This entryway is a perfect example of how just a touch of Chinoiserie can really jazz up a space. This entrance is quite traditional and monochromatic with its white walls, white ottomans, white framed art and mirror, neutral sea grass carpet, and brown woods of the floor, stairs, and console table. The pair of blanc de Chine foo dog lamps with their brown lampshades stay with this palette, but interject whimsy, character, and style. Imagine this space without them.
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.
