A Chinoiserie Kitchen

Many of us have posted the photo above of this wonderful French influenced kitchen from House Beautiful with its Chinoiserie touches. I thought it would be fun to look at it in greater detail. Note the red tole pagoda lantern by Vaughan. The curtains are Bailey & Griffin's Canton Toile in Cherry Vanilla backed in Brunschwig & Fils Paola taffeta in Pepper Red. The stools are in Brunschwig & Fils La Mer in Pompeain Red.

The hand painted tile mural is from the Chinoiserie series by Tempest. Note the red knobs on the Wolf range.

  1. Just gorgeous, Beth! The backsplash is fabulous.
    Happy Monday.

  2. I always love the small touches like the papertowel holder and the trash under the cutting board. I saw a great waste cutout in a granite countertop this weekend that had a small granite cover that essentially made it disappear.

  3. That is a beautiful kitchen. I have seen the paper towel niche before and I think it is genius.
