Orange and Blue Chinoiserie

Better Homes and Gardens


  1. You are placing this image without a single comment, Beth. Do you want us to weigh in on this look? Okay, I'll bite. Decorating with strong complementary colors is extremely tricky when you use them both in equal doses (that is, not using one strictly as an accent color). I'll leave it at that.

  2. Ellen - While it is a bit strong for my taste,
    it is a popular look in modern Chinoiserie
    and has been pinned dozens of times since
    I posted it last night.

  3. Yes! Go bold or go home is my motto. How well I know strong color is a controversial subject; I happen to love it & live it.
