I wanted to let you know that I’m hanging out in Saskatchewan this weekend so that the super sweet Sarah can sun herself somewhere warm. 😉 Come over and visit me at Prairie Perch to see what I’ve been loving lately!

Well, this post was supposed to be written last night, but we had no power in our neighborhood! The power shut off just after we had drilled the first hole for a curtain rod we were putting up… so thank goodness for cordless power tools, flashlights and candles! It’s our most romantic DIY yet! 😉 I’m excited to show you the new addition to our eating area very soon! More excited than Jason was to have his picture taken that’s for sure, haha!
In the meantime, I’d love it if you would come and join me over at Cottage & Vine today, where I’m sharing my Favorite Room! If you haven’t met Rene before, make sure you say hi! And for those of you visiting from Cottage & Vine, hello there! I’m glad to meet you!
Good Morning! We have a guest on the blog today! Welcome Joanna! If anyone is in need of some new lighting, read on for today’s giveaway!!
Hi there! I’m Joanna, a writer for Arcadian Lighting, the online go-to source for all things lighting. I love interior design, architecture and art. I spend my days finding the loveliest designs on the web and then sharing them through guest posts like this one about decorating with the charming look of chinoiserie for FlutterFlutter.
Dating back to 17th century Europe, chinoiserie made a comeback in the 20th century and is still going strong to this day. Whether it is a bold print on the bed or a Chinese-esque light fixture, a modern interpretation of classic chinoiserie can be found in the rooms below. Thanks for letting me share!
A simplistic, nature-based room gets a touch of chinoiserie with a bird motif on the bed. A retro light fixture adds interest.
This boldly-hued room boasts several examples of chinoiserie. A classic wingback comes alive with an Asian-inspired print.
Chinoiserie fabric panels give a sophisticated feel to this living space. A pair of table lamps add to the ambience of the room.
A beautiful powder room comes alive with a chinoiserie print on the walls that spills over onto a petit bench.
A single chinoiserie print pillow sets the mood for this Asian-inspired living room. Paper lanterns and a vase of cherry blossoms complete the look.
An accent wall in an Asian-inspired print gives this kitchen a glamorous feel. The unique pendant light above the table finishes the look.
A chinoiserie duvet gives this industrial space a classic feel. The trunk and suitcase at the end of the bed give the space a well-traveled look.
A delightful girl’s bedroom comes alive with chinoiserie-infused wallpaper. The print is sophisticated enough to age with the child.
What do you think of these beautiful, intricate patterns? Are you inspired to bring a little chinoiserie chic into your home decor? For fresh interior design ideas daily, stop by Arcadian Lighting’s blog! (Images: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8)
