Chinese and Japanese Fabrics: Modern Oriental
(Updated 3rd August 2018)
A modern take on the oriental look, this trend has appeared across interiors this Spring and Summer season. Oriental styling has been around since the late 17th Century when we first started trading with China, it was popular as an interior style in the 1920s and is emerging again.
As we are looking to brighten our homes, add colour and cosiness, the modern oriental style is uplifting with pretty, intricate details, natural elements and helps to create harmony and balance in our homes.
This new take moves away from the heavy reds, black, and golds from earlier iterations and towards brighter, bolder colours with shades of pink and greens, blue patterned fabrics and turquoises. It is an accessible style for timeless and modern homes alike and can be used as accents against plain backgrounds or multi layered for an eclectic look.
