What Chinoiserie Does For a Room

Traditional Home
I think this room is a textbook example of what the addition of a few Chinoiserie pieces does for a room. In this living room, my eye was immediately drawn to the pair of massive Chinese jars flanking the fireplace and the Clarence House Dragon Empress pillows on the slipper chairs and ottoman. Imagine the room without these, way too Phoebe Howard neutral monochromatic for my taste. I haven't mentioned the cutesy arrangement of Chinese plates and seashells on the mantel because it's truly awful.

  1. I found a lot of other awful things, the bowl of shells and the oversized paperweights don't work for me either
