The Blue and White Chinoiserie Dining Room

Aerin Lauder

This dining room in Aerin Lauder's Hamptons home remains such a favorite of mine. I love a skirted dining table and have one in my breakfast room and another in my lanai - in blue and white of course. 

Here are some ideas on recreating this space. Click on the captions to link.

Note the Haint blue ceiling. So pretty.

Bamboo folding chairs are a great look and so affordable. This set of four is $200 with free shipping and they get excellent reviews. These would be perfect for a breakfast room, screened porch, or pool house.

A coral chandelier is such a perfect choice.

The table skirt is of course custom and gorgeous. There are many shops on Etsy that do custom table skirts which may be worth exploring. Ballard Designs also makes custom tablecloths available in 350 fabrics. Click here.

  1. I had never heard of Haint blue until relatively recently, but then I am a Californian, not a southerner. The soffits on my house have always been painted a light blue, and aside from being pretty, I thought that was done to keep birds and other creatures from nesting there. Supposedly it fools them into thinking it is the sky. I don't know if they are really that naive, but I can tell you that we have never had any nesters in the soffits!

    Love those aquamarine colored glasses from Two's Company.
