Chinoiserie Chic in Florida: The Living Room

Beth Connolly's Chinoiserie Chic virtual renovation continues! Today Beth brings Palm Beach Chic to this incredible historic Chinoiserie home located in the Chinese Village of Coral Gables, Florida. It is no secret that I am crazy about flamingos, and so I am naturally in love with this fabulous flamingo inspired living room.  Last week Beth blogged about how flamingos are the "next big thing," and I couldn't agree more. Be sure to check back tomorrow for more flamingo love, and next Monday as Beth continues her virtual renovation of the Chinese Village Home.

This week I have done a virtual makeover of the living room. This room is very glamorous, with a Hollywood Regency vibe as well as very Palm Beach. The walls are painted in a beautiful lavender and the floors are black ebonized wood layered with two zebra cowhides. An enormous pink flamingo Audobon print is very Palm Beach Chic. A pair of black Marjorie Skouras chandeliers are a dramatic choice. I adore the combination of pink and black with a touch of green. An antique black and gold Chinoiserie coffee table and a pair of antique Chinese garden stools are very Old School Chinoiserie. Very modern choices include the Jonathan Adler Whitaker angled sofa, brass peacock side tables, and Maxime chairs in green velvet. I have added a pair of salmon pink velvet zebra pillows and gilded lotus lamps as well. Next up we tackle the master bedroom.
