CHINOISERIE AND BLUE AND WHITE ~ PART ONE

I have always loved blue and white porcelain and other Chinoiserie pieces, but I have never been as in love with using it in my room designs as I am now.  Evidently I am not alone, because you see more and more rooms filled with the beautiful art. Jennifer at The Pink Pagoda and Beth at Chinoiserie Chic have both had a lot to do with my obsession.

There are so many images that I want to share, so there will be two parts to this topic. Visit my Pinterest to see other Chinoiserie/Blue and White images, and the pins of other lovers of all things Chinoiserie and blue and white.  More of these images can be found on previous posts on my blog.  ENJOY!
