Timothy De Clue Design L.L.C added this to A Touch of Chinoiserie
Just a simple touch here...
This space actually feels a little more "fresh" than my grandmother's house. Even though she has a sunroom with big windows (and even though she lives in Annapolis), this much white and the contrasting blue would be too nautical for her. However, those detailed candlesticks are perfect for her. actually a little more "fresh" than nan, but those candlesticks add just the right amount of detail

Knubby knits add a casual touch to this otherwise formal living room. The variation of color and texture complements the clean and classic feel of the space.

I don't think you can go far wrong with a blue and white colour scheme. I like the knitted cushions which are a little bit unusual and the white drapes. Also the room seems to compliment the garden outside. A very fresh, clean looking room.
