Red, White & Blue Inspiration Board


For this Memorial Day weekend, here is an entryway inspiration board in red, white, and blue Chinoiserie. This would be perfect for a beach house in Nantucket, but I love this combination anywhere. I have used a Blue Dot Strut console in Watermelon, a pair of ginger jars from Charlotte & Ivy, a navy blue pagoda mirror, a pair of Dana Gibson ikat lamps, a pair of Charles Edwards pagoda bell lanterns, a pair of antique blanc de Chine Italian greyhounds, and a blue and white striped rug.

Red, white, and blue combines so well with Chinoiserie - think white blanc de Chine, blue and white Chinese porcelain, and Chinese red lacquer. I have a Pinterest board filled with red, white, and blue rooms here. Here is a sampling.
