Our Favorite Designers & Green Chinoiserie


Today in our series on green we look at how some of our favorite designers combine green and Chinoiserie in rooms that are elegant, timeless, fresh, and modern. As you will see, it is a winning combination. Above, a wonderful vignette of green Chinese monochromes by Mary McDonald.

GORGEOUS, DELICIOUS every last bite!! I've collected many of the same images, but to see them all together on your beautiful page. Love! The Chinoiserie, the ELEPHANTS (my ID business logo), the greek key, and the pink ...BTW, you absolutely win hands down for The Best Blog in the World award, and I'm so happy to give it to you. Think I'll go make myself another cup of tea, then come back to drink it up with this deliciousness.

My favorites (couldn't pick just one) are the last pic and the breakfast room with the black chinoiserie wallpaper and green alcoves. I might just have to save these. Are they both Mary McDonald's?

The Shiny Pebble said...

Nope, the last one is Miles Redd, from your photo credit. :)

Love the bed with stripes inset into that damask wallpapered room...and one of my favorite Domino pictures (dining table and bust with gray chinoiserie wallpaper). Thank you! Trish

Great rooms but some of the best designers working today. Well done, Beth!

You sure know how to make one green with envy for a bit of green, be it a wall, a chair, a pillow, a tray, a mirror.... the list goes on.
I love to marry greens, the light with chartreuse, and dark emeralds.
I of course adore green!

I have never seen a Chinese Chippendale wingback chair before: an interesting variation.
