This chic and cozy multi-purpose room we designed features with a group of curvy boule ivory chairs, an organic round cement and stone powder coffee table. A rattan bar cabinet in the background has a warm, inviting and relaxing vibe. An vintage portrait drawing makes the space interesting. A chinoiserie wallpaper elevates the space with elegance and timelessness. The stunning contemporary rug is machine-washable.
Cozy chair from the goop x CB2 collection is “proof that things don’t have to be cold and hard to be chic,” says Gwyneth Paltrow. “We’re taking the compromise out of the equation with chic furniture that’s to be lived in and loved.” Lush, texture-rich fabric feels like a true boucle (for a much lower price). Generously scaled with a mod silhouette that feels slightly vintage and totally high-end.
Designed by Mermelada Estudio, handmade coffee table resounds with global style for indoor/outdoor use. Inspired by North African drums, substantial surface combines cement, stone powder, granite and marble powder to a natural stone effect. Matte black steel legs offer modern lift. Maintain table’s honed beauty and natural intonations with clear car wax or stone floor polish.
Inspired by The Whitby Hotel just steps away from some of New York’s best museums and galleries, this bouquet celebrates contemporary floral design using more traditional flowers like faux hydrangeas and roses. Faux Chinese lanterns and wisps of mimosa leaves gives this oval-shaped beauty a playful style.

Chinoiserie has been around centuries thanks to its timeless and elegant design. Chinoiserie wallpaper was used to be a status symbol because they were all hand-painted in the past. With the advanced digital printing technologies, the Chinoiserie wallpaper has became more affordable over the years although we still love to offer our clients the hand-painted ones if they have the budget. Chinoiserie is the European interpretation and imitation of Chinese and other East Asian artistic traditions, especially in the decorative arts, garden design, architecture, literature, theater, and music. We have blogged chinoiserie in dining rooms, today we are going to share 21 Chinoiserie bedroom ideas.

The color of blue has been huge in the year of 2020. As matter of the fact, the color of blue has been always one of the most likeable colors by people globally. The magic often lies in how to play with pattern and texture to create a sophisticated and layered look in the sea of blue that is not only calm, soothing but also rich, warm and inviting, the way that we want our home to feel. Mark D. Sikies is one of the masters to often use blue-and-white palette to create a modern classic beauty in people’s life. Today we are going to tour his latest project for fashion designer Karen Kane . Mark Sikies re-imagined Karen’s dark and dated 1980 home in Pacific Palisades, California and transformed it into a relaxed and gracious Provençal estate with a vivid dance of blues and aged artisanal finishes. Here are some of our favorites.

We came across this beautiful home by designer Alexandra Kaehler when we search some inspiration from internet. This is actually her own home. We love the sophisticated interiors with a livable vibe by bringing in colors, floral prints and amazing wallpaper. Here are some of our favorite highlights.
“Spring Fever Exquisite botanical illustrations by 16th century Flemish artist Joris Hoefnagel inspire the playful and decorative motif of Spring Fever. The interpretation of Hoefnagel’s drawings provide the foundation for the repeated design, which transforms the wallcovering from a delicate pattern to a powerful visual experience.” Timothy said that his Spring Fever collection has spirit of chinoiserie. We couldn’t agree with him more.
The beautiful China Porcelain vintage blue, the graceful and intricate details of hand-painted botanical blooms and butterflies are rather fascinating. The term chinoiserie, which comes from the French word chinois, or “Chinese,” denotes that chinoiserie did not, in fact, come directly from Asia but is instead a European interpretation of Asian culture and decorative arts. The style originated in the 17th century, in tandem with Europe’s flourishing trade with China and other countries of East Asia. As a style, chinoiserie is related to the Rococo style. Both styles are characterized by exuberant decoration, asymmetry, a focus on materials, and stylized nature and subject matter that focuses on leisure and pleasure.
From traditional to modern, chinoiserie goes well with every look and adds a sense of timelessness and sophistication to any space.
We love the more modern approach for Chinoisseire wallpaper design in the past several years. It feels so fresh and chic in terms of color, scale and motif applications.
The Major Motifs in chinoserie include Foo dogs, pagodas, nature scenes and dragon.
Foo Dog: These date back thousands of years to Imperial China. And despite their name, foo dogs are actually lions, made to stand guard outside palaces and temples. Foo dogs typically come in pairs—one male and one female—to represent the balance of yin and yang.
Pagodas:While an integral part of East Asian architecture, pagodas actually originated as sacred sites in India. The spread of Buddhism brought them to China, where they were assimilated into the regional style.
Nature scenes: As wallpapers became popular in European homes, the upper class turned to chinoiserie designs, many of which were handmade and often very costly. Lighthearted nature scenes were all the rage, including lush garden vignettes and sprawling floral motifs.
Dragons: Symbolizing strength and good luck, dragons hold a prominent place in Chinese mythology and folklore. Historical emperors favored dragon motifs in clothing and interiors; today, they surface on all manner of ceramics, silk screens, and works of art.

With Spring approaching, we are more obsessed to light and airy home interiors. And what really made us want to talk about today’s home(located at Park Ave.), besides its lightness, is its way to masterfully bring past and present together with the charm of East Coast sophistication.
This Park Avenue abode gets an airy update by American renowned interior design firm Kemble Interiors. Celerie Kemble, the founder of Kemble Interiors, is well known for her signature style of whimsy and color. And we will say her style also embraces maximal-ism since she is very detail-oriented in a classical way. But when she took the project with her design partner, they really listened and incorporated client’s minimalism aesthetic in the design and created this whimsical modern chic East Coast home. Let’s take look at this home together:
Airy Color Palette: white-on-white wall paints with modernized classical chinoisorie and striped wallpaper treatments on the accent walls.
