Chinoiserie - Traditional or Modern?

7.26.2011

Don't you think a black chest with a gold mirror always looks fantastic in an entry?  Or anywhere else for that matter.   I think the combination is beautiful.  I came across two chests and two mirrors on 1st Dibs that I'm crazy about.  Even though they create two completely different looks, I'd be thrilled to have either.  If you were to win a 1st Dibs giveaway (wish there were one) which would you choose?

Happy Monday!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend.  I thought I'd share some blue and white inspiration to start off the week.  Enjoy!

It's the beginning of the week, and I'm starting a new tradition where I post favorite blue and white images Mondays.  In my opinion, that's a fantastic start to the week!
