Saturday Inspiration - Blanc de Chine


What is a more exquisite example of Chinoiserie than the pure, pristine, sophisticated elegance of Blanc de Chine? It is by far my favorite combination of white and Chinoiserie, so I have featured it in this Saturday Inspiration post. Perhaps you will be motivated to start your own collection of Blanc de Chine. Next we will look at more ways of bringing white Chinoiserie into the home.

I know this is off the point but... I love your brass lantern holding a white candle in the pictures from your home. I've been looking for just such a one. Any chance you know if it is available somewhere for purchase?

CC - If you check out Gumps website under sale items, they have a similar verdigris one that is very nice.
