Every Thursday on CasaSugar, I'll give you a decorating theme and ask you to go Casa Craving for items that fit the theme. (Here's a post explaining what a Casa Craving is and how to create one.)
Until recently, chinoiserie was found primarily in stuffy abodes. Now, the European design style, which depicts traditional Chinese motifs, is getting a trendy update. Modern chinoiserie patterns and lines are at once elegant, clean, and contemporary.
Since I've been admiring this aluminum Anthropologie Chinoiserie Bed ( $1,898 to $1,998), I want to see you guys design a modern chinoiserie bedroom around it. So let's all createCasa Cravings for the Asian-inspired patterns and accents you would use to complete the look. I'll feature the results next Wednesday, August 22. Just tag your Cravings with the phrase modern bedroom. Even better, you can create a list of your bookmarks; TeamSugar has a great tutorial on listmaking if you're not sure how. Please let me know if you have any questions. For a list of online home stores to try,
