Chinoiserie Wallpaper


We love wallpaper here at Chinoiserie Chic. Melissa Warner of Massucco Warner Miller converted the second bedroom in her rental apartment into an office. The mirrored sliding doors made the room feel too much like a bedroom. So she turned the doors around and wallpapered them in this dramatic paper-Osborne & Little's Hothouse in Arizona. When she moves out of this apartment, she simply turns the doors around and strips off the wallpaper. This is a wonderful idea for a rental for a Chinoiserie focal point at very little time or expense. You can see the entire apartment in the May issue of House Beautiful.

great tip! Love the graphic nature of the wallpaper, Acrylic chair is pefect against the busy design.

I've lived in many apartments with horrible sliding mirrored doors and this is a brilliant solution. Great wallpaper, too.
