I've been noticing recently chinoiserie-inspired patterns and designs in decor.

It reminds me a lot of Brighton Pavilion with all its 19th-century 'orientalisms': 
Brighton Pavilion
{Brighton Pavilion via historical belles and beaus

{visits with my cousins to Brighton Pavillion}

It also reminds me of Villa Valmarana ai Nani in Vincenza with frescoes by Tiepolo:

Mandarin's Promenade
{from seattle art museum, porcelain stories}
I love these chinoiserie-inspired interior decorations:
{from cote de texas}

{love this print by harrison howard}

{Baldwin Bamboo wall covering by Scalamandre}

You should check out this great chinoiserie blog, which has a feast for the eyes, especially this great wall paper:

& remember, the key is not to go overboard--just a few select pieces is all you need.


  1. LOVE that room on decor8! And some of those wallpapers further down could be great for a little girl's room (or a big girl's room!!!)

  2. yes, I love the wallpaper (maybe in moderation--like just one focus wall).
