21 Chinoiserie Bedroom Ideas

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.

Tour a San Francisco Home with Art and Historical Details

We came across this San Francisco home on internet and fell in love with its classical bone, the art and historical details. Here are some of our favorite spaces. Let’s take a look together.

Entry

The house is a 1926 Presidio Heights home in San Francisco for a young family. The spiral staircase metalwork is original . The newly installed black-and-white checkered marble flooring is such a good match to the classical bone of the house. A vintage Curtis Jeré brass pendant, and a deconstructed Venus statue by European art collective, Troika by the entry all indicate the distinguished taste of the owner. This entry establishes the tone for the rest of the houses– artsy, classical, grandeur yet modern and clean-lined.

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.

When we read an email about  a beautifully designed beach house in SoCal this morning, we  feel impressed and delighted. It’s a Spanish  colonial revival and redesigned by famed interior designer Barclay Butera. The design work is published at Traditional Home Spring Issue 2020.

Barclay used his signature blue and white color schemes at the foyer and  private spaces of the home. Also, he repeated  symmetry and balance through the whole house to create formality. Interesting enough, this is actually a second home near the water.  But unlike conventional breezy and lay-back So-Cal beach houses, this house is the love for classical design.

We love the dark geometric-patterned wood floor at the foyer. A group of blue-and-white chinoisorie ginger jars and vases  on a traditional center table set the tone for the whole house.
