When I moved into my house, my mother generously gave me some things she couldn't use in her new place. Among them is a lovely yellow silk four panel screen, which fit with just an inch to spare on my unused chimney breast. I purchased two pale yellow ottomans (ottomen?) piped in white from Target. Since I already had a yellow flowered sofa, it pulled the living room together.
When I look around the rest of my tiny house, I see Chinese influences everywhere, from the blue & white toile de Jouy bedspreads from my brother-in-law to the similar, but not identical duvet cover, to the similar but not identical shower curtain, to my growing collection of Willow-ware china in blue, green and red to the heirloom jade and gold ring I have (one of the only pieces of jewelry that didn't get stolen in my catastrophic robbery last month).
My best friend is adopting a daughter from China later this spring and I want to take a page from Style Court and Absolutely Beautiful Things and design the baby announcement, keeping the Chinoiserie theme.
