Chic, Colourful and Chinese – part 1

So I guess it’s a kinda obvious link, but I’ve found myself pondering Chinese lacquered cabinets today.  Sleek and black or crazy and colourful, a pair of these are guaranteed to give a boost to any room.

Add some to a chinoiseire or exposed brick backdrop for a look that’s respectively chic and classy, or rough and edgy:

Go for monochrome glamour with white painted floorboards or a knock-your-socks-off colour punch!

LOVE LOVE LOOOOOVE them paired here with the ceiling beams and canopy bed:

And my jaw may or may not have just hit the floor upon seeing this tangerine beaut.  The ‘shabby Chinese chic’ washstand is pretty bananas too.

And I’m not 100% convinced about the white leather sofa/stools, but these mile high kitchen cabinets are pretty much le bee’s knees:

    I’m having a hard time deciding which I like best. I love all the color (and I’m with you on that sofa…meh), the turquoise, the tangerine. All so beautiful. Even black! I’m gaining a new appreciation for black!

    I love the tangerine one. And I love that sofa! it’s very similar to one at M&S which is brilliantly priced. Love the de Gournay wallaper too. So envious of your new exciting life!
