Chocolate Brown and Chinoiserie


Like aubergine that we looked at recently, brown is not usually associated with Chinoiserie style, but these ideas might change your mind. The room above by Joe Nye from House Beautiful shows the stunning contrast of the dark brown walls with blue and white Chinese porcelain. These brown foo dogs from Z Gallerie could be your inspiration for a Chinoiserie Hollywood Regency room all done in brown and white.

My somewhat incomplete bedroom has this colour walls......you've given me some inspiration here today. I have lots of B & W porcelain, guess I just need to move it around. The foo dogs are a fabulous colour.

Thank you, SR2. I do believe you have solved a design problem for me (use chocolate w/ my blue & white).
