I'm A Giant Challenge - The Pink Chinoiserie Bedroom


This master bedroom was inspired by the David Kaihoi bedroom from House Beautiful. He found a pile of dilapidated 18th century pink Chinoiserie wallpaper at auction that nobody else wanted and pieced it together to create a stunning bedroom. I had saved the box from a Limited Edition de Gournay for Anthousa diffuser that was too beautiful to throw away. I knew that one day I would find a use for it. I cut the box up and used it to wallpaper this room. I even left the silver leafed Anthousa and de Gournay lettering you can see above the bedside table. Here are the details of the room -

de Gournay pink Chinoiserie wallpaper
Leopard carpet
A hand painted French bed upholstered with hand painted fabric
Linen sheets
An antique silk duvet
A feather pillow
A gilded birdcage chandelier
A Paule Marrot print
A black and gold lacquered Chinoiserie table
A silver leafed pig bank
A silver topiary
A Tiffany & Co Christmas gift - I can't wait to open it!
You will also see here sneak peeks of the bathroom, dining room, living room and roof.

What a beautiful look! I am a residential stylist, and this whole thing is just jaw-dropping. So far, the kitchen is my favorite, although I wish you would remove the shopping bags from the kitchen floor since the room is utter perfection on its own. I feel that they are distracting to the eye. (Loved the use of bags in the dressing room, just not in the kitchen). I hope you will take my comment as constructive feedback, and not as criticism. You have done masterful job, and I can't imagine anyone coming even close to the level of detail you have achieved.

I really have enjoyed this series - I worked in a miniature and dollhouse store when I was in college and you have reminded me that the SOMEWHERE I have a black chinoiserie cabinet tucked away. You've done a particularly nice job of making your house inhabited with the special touches - packages to unwrap, cards to mail, etc. You've also done a fabulous job with the scale!
