Chinoiserie....










my heart tends to flutter when i look at pictures of amazing chinoiserie wallpaper....it's so classic and timeless. i think one of my favorite pics is the one of the nursery- how brilliant is that and so unexpected (i'm sure she won't be a diva). i think that is why my heart skipped a beat when i found this....and if there is any left, i'm totally using her ;)

I had never considered chinoiserie my style much before this year, but I have been loving it. Especially these chinoiserie rooms with eclectic and modern touches!

I toured some gorgeous model homes in my area (southern CA) this past weekend and this was a trend throughout. LOVE it! I want to do the same to my house now! :)

I have to say the Nursery is my absolute fave! What a sweet room for a baby girl!

If I wasn't living in a rental, there are two things I would do ... one of which is use a ton of amazing wallpaper like these you have posted (the other would be to get rid of the nasty rental lighting)! Love the post!

so pretty! I especially love when it's mixed with a few modern touches like the bottom pic with the chevron rug and modern table and lamps - it makes the room look more current and less formal. :)
