I’m in high point, north carolina for the spring 2017 furniture market. chinoiserie is a trend. finally a trend i love, one that i embrace always in my design work. actually chinoiserie is one of the themes for my new henredon market set up. i’m on trend i guess. 

what i’m loving is chinoiserie mixed with modern art and bold color. as you all know i have a crush on cobalt blue right now, i always will, and i really love it with chinoiserie. it’s my theme right now. it feels fresh, it’s little unexpected, it’s kinda cool, i really love it. 

i thought i’d share with you some of my favorite iconic rooms decorated with chinoiserie…i’m throwing in some cobalt blue yves klein art work. he’s the master of cobalt. do you love this mix? i do!

to see more of how i’m mixing cobalt and chinoiserie right now, take a look at my instagram

not sure why, but right now i’m looking to minimalism and texture for inspiration. these pinterest pins reflect my current mood. agnes martin art, rattan, washed oak, trench coats, denim, punches of black and of course touches of blue.
