My Picks for a Chinoiserie Dining Room Makeover


A follower asked yesterday for some quick ideas on creating a Chinoiserie dining room using a blue Chinoiserie fabric for the chairs, a faux bamboo chandelier, a pagoda mirror, and a few accessories. They already have furniture.

The chairs will be upholstered or slipcovered in Schumacher Nanjing in Porcelain above. This wonderful red pagoda mirror is from Horchow. (Tip-Horchow is constantly running one day sales with 20-30% off everything-sign up for their emails.)



This faux bamboo chandelier is available in six colors from Shades of Light.



A pair of these Chinese pagodas would be great on the sideboard at $16.95 each from Z Gallerie.



These ideas are classics and are quite budget friendly as well. Send me a picture when you finish!

Bamboo is such a statement piece in any room. I just purchased bamboo chairs for my breakfast room, and I adore them. Fresh and fun!

It's amazing how I notice Chinoiserie now because of you. But you are the queen when it comes to finding the real treasures!
