Three Takes on Chinoiserie

I enjoyed this post from One Kings Lane's blog on Chinoiserie. Three of our favorite designers - Bunny Williams, Ruthie Sommers and Grant Gibson - share short sound bites on my favorite design style.

I think Ruthie's style of "Elegant and Eclectic" is most similar to my own. How amazing is that styled console pictured above? Her use of varying heights, colors and textures makes the vignette so rich and interesting.  


  1. Daniela, good picks! I adore Bunny's take and I love Grant Gibson's Dining Drama! For me, Ruthie's needs a bit of editing, just too much going on in a design concept that is actually great!

When you posted about the Claudette bird plates from World Market I was thrilled because they match my curtains and were just what I was looking for, I just had not thought to look at World Market! So thank you for sharing the beautiful things you discover! I also adored all the nursery designs you posted, they were so inspiring!!! Keep up the great work!!!! :) --Liz, Manassas, VA
