The Olympics in China have been a visual feast so far. With the spectacular opening ceremonies and all of the images of Beijing, I'm inspired to post a couple ideas for working a little Eastern flavor into an interior.

These great boxes, made with reclaimed walnut shells, are a quick, inexpensive way to personalize a room. The pieces are a modern, environmentally-conscious take on lacquer boxes.

These gorgeous table lamps feature classic Asian porcelain patterns, with ornate detail and rich color.
They fit wonderfully with a range of decors, from traditional, to country, chic and eclectic, too.

Finally, I just love the Shanghai Collection from well-known designer Robert Sonneman. Brilliant polished chrome and warm opal glass is a great combination.
Enjoy the Olympics!
