Beauty of Timeless Chinoiserie

We were on Timothy Corrigan and Fromental Design IG Live this morning for their talking about Tomothy’s new collection —Les Folies.

“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 how this classical chinoiserie wallpaper nicely contrasts with modern furnishings in the house.

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.

3 Ways to Create a High-style Home You Dream About

 

The more time you spend at home, the more you are likely to notice some detail you don’t like and you want to do something about it. In case after 6-weeks of quarantine, you kind of develop a big plan to elevate your home and feel a little bit overwhelmed, don’t worry, we have 3 simple rules you may want to consider and we will use one of the projects we did as a case study:

 

  1. Choose a color palette you love and repeat it through the whole house in an unexpected yet classy way. We repeat the color palette of pink and green through the whole house in this project in the above video.

2. Own one or two pieces you really treasure and  showcase or design around them. The custom-made Murano table lamp with a pink shade, the artwork and green velvet bar chairs in the above video are  what my client really falls in love with and they are the focal points in her home.

3. Mix and match pieces from different styles and periods to keep the overall design interesting and timeless.  In the video above, Louis XVI bar chairs are  classical while the green midcentury chairs in the family room is mid-century,  which creates such a  nice contrast with all of the traditional components in the house.

 

Hope these decor tips are helpful.

Throw Back Thursday

Here is one of the photos we took for the project  we did several years ago.  It is a whole-house interior design project. It is a traditional home, yet we incorporated  a lot of modern elements like neutral color palettes, clean-line furniture and furnishings and of course modern art. The renown Dutch designer Marcel Wanders said: “Designers and people in general are too attracted by ‘new’, but nothing ages more quickly than ‘newness’. All my objects reflect [a] marriage between past and present.”  We couldn’t agree him more.

Banquette comfort

A build-in banquette is a fantastic way to add more seats, storage  and style to a breakfast nook. The setting often creates very chic, relaxing and inviting vibes.

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:

  1. Airy Color Palette: white-on-white wall paints with modernized classical chinoisorie and striped wallpaper treatments on the accent walls.

Park-Avenue-Traditional-Apartment-Living-Room
The wall paints, the furniture, the lamp shades and flooring are in a harmonious elegant light color palette of white,  cream, blush  and light brown while the brass on the lighting fixtures and coffee tables  add touch of glamor.  Greenery and fresh flower arrangements make this living space alive.  The colors in furnishings of this living room actually were pulled out from a modernized chinoiserie wallpaper on a accent wall.  What we want to mention here is the modern classical chandelier hanging over the living room ceiling, if this is a west coast home, this light fixture might go super minimalism style.  This is where we see the decor difference between East Coast and West Coast.

2. Bring the past and present together : One of the way to bring the past and present together is to modernize classical furniture and let them stand out in a light muted  backdrop.

The black wall mirror, console are streamlined classical pieces with details. Same are two acrylic Louis XVI chairs flunking the console.  A modern gold-leaf chandelier in this foyer truly makes a statement.

J. Lo’s Chic and Glamorous Home II

Today, we continue to take a look at J. Lo’s Hidden Hills’ mansion interiors. If you haven’t got a chance to read part I, you can click here for details.

Breakfast Nook-–we are truly in love with the color palette in kitchen breakfast area–soft blue on the cabinetry, a romantic touch of fresh pink roses on the trimmed ebony pedestal dining table, all-white elegant dinnerwares and tea wares, antique gold empire chandeliers.  We love the intricate pattern on the china cabinets. When you use a lot of soft and muted color in your space, patterns will bring the layer of interest and they make the space look very sophiticated.
