Chinese Inspired...Chinoise...

I just love modern colors mixed with traditional asian elements. The below photos and settings really grabbed me. A fashionable shop aretail shop in Shanghai. Bottom photo: I actually saw this in the latest issue of Budget Travel. The Shanghai Inn in Bangkok. You simply must check their website out for fabulous photos of their inn on their opening page. The decor and colors are simply brilliant. You can also see many more Gorgeous photos of this in at All Things Bright and Beautiful Blog. Definitely worth checking out.

Just LOVE the lacquered black wood floors in the formal dining room below. Below: Interesting mix of Chinese styled furniture in a traditional Japanese room with shoji screens.
