Sunday Inspiration


Don't you love the idea of painting the inside of a hutch, bookcase, or china cabinet in pink and filling it with a collection of blue and white Chinese porcelain, celadon, or blanc de Chine? That pink tassel is wonderful too.

This is gorgeous. I don't have any pink in my house, but this would definitly be an option I would entertain.

La Dolfina said...

Yes! And I would love that silver dome too! I love how haphazard things are displayed. The whole image is wonderful.

I recently saw a cabinet where the exterior was painted black, and interiors were painted orange. It was gorgeous. It would have been perfect for a Halloween-related photo shoot.

beautiful...and you KNOW I love that gray.

I am finally posting some of my chinoiserie pieces on my blog on Monday. Thanks for the inspiration...

The casual styling is really nice to see. I have to second the desire to acquire the silver dome!

Definitely an inspirational photo that is very portable.
