Chinoiserie-Chic Entryway

A bold bench, demi-lune table and black-painted door with windows add character and functionality to this design.

"Lisa Borgnes Giramonti's Los Angeles, California entry, enveloped in Flowering Quince wallpaper from Clarence House, is welcoming, classic, and of course beautiful," says Courtney Barnes, designer and author of the popular Style Court blog. "But some of the unexpected elements are a nod to her passion for eccentricities. For example, the bold red stair runner and the sheep by the door. These really add personal warmth."
