Chinoiserie Wall Decor: Bringing Chinoiserie into Your Home

Chinoiserie is a classic decor style, based on European interpretations of traditional Chinese art and design. It first became popular during the early 18th century, when trade between the two continents began to flourish. Wealthy Europeans would import Eastern tapestry, art, and ceramics, using them to cultivate a unique, multi-cultural aesthetic in their homes. Today the style is popular across the globe. Chinoiserie can transform any room into a calming, serene space.

Characterized by floral and nature pattern motifs, with a bold earth tone palette, this style embraces the ornate. Decorating rooms with various adornments and accessories, with assorted patterns and tones, will create the layered detail that Chinoiserie calls for.

What is Grandmillennial Design and How to Incorporate it into Your Home

Grandmillennial design has seen a recent surge but is by no means a new trend. Sometimes called granny chic, this style of decorating your home mixes antique and vintage pieces with modern accents.

There are a variety of ways to tap into this nostalgic and fresh design. Selecting vintage furniture, combining neutral and pastel color schemes, incorporating fabrics with bold patterns that mirror the color scheme of the room are just a few suggestions for those looking to style their home granny chic.

Geometric Art – Inspire a Modern Touch with Geometric Wall Art

What you hang on your walls says a lot about you. The art style you choose reflects your taste, your thoughts, and even your favorite historical periods. Impressionist paintings reveal as much as framed playbills. This is why many decorators choose a stylishly neutral approach with modern design. Since the Mod movement of the 1960s with sleek minimalism as well as clean white designs, modern art has focused on a striking and abstract style. Here’s how you can inspire a modern touch using geometric art.

Wanderlust Art – Exploring the Globe with Inspiring Framed Art

Defined as a strong desire to travel and explore the world, wanderlust is a sensation that is more than just a passing curiosity. But rather, it’s more like a motivating force that drives and inspires one to seek adventure and discover new places. It comes from the German words wandern (‘to hike’) and lust (‘desire’). And literally means the love of hiking. But generally describes an intense feeling or inner longing to journey to places unknown and new.

The feeling of wanderlust has perhaps never been so commonly felt as it is in today’s world. While travel bans have been enforced and staying at home as well as practicing social distancing has become the norm. Luckily, however, it’s still possible to keep your dreams of travel and adventure alive with inspiring framed art that captures the spirit of wanderlust! Read on to explore some creative and unique ways to express wanderlust through art in your home or space.
