#Instadecor: Chic Chinoiserie Interiors (Met Gala Inspired)

“China: Through the Looking Glass,” opening today at the Met, has us dreaming not only of gala gowns but of blue-and-white china, hand-painted de Gournay wallpaper, and the Coromandel screens Coco Chanel so loved. These are but some of the most popular elements of chinoiserie, which, as its Frenchified name indicates, is a fanciful European interpretation of Eastern allure. Anything but a fad, the style, which emerged in the eighteenth-century, is one with enduring appeal that works as well in intimate settings as on the grand scale.

Here, a collection of chic chinoiserie interiors culled from Instagram after the JUMP!
