Chinoiserie is Chic?

You BET!! I've been pondering the decor for the dining room and decided I want a little Chinoiserie flava in there.

My dining room has a built in that looks a little pagoda-y to me... so I figured I'd make that the decor element I would draw my inspiration from.

Question is, how intricate, how bold, what colors, what motifs?

I'm really drawn to this last image. The orange is a nice bright for the kinda dark dining room and I just love the black and white finish of the chair.

It feels like a start in the right direction as I get easily overwhelmed by pattern. The sizable motif, that only has 3 colors and the more subdued yet graphic furniture. I like.
