Readers' Requests Series - Seashells & Chinoiserie

This post is for the follower who requested inspiration on combining seashells and blue and white Chinese porcelain. This is a lovely combination that works not only in a beach house, but in any setting.

  1. Beth-
    Do you have suggestions for your followers about where to get "new" but really good looking blue and white double happiness and ginger jars?
    Love the shells!

  2. I think anyone who has ever seen that first photo with the black Chinoiserie chest filled with the shells and blue and white ginger jars just could never get it out of their heads. I has been a long favorite of mine along with the Jennifer Nicholson photo. The mix of shells, blue and white and chinoiserie is stunning and a bit unexpected.
    Thanks for sharing these again...a visual feast for the eyes.
