Red walls and a canary yellow ceiling give this room by Ruthie Sommers a Chinoiserie vibe, even though it does not have Chinoiserie decor. What a fearless use of color in this study in Ruthie's own home.
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.
