Chinoiserie (pronounced as \shēn-ˈwäz-rē\) or the fanciful, whimsical, and flamboyant European interpretation of the Chinese styles, can actually work well as a wedding theme if you’re looking for a rather uncommon, not-your-usual-rustic-shabby-chic-type of wedding. Influenced by the artistic influences and designs from China, Japan and other Asian countries, a Chinoiserie Chic wedding is rich with Zen elements and Oriental style such as porcelain designs and Asian exotic prints.
I have prepared two mood boards for you today, both featuring the Chinoiserie Chic inpirations, but with different color palettes. I must say that my personal favorite will be the Jade + Peony Pink Chinoiserie Chic mood board. Well to start with, it has pink. ‘Nuf said. Tee-hee! 🙂 How about you, would you go for the more pastel shade-rich set of Jade + Peony Pink or the bold, authentic “Chinese-esque” colors of Blue + White?
P.S. Just click the link of the photo sources if you want to have a clearer, closer look on your fave photos in the mood boards, okay?
