Valentine's Week at Chinoiserie Chic


This week in honor of Valentine's Day we will be including posts on how to celebrate it with Chinoiserie aplomb. Tip Number 1-if red roses are part of your celebration, try putting them in a blue and white Chinese porcelain vase. The color combination is absolutely stunning as with this example by Carolyne Roehm.
