3 Ways to Celebrate Chinese New Year with Chinoiserie

Chinoiserie is always popular – it’s a timeless way to add an exotic aura to any space, and it can be mixed with an unlimited range of decorating styles. However, over the past year, it’s been stronger than ever. Case in point: Chinoiserie elements were featured in half of the spaces from last fall’s One Room Challenge. (Click here to browse the gorgeous designs!)

To celebrate Chinese New Year this week, we’re diving into the eternally elegant patterns, prints and elements of chinoiserie. And we’ve got tips to help you get the look!

Draw Inspiration from Your China

When Casey Timm of Studio C Interiors designed this dining room, she was inspired by the Wedgwood china set her clients already owned, choosing a mix of floral and geometric fabrics for the drapery and upholstery. The oversized bamboo birdcage-inspired light fixture brings in a hint of Far East glam.

“The varying scales in the patterns on the drapes, urns and chairs keeps the room looking modern with a bit of edge,” Casey told us.

3 Beautiful Decorating Trends to Try in 2016

This year’s hottest home trends are related to two of our favorite things: sun and shimmer. And in the middle of winter, what could be more inspiring than the allure of a tropical isle, a glowing golden sheen, or a sun-drenched space?

Return of the Sunroom

Sunrooms aren’t exactly a new concept; nonetheless, this year, many new homeowners and renovators will find a way to add a dedicated space chock full of windows and natural light. In an era of nonstop tech connectivity and high stress, we need the extra vitamin D more than ever! With a gorgeous view, abundant sunshine, and protection from the elements, sunrooms are an ideal way to get the best of both worlds.

To prevent fading from UV exposure, we recommend utilizing indoor/outdoor fabrics.

A sunroom is an excellent place to have some fun with your furnishings – perhaps a pair of swinging sofas, like the ones designer Thom Filicia used below?

This room, in an Adirondacks lake house, takes on a treehouse vibe, and the natural textured elements enhance the look.

Traditional Decor with a Vibrant Twist

Traditional decor is incredibly popular for a reason: it’s timeless and classic, it works with a variety of architectural styles, and it’s appealing to all ages. This year, we’re trying out some new ways to use the traditional style, and one of our favorite methods is to implement a vibrant color palette.

Mix bright shades and warm tones

Cassie of Hi Sugarplum participated in the One Room Challenge last fall, and we were thrilled when she used Trend trim on her sunshine-hued drapery. In this wildly colorful living room, Cassie worked with designer Kristin Jackson to create a glam, jewel-toned look while incorporating an antique secretary desk (a family heirloom), a traditional roll-arm sofa and Louis XVI-style chairs.

A glossy lacquered finish modernizes the built-ins, and the brass finish on the coffee table and pendant light fixture completes the warm, welcoming vibe. Even if you’re not feeling as adventurous as Cassie in your home, you can create a similar aesthetic with super-saturated colors and gold tones.
