Cheery Chinoiserie

Happy Friday my loves!  Today I have a special treat for you- a guest post from Design Shuffle about chinoiserie interiors.  Without further ado, I'll let Mari take it away!

Hello, everyone! It's Mari here for Design Shuffle, a fabulous social networking site where interior designers share their work and design enthusiasts find inspiration for their projects. As a writer for Design Shuffle, I get to visit lovely interior design and decorating blog like The Peak of Tres Chic to share some of my favorite rooms. Today's guest post is about Chinoiserie ("Chinese-esque") decorating ideas and some unexpected color combinations seen in this lovely artistic style. We hope you'll be inspired by the eight beautiful spaces we've chosen. Do you love the look of Chinoiserie? What are your favorite Chinoiserie colors?

Chinoiserie Unexpected Colors 

A crisp fresh dining room design is enveloped in pink and mint Chinoiserie pattern. What a successful interior design approach this is. I love the skirted dining chairs.

Sunny yellow strewn with vines, birds and gorgeous flowers creates a stunning example of unexpected color in Chinoiserie. The turquoise and gold chest is gorgeous against the wallpaper.

How beautiful this chocolate and mint Chinoiserie wallpaper looks with deep green accessories and chevron patterned floor. I love how the designer carried the paper up onto the soffited ceiling in this space.

This breathtaking design, Bengale in Paprika by Manuel Canovas, is one of my favorite Chinoiserie patterns and color combinations. Just one look at this lovely fabric and my mind is filled with fantastic orange and pink interior designs.

A gray and orange Chinoiserie foil wallcovering brings excitement to this traditional, but eclectic, dining room. Perfect under foot is the taupe key carpet.

From Lilly Pulitzer, this pretty pink dining space is alive with movement of delicate lacey Chinoiserie dragons.

Once again blue and white porcelain is set against minty green floral wallpaper. The coral pieces blend to create an unexpected seaside Chinoiserie look.

Blue is probably the most expected of Chinoiserie colors. However, team it with soft brown and you have a stunning unexpected Chinoiserie color palette. This gorgeous interior design has me dreaming of late night dinner parties.

  9. For those of us who are meaning to buy cheap prada handbags for less, there actually many shopping options. Try visiting the coco chanel online stores and buy off-season items. Look out for announcements for clearance sales, hermes bag outlet are offered in periods when shops needed to update their louis vuitton wallets stocks to make way for the new arrivals. Also, you can try shopping cheap omega watches online. There are websites that auction slightly used Italian designer handbags, allowing cheap christmas gifts shoppers to buy authentic pieces at less than half their original women rolex watches price.
