Crushing Chinoiserie

Chinoiserie has been a long-time favorite of mine.  At first thought it might seem a bit strange to use it in children's decor but because of the playful nature of the pattern it works perfectly. Here are a few examples of ways to bring it into your child's decor:

I think if you want an all over room look go for wallpaper in this motif. A white background is more subtle.

And a colored is more bold.

Or just bring it in as a fabric on a headboard or pillow.
