Earlier on in the week I stumbled upon a gorgeous home office which was very much influenced by the Chinoiserie style … I’ve always loved this style, I think its beautiful, elegant and can add a touch of pzazz to any space …

So what exactly is Chinoiserie? I hear you say. Chinoiserie is a french term which basically means “Chinese-esque” and refers to a recurring theme in European artistic styles which reflect Chinese artistic influence … this style has been around since the 17th Century!

Chinoiserie is characterised in the asymmetrical format of fanciful imagery of an imaginery China – it attempts to imitate and recreate what one would see on Chinese porcelain. Chinoiserie tends to be prevelant on furniture and wallpaper through the use of lacquerlike materials.
