The Chinoiserie Bathroom

Gen Sohr - Frederic Magazine

There is really no room in the house that a blue and white Chinese garden stool does not work. Although in many places a garden stool is used primarily to be decorative, in the bathroom or powder room it can be highly functional.

Use it for toiletries, hand towels, bath towels, or a candle. I have mine in my master bath next to my garden tub with bath towels like here.

The wallpaper in this pretty bathroom in the home of Gen Sohr of Pencil & Paper Co is Schumacher Citrus Garden.

Speaking of lemons, I found these fabulous lemon candles perfect for summer.

"Create a refreshing ambiance with the lemon shaped scented candle. Made with natural soy wax and a bright yellow color, this candle not only looks great but also fills your home with a delightful lemon scent. Item Dimensions: 3 x 2.4 x 2 inches" And they are on a great sale too.

  1. I have blue and white Chinese garden stools in every room in my house. Some I use as end tables, some I leave empty, all of them I adore!
