Decorate Your Interiors With Pagodas
A pagoda is the general term in the English language for a tiered tower with sometimes as many as 15 stories, each projecting an upward curving tiled roof.

Carolyne in Charleston
Today is the final chapter in the Charleston Series of beautiful houses. A few years ago I showcased Carolyne Roehm’s latest book that corresponded with her visit to the Skirted Roundtable HERE. We were surprised by Roehm. We didn’t know what to expect and what we got was a vivacious, fun woman who was very warm and friendly and intelligent.

It reminds me of this pagoda door from a 2005 issue of House Beautiful. Do you think Danika at O'verlays/Gorgeous Shiny Things could fabricate something like this? Or perhaps Linda at Calling It Home? I love the contrast of the crisp white against the Chinese red walls - stunning.
