a chinoiserie chic table

Chinoiserie décor is something I am seeing more and more of and really loving these days.  While it’s not new, I think it’s being increasingly utilized in a variety of mediums. If done properly, it’s a design detail adds a great deal of color and character to space or event.  There are so many incredible fabrics out there that are chinoiserie themed and stunning.

I recently came across a chinoiserie table scape that I really liked the idea of for a dinner party or even a ladies lunch.  While researching different pieces to get the look, I came across some beautiful dinnerware options to incorporate.  I went with the pink/sienna colored plates to show you how to get the look in this image, however this is a concept that you can have a great deal of fun with by switching up the colors and selecting a fabric pattern that resonates with you {and the layers to compliment it}.

 

 

1. These plates are by Scalamandre for Lenox at Bloomingdale’s and come in some other fun colors as well {chocolate brown, torquoise and purple}.
2. I love this bamboo flatware.  It is the Tokyo collection by Alain Saint-Jonais made in France with stainless steel and a boxwood handle {dishwasher safe too!}.  I found this flatware at Michelle Willey boutique in my neighborhood {available in-store} or on-line here.
3. This bamboo wine stopper from Aerin Lauder’s home collection is a great add to the table {or a lovely hostess gift}.
4. These vintage goblets from Etsy would be a great way to get the look as would these black wine glasses from Target.
5. This fabric by Schumacher would be perfect for a custom table cloth or napkins to complete the setting.

Just add some beautiful flowers {I would add a chartreuse colored flower to this mix} and your table will be stunning!

yours in a well dressed table,
