The Chinoiserie Dining Room

Taylor & Taylor
This clicks off so many of the elements I love in a dining room -

*Blue and white palette
*Chinese Chippendale chairs - love the distressing on these
*Grasscloth on the walls
*Dramatic oversized chandelier - love the brass finish
*Abstract modern piece of art

I am quite not as enthused about the styling -  I would not have chosen the lamps or pieces on the sideboard or the veggies on the table. I used a pair of these Arterior's lamps in a client's dining room and I think they would be a great choice.

An astute follower commented that the art looks to be by Hunt Slonem - the above is a painting by Slonem - Untitled/Cockatoos 2012 that appears to be from the same collection that I found on 1stdibs.


  1. Nice room....and I agree with you. YOUR lamps are IRRESISTIBLE!!

  2. The art looks like Hunt Slonem. I especially love his layered work with birds.

  3. Maureen - I am sure you are right - thanks so much!

  4. You're right about the accessories, but that's a minor quibble. This room is perfection.
