My Favorite Keyword is....

CHIPPENDALE!!

I am really into the Chippendale/Chinois look. I didn't realize how much I really loved the look until I came across this blog, Chinoiserie Chic - (http://www.chinoiseriechic.blogspot.com/). So - I have a huge Chippendale mirror, an elephant garden stool, my bamboo dining chairs, there's just elements everywhere. It's like this blog screamed, "Hello!"

Anyway -- so, going back to my keyword... "Chippendale" is the best search lead ever -- it's great on EBay, Etsy, Google, 1st dibs... You really find the coolest pieces. I came across this amazing bedroom set on 1st dibs and loved it. I am not a huge fan of the color, red -- but I loved the shape and style so much, I had to post it. I could just imagine those red mirrors framing either side of a bed.







Oh! I found the exact image of my mirror that I have hanging in my living room!! My picture didn't look as professional - so I used this one from http://www.1stdibs.com/. Isn't it amazing? I have to high back chairs on either side of it - and once I commit to fabric and reupholster, I'll get the picture up. What do you think??
