Pagodas, Pink and Perfect Bed Heads

Following the theme of Hollywood Regency and chinoiserie, I have to share my latest 'must have'.  PAGODAS.  These temple icons look as good as a blue and white ginger jars, faux bamboo.  They are very regal and quaint.  A pagoda is the general term for a tiered tower with multiple eaves common in China, Japan, Korea, Vietnam and Nepal.  Most pagodas were built to have a religious function, most commonly Buddhist and were often located in or near temples - but they're not temples.  Fascinating.

The fact that this style influenced architecture and design from roof shingles through to objet d'art.
