Oriental Express: East Meets West


East meets West, gets a kid and the result is glorious. Back in design school I've always been fascinated with Chinoiserie. I loved how it complimented the French Rococo so beautifully and how it gives a touch of exotic-ness to classic decor. Good ol' Google best defines Chinoiserie as "The imitation or evocation of Chinese motifs and techniques in Western art, furniture, and architecture". In contemporary times I feel like Kelly Wearstler is one of those designers who gets to pull this East meets West (and takes it to outer freakin' space in a good way) look. And so in commemoration with the Chinese (or Lunar) New Year, here are some Chinese Oriental-inspired things that I found lovely.
