Readers' Requests Series - Black and Chinoiserie

Chinoiserie and black are an ideal combination of elegance and sophistication. Black may be in the form of black painted walls, Chinoiserie wallpaper, a piece of black and gold lacquered furniture, a black and white toile fabric, a Chinese screen, or perhaps Chinese Chippendale chairs. Even if you adore color, an element of black in a room is a great way to ground the space and add contrast. Check out my Pinterest board on Black and Chinoiserie for more inspiration and ideas.


  1. Lovely post on black chinoiserie. You wouldn't happen to know who does that lovely wall paper with the black swallows would you? Gorgeous.

  2. This is a fantastic idea for a series, and these images are just gorgeous!
