Bejing "shabby-chic"

On a recent business trip to Bejing, I had the opportunity to take a day to see some of the countryside, and I asked my guide to show me something authentic. We stopped at a portion of the Great Wall that is not on the regular visitor route,  and hiked through some lovely walnut groves to arrive at this divinely simple house... 

Get ready, the texture and simplicity of this home is simply marvelous...

This is exterior stucco wall, so fabulous!

Of course, the pre-requisite "tribute wall"...note how neatly everything is kept, and so clean.

I love the juxtaposition of the walls against the ornately embroidered fabric at the doorway, the rich red of the cabinet, all the colorful tea tins...and yes, lunch was divine also!
