A Chinoiserie Christmas - Tartan & Chinoiserie

Scott Meacham Wood
This past weekend was the Scottish Walk here in Alexandria and it got me in a tartan mood. I started thinking about combining tartan and Chinoiserie - can it be done? Scott Meacham Wood uses a Chinese chest in this wonderful room above. Lindsay at The Pursuit of Style is thinking about trimming a tartan Christmas tree skirt in Greek key. Ralph Lauren's room has tartan and a stunning blue ginger jar. I also like a the zebra rug layered on top of the oriental rug in this room. A great idea to borrow.
