I love it. It's wonderful. Very Fromentalish. I have recently bought a new house in which there is a pretty useless shower room which, it has been decided, is to be a guest jungle bathroom and lav with a dark glass roof. I can just see these colours and this pattern leaping in wild abandon all over the walls.

They are wonderful! They make me happy too! The colors are so saturated and rich...perfect for the asian theme...great post!


I would describe it as effervescent!!
The colours are lovely, Helen.

Yes Cat..but it was a long day.
I did not get any message from you a couple of days ago I just checked incase I missed it. Lovely to hear from you thanks for commenting.


So glad I found your blog! What a load of inspiration and beauty. I never thought of stenciling a chinoiserie "paper" onto my entry wall...always thought it was just an over-priced dream :)
