Jonathan Berger - Pink Belongs in a Girl's Bedroom, Not Your Entryway
Our new series is entitled, Great Chinoiserie Rooms That Break the Rules in Style. I have assembled dozens of wonderful Chinoiserie rooms that break traditional decorating rules beautifully. The foyer above by Jonathan Berger is a great example of breaking the rule that pink is meant for a nursery or girl's bedroom only. His use of Benjamin Moore Razzle Dazzle on the walls is stunning and dramatic. He mixes it with a Louis XV needlepoint chair and console, an Italian mirror, Chinese porcelain, and a large shell. Oops - I think that's a second broken rule. Aren't seashells just supposed to be used in beach houses?
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.
