The Chinoiserie China Closet

I would love to have a china closet or butler's pantry for my blue and white Chinese porcelain collection. Above and below is John Rosselli's display. I'm hoping to incorporate a more modest version of this in my laundry room renovation.


Bunny Williams (married to John Rosselli).


I adore the blue/green walls with all the monochromatic china.

WOW!!! I confess to some serious, over-the-top china/storage space envy here. I'd love to pick out a pair of vases or urns to have made into lamps, but I fear everything I see in this post is just too precious to do that. So lovely!
Thank you!

Nicely done, I too am facing an upcoming kitchen / laundry room redo. Must keep this filed away for that day!
Thanks,

My china is in boxes in my garage! My house has no wall space for giant cabinets. Wisj I could build some. Love the Carolyn Roehm cupboard.
