My Green Chinoiserie Home-The Kitchen


My kitchen is the most green room in my home, with green walls, green floors, and even green Corian countertops. The walls are in a favorite Benjamin Moore celadon that is an old formula but can still be made-ask for #457. This is also where I often blog. Favorite touches include lots of Anne Harwell art (Annechovie), a Marilyn Monroe sketch on a Paul Bocuse recipe by a favorite French artist, and Chinoiserie pieces including a Chinese lantern, a fu dog, and blue and white Chinese porcelain. I bought two Chinese Chippendale stools and had the wonderful Brunschwig & Fils fabric Xian vinylized-makes it impervious to soiling. I love the green and raspberry pink-such a happy room.

Just may be my favorite room in the house! Perfect pieces put together for such a wonderful collected look. And I LOVE the frog! But I can't figure out where he is. Very nice job here.
Have a great weekend!

Love it! Those barstools are "the bomb!" I am jealous of all your Anne Harwell art - some day......when times are better, I too will have a collection of hers. What a great place to work on your blog - I see now why it is always so beautiful! Thanks for taking us into your home.

I agree. This maybe my favorite. So interesting what we do with our kitchens. In many ways, it's the most personal of all rooms because we usually spend so much time there. I suspect you look really lovely in these colors. Happy (finally almost) spring.

What a pretty spot you have created. I love the softness. It has a "salon" or tea room feel.
Anne's work looks lovely there too.

What a fun kitchen. My favorite room I think. Thanks for taking us thru the tour of your lovely home. So often we don't get to see the more private side of our blogger friends. It is nice to put a place to the person behind the words and beautiful pictures. Thanks for sharing.
