Sunday Red Vignette


A follower of Chinoiserie Chic sent these pictures to me in response to my post on A Touch of Red. This wonderful example of red Chinoiserie is in the Hollywood Hills home of Melissa Wallace Deitz and her husband. It features a 1920s red Chinese desk used as a bedside table and a circa 1900 red lacquer Chinese stool. On the desk are a Chinoiserie mirror, Chinese export silver frames, a Chinese document box, and a Franco-Chinese vase. Her signature white and cream color scheme is accented in every room with Chinoiserie touches like celadon pots, blue and white ginger jars, and lacquered furniture. She mixes in lots of French antiques for an eclectic Continental look.

Yummy. Love all of the graceful details and, of course, the ode to red.

Gorgeous! Love the table, the wee stool and the flowers - feels like spring is in the air.

How gorgeous. I love the combination she has chosen, and that Melissa uses the desk as a bedside table.
