Lately around here, we have been discussing a lot about Feng Shui. I am always doing research for you. I enjoy learning new things to not only share and inspire my clients but to share with you too. As I learn more and more about the art of decorating for Chi + good energy flow throughout the home, I fall more in love with moments of chinoiserie.
I can remember when I was young, black lacquer and brass chinoiserie screens, trays, items around the home were in such style. I loved that chic 90's vibe and I am finding it inspiring harmony in a totally glam yet chic bohemian way.
I've always been a major fan of these glam screens. Did you catch the one in Jessica's bedroom tour? I was so inspired by this bedroom look, I decided to go on the hunt for some new black and gold bedside tables and I kind of wanted something with an element of chinoiserie.
Over the weekend, I went to my favorite thrift haunt, Scout Design Studio and found the perfect black and gold chinoiserie style bedside tables. Can't wait to show you them in my bedroom. Here is a little peek:
Okay, so they could totally be tacky but I am obsessed. They are exactly what I was wanting. The key to doing tacky chinoiserie well is getting the balance right. Just a pop is all you need and that will make a major impact.
I especially love dishes inspired by Chinoiserie. They can make the dinner table lively and fun. Mixing different ones is a fun look too.
Of course the DeGournay wallpaper is always going to be classic and so glamorous. Don't shy away from this on your wall. Just keep it fresh by pairing it with more modern and tailored finishings to keep it current and not outdated.
You could snag a pair of panels like these to add just a touch of the glam look. Chairish has a ton of glam chinoiserie.
Do you have chinoiserie elements at home? Leave me a comment below and share with me how you like to add it to your home.
