Today we take a look at my favorite Chinoiserie china patterns. I know that the conventional wisdom is to choose a white plate with a simple band so you won't tire of it. I would be tired of that the day I got it. My wedding china is Wedgwood Chinese Tigers and I still love it. I would no more have simple white china than I would have white walls in my home. To me both show an absence of style and imagination. Buy what you love for your home and you will never go wrong. Above is the classic Royal Crown Derby Old Imari.

I grew up in Europe and Lake Forest, Illinois. After graduating from The Ferry Hall School, Bryn Mawr College, and George Washington University Law School, I practiced law in Washington, D.C. Now I am finally devoting my time to two of my great passions - interior design and Chinoiserie.
