Happy Memorial Day - Stripes & Chinoiserie Inspiration Boards

A living room in Nantucket
Happy Memorial Day and a thank you for all the sacrifices the men and women of the Armed Forces make every day, to those who have served and especially to those who have died protecting this wonderful country.

I love stripes and I love combining stripes and Chinoiserie. Here are eleven inspiration boards and my Pinterest board with dozens of spaces to inspire you. A Chinoiserie Chic tip - stripes add a fresh, clean, bold, geometric, and masculine edge to a room with Chinoiserie, keeping it more gender neutral.
