Have you heard the word chinoiserie before? If not, don’t worry. We are going to introduce you to this decorative style and supply inspiration on how you can bring it into your home.
The style dates to the 18th century, where creators developed chinoiserie art and creations using Chinese visual ideas for inspiration. It has a place in modern homes too. One of the best ways to introduce it is to opt for chinoiserie wallpaper, often using the famous and much-loved cherry blossoms to introduce a touch of nature.
Here we explore various wallpapers and chinoiserie wall murals you may be inspired by in your own home.

How could we complete our article of recommendations for cherry blossom wall murals and papers without covering one last take on the Takeda design? Here we have the duck egg version, naturally transitioning from the last design we looked at above. In this case, the cherry blossom takes on the Takeda style of moving across your wall rather than up it.
Could the duck egg background be the best option of all? It certainly works well with the lighter cherry blossoms you see here. Lightening and brightening up a hallway would be ideal, although this one works equally well in a bedroom or any other space you can think of.
Cherry blossoms in the garden are stunning, but if you cannot make that happen, the next best thing is to introduce a chinoiserie wallpaper into your home. You can see there are designs here to suit every room, too.
Create the space you desire with an Oriental touch, letting blossoms of all shades into your bedroom, lounge, or other space. Where will you let them take you today? We have papers and murals for all rooms, all preferences, all styles, and all other choices and preferences. The chinoiserie look may have peaked in the 18th century, but as you can see, it is making a comeback in the 21st century.
And we think it is about time that happened. Welcome back, chinoiserie designs.
