Entries in chinoiserie (3)


An update of a traditional home

This home in Knightsbridge, London is a great example of taking traditional architecture and giving it a contemporary, elegant, and sophisticated update. The chinoiserie panels, velvet upholstery, marble fireplaces, statement light fixtures, modern kitchen and other touches make this home gorgeous and glamorous. Hats of to Staffan Tollgård Design Group for nailing this one. (P.S. Send in your pets on furniture entries to kim[at]desiretoinspire[dot]net or tag them in IG with #dtipetsonfurniture)

Colour pill

If you can't run away with me to Portugal (see previous post) then take a colour pill and watch that Mondayitis fade away. Yummie photographs by the über talented Lucas Allen. His portfolio is the best medicine.


Scott Waterman

Scott Waterman is a favourite artist of mine whom I blogged about a little over a year ago. He's also a favourite Flickr contact as I love keeping up to date with his latest works. Well, he emailed the other day with a link to a post about some of Asian-inspired art on the blog Chinoiserie Chic. Since I am not only a huge fan of Scott's, but a huge fan of Chinoiserie, I thought I'd share a glimpse into this facet of his work. (Check out Beth's post for more photos and details).
