Charming Chinoiserie

No design style represents spring blossoms like cherry and quince more than chinoiserie.  Embraced by top designers like Charlotte Moss and Michael Smith, chinoiserie (a French term meaning “Chinese-esque” or “that which reflects Chinese artistic influence”) has that special star quality that captures the imagination and transforms any style of room – much like our flowers!

One of our favorite accents is the hand-painted wallpaper and silks from the British firm de Gournay, known for their chinoiserie designs as well their hand-painted fabrics for Balmain.

Maria Christofilis, founder and creative director of the Anthousa collection, loved her custom-made peony and cherry blossom silk panels by de Gournay that they inspired her new  home fragrance, De Gournay Jardinieres and Citrus Trees, and the beautiful fabric swatch became the packaging.
