Budget Friendly Chinoiserie Monograms

People are always asking me about budget friendly Chinoiserie monogrammed linens, since Leontine Linens are gorgeous but quite costly. One choice is to print out an example of a Chinoiserie monogram - find many examples on my Pinterest board - and see if your local monogram shop can copy it.

Another great idea is to find pillows, sheets, or towels in Greek key fabric or with Greek key or fretwork embroidery and have them monogrammed in a traditional block or script. The Greek key and fretwork give you the look for far less! I did this with Greek key towels I found at Marshall's. I have shown examples below.
