Another Easy Chinoiserie DIY

Tom Scheerer
 In the room above from House Beautiful, Tom Scheerer frames family photos in red bamboo frames. Below, Tobi Fairley pairs classical art in red frames with Chinese lanterns and lamps and a Greek key bordered rug. I love this look of Chinese red picture frames. My go to cheap frame - Ikea's Ribba comes in high gloss red starting at $1.99. The 11 3/4" by 15 3/4" is $9.99 and is matted for 8" by 10" photos and art - a great size for lots of projects. A gallery wall of prints from The Pink Pagoda framed in these red Ribba frames would be so wonderful! The Pink Pagoda is having a 20% off sale at her prints store right now.

  1. Love this idea Beth. Gallery wall are best when there is a unifying element! The red frames are perfect!

  2. The red frames "just the right touch!" Wouldn't be nearly as fun in black, etc. franki
