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.

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.

Expressionist Art: Time to Feel Your Feelings

Self-expression may be pretty popular right now, but it’s far from a new idea. In fact, the “Express Yourself” movement, among artists at least, started early on in the 20th century, if not before. The artists of the Expressionist era were all about feeling your feelings, even the uncomfortable ones. Expressionist art isn’t afraid to distort reality or use a ton of paint for the sake of emotion.

If we’re being totally fair, you can find emotionally expressive art in every single artistic era (after all, it’s what artists do best!) But the official expressionists were a special group. We’ll highlight a few in this post.
