AM DECO is now back with a new inspiration…best of friend AM finally decided to weigh in again on AM DECO…this time with all things Asian or anything Chinoiserie.
Just last week, received an email from AM with several links to things she likes that are “Chinoiserie”…including a fantastic Swarovski pink crystal chandelier which looks like a sprig from a cherry blossom tree and a white resin Asian Goddess lamp…both very AM…all with a very specific continent of inspiration – Asia.
AM started murmuring about this Asian inspired home decor interest (obsession) when we were in France this summer (me, AM, her husband JE and some other friends). As we window shopped through the enchanting streets of Paris, from time to time I would see a piece of furniture or home accessory I liked and exclaim, “Ooooh that is pretty. I like that. Look.”. Each time, AM would unequivocally respond,”I don’t like it…it is not Chinoiserie…I am doing my guest room in an Asian theme and it’s not Asian themed” and off she would trot. I will commend AM on her design focus and her ability to find what she wants…and if she can’t find it, she has it made…I have no doubt that AM will design a gorgeous Asian inspired guest room (and after, I hope, will be able to appreciate non-Chinoiserie home furnishings too…LOL!)
For the next few weeks or months you’ll be seeing a lot of interesting Chinoiserie or Asian themed accessories and furniture…this week it is lighting…who knows what next week will bring…we do know, however, until this guest room is done, we will be seeing many more of AM DECO’s Asian inspired brilliant home decor finds!
