These are three of my daily read blogs-check them out if you haven't already.  I found this photo in my archives. I love the freestanding open Chinoiserie black lacquer bookcase. The black really pops against the yellow walls. I really like the staging of the bookcase as well with the tole palm topiaries, John Derian decoupage plates, and Chinoiserie objets d'art. What a beautiful room and a beautiful way to turn some of your beloved books into the focal point of a room. I would love this bookcase for all my interior design, gardening, and art books.


  1. This is something special. So interesting.

  2. That has to be the coolest bookcase I've ever seen - especially the double sides and the stair step shape. What a find. Thanks for the mention! I'm honored to be on the 'must read' list :)

  3. SF-I wish I knew where this photo was from-I saved it in my files a while ago before I started my blogs. It is a wonderful bookcase and a stunning room.
