If there is something I don't tend to tire of, it is chinoiserie. Just when I think it's feeling predictable and over done, I fall in love again. At this point, my feeling is chinoiserie designs are timeless and far too gorgeous to grow old. Over the years I've pretty much fearlessly embraced color and have learned I would rather take risks than be boring. Bailey's home is featured in this month's House Beautiful and it is far from bland. She beautifully covered her dining walls in a Zuber paper. (see the beautiful panels below) I also have a fondness for most things French. (including my heritage) so my love with chinois panels (that are often hand painted in France) runs deep. The only down side? The price tag! See the rest of Bailey's exuberant home here.
