I must admit, I am, in most cases, not a huge fan of chinoiserie. I'm also a nonfan of toile, aside from Hazelnut's New Orleans toile and Sheila Bridges' Harlem toile. But, the two styles blended together in this Chinoise Garden Bird Toile Plate Set ($224) is actually quite the eye pleaser. Too pretty to eat off of, I'd hang this plate set on the walls of a midnight gray kitchen with slick, white-lacquered furniture, or place one on my dresser as a jewelry catch-all. Do you love it?
