Chinoiserie Umbrellas


I am crazy about these umbrellas for the beach or patio to add Chinoiserie flair to your outdoor summer living. This wonderful Pagoda Umbrella above is from Pier One Imports. It is $169.99 and very chic! The umbrella below is the Venezia from Z Gallerie and on sale for $148.99. I love the black and white stripes and tassels. The last umbrella is the Soho Square at Z Gallerie on sale for $185.99. Don't you like the Greek key design and tassels? It is also available in orange design. Let's bring Chinoiserie outdoors-check out these posts of mine for more ideas on Chinoiserie outdoors: the garden stool, the entrance, the shed, the door, and alfresco dining.

Gorgeous picks - the second one is my favorite for certain! I can already see lovely summer settings in my mind ...one with orange details, one with magenta and orange, the possibilities are endless~

Love the pagoda - and I am thinking how easy it would be to add tassels like on num 2 for a chinoiserie makeover!

Sarah-I thought you would like the stripes. It is so classic and would work with everything.

SF-Wonderful idea. You could buy coordinating tassels anywhere and add them to the corners.

Theresa-I think it looks much more expensive than it is. Love it. We are actually having a cool summer in DC for a change.

The pagoda umbrella is interesting but it wouldn't go with all decor. The black and white umbrellas are perfect, simple and classic! I love them! Looks like they are almost out too! Have to grab them before they are gone.
