Saturday Inspiration



This wonderful Chinoiserie bedroom is by Betsy Burnham, yesterday's featured interior designer. Using a Chinoiserie screen behind a bed is a favorite trick of mine. It creates a focal point for the room, it mimics the look of high end wallpaper like de Gournay or Gracie, and unlike wallpaper, it is fully portable if you are a renter or may move.

Now that's a well-made bed! Love the screen and it does give it another dimension. Lovely.

Fabulous look! I do love a four or six panel screen. The textures on the bed are nice too.

I have only just discovered CC and was moved to devote my post today to your stunning blog. I had so much fun learning how best to incorporate chinoiserie into my schemes. Thank you!
