Chinoiserie is one of my all time favorite words…I like how it looks on paper and I love the way it sounds (sheen-waz-a-ree). Chinoiserie, according to Webster, is a style that reflects Chinese qualities or motifs, an object or decoration. Europe fell in love with the Asian influence of China and Japan in the early to mid 18th century.
Beth Connolly pens the blog, Chinoiserie Chic, where she shares her love of Chinoiserie and design. Lucky for us, Beth is showcasing her top 10 Chinoiserie wallpapers and her picks are very shareworthy.
You can appreciate the timeless beauty of these papers, even if this design style is not your favorite. Chinoiserie designs make a huge impact. These papers look great in foyers, powder rooms, bedrooms, walk-in closets, or framed out with molding creating a piece of artwork. A little Chinoiserie goes a long way.
Chinoiserie wallpapers are found in a number of the Hirshfield’s wallpaper books. Browse on your own or let the sales staff get you started in the right direction. Unable to find the paper that speaks to you, the design studio has a great collection of higher end books for your viewing pleasure.
