I was just telling someone last night at a party that surprisingly i never feel like i dont have something to blog about, i guess i rarely feel uninspired! there are things i love and there are things i really love that believe it or not i haven’t featured on the blog! every time anyone asks me what are my favorite things  (see a feature here), chinoiserie wallpaper is always at the top of the list- and surprisingly i haven’t blogged about it yet! so today is the day, a great week for it- Chinoiserie wallpaper, a friday favorite!

where do i start? i love chinoiserie wallpaper because it is pretty, always elegant, never wrong, intricate and fine, beautiful and detailed, traditional yet modern! i really love it! i pretty much try to use it somehow in most design projects, my go to is gracie wallpaper, either in a dining room or a bedroom, even an entry and a few powder rooms! i love it from floor to ceiling or inset in paneling, also chic framed like art work, and i can’t wait to make a screen out of it!

chinoiserie wallpaper- always pretty, perfectly timeless, beyond chic, my forever Favorite! and listen if miles redd, tory burch, michael s. smith, aerin lauder, and jeffrey bilhuber love to use it, you can pretty much be certain you should use it- it’s called being chinoiserie chic! enjoy!
