Aubergine & Chinoiserie

Matthew Bees - House Beautiful
 The bedroom above by interior designer Matthew Bees is in a historic Charleston single in Charleston, South Carolina. My home in Alexandria is modeled after a Charleston single where the narrow side of the house faces the street.

I love the aubergine walls and ceiling paired with blue and white and lots of blue and white Chinese porcelain. I would love to use this color sometime in my home. Below are some other favorite aubergine rooms with Chinoiserie.

  1. These are really stunning. I'm not really a fan of purples, but I would certainly make an exception for these. I especially love the room by Mario Buatta. Gorgeous!

  2. I agree, not a fan of purple except really light like lavender or really dark like this.

  3. These are some truly gorgeous rooms!!!! I think you really have to know what you are doing to be able to pull off purple with this kind of success!!!
