Chinoiserie. More! More! More!

While waiting for my gorgeous wallpaper to arrive I find myself trolling the web for images and ideas for even more uses for Chinoiserie. It did not disappoint! I found a plethora of images, both expected and surprising. From furniture to walls to lampshades to fashion, this beautiful design can be found on just about anything.

One of the things I like about it is that you can use as much or as little as you like. Frame a panel of wallpaper and it is a beautiful piece of art. Maybe just a couple of throw pillows? Or go all out and do the entire room, Lis style. 

Some examples for your viewing...

As you can see from this historical gown, Chinoiserie has been around a long time...

 Chairs to die for

 Beautiful table settings

Who wouldn't want a Chinoiserie mouse pad?
