Have you noticed alot of asian inspired home decor pieces floating around of late?
Is this Chinoiserie style (a French term meaning “Chinese-esque” or “that which reflects Chinese artistic influence”) popping up everywhere or is it a case of 'now I'm noticing it more!?'
It might be a bit like when you get a new car suddenly you start seeing them all over the road, or when you get an iphone then you notice everyone has an iphone, actually hang on . . .everyone does have an iphone!
The lovely thing about chinoiserie is that it works well with any type of style adding a touch of elegance & sophistication to the room. Whether it is wallpaper, porcelain ginger jars, bamboo furniture, ceramic chinese stools, tableware or fabric try a touch of chinoiserie to freshen up the space!
These designers appear to do it VERY well! Charlotte Moss, Alessandra Branca, Meg Braff, Ruthie Sommers & Mary McDonald.
