Chinoiserie Trends 2017 - Yellow

Elle Decor - yellow Chinese Chippendale chairs

Today I am launching my picks for what will be hot in Chinoiserie in 2017. My first trend is yellow. Yellow is a classic color in Chinese culture conveying divinity, happiness, and success. It is a happy and optimistic color. A pop or two of yellow Chinoiserie is a great way to perk up any room. Here are some great ideas - above  - Chinese Chippendale chairs lacquered in yellow.

Nick Olsen - a yellow Chinese gourd lamp

Sullen Gregory - yellow Chinoiserie wallpaper

New England Home - ottoman coffee table with yellow Chinoiserie fabric

Ruthie Sommers - doors upholstered in yellow Manuel Canovas Pagoda

Alessandra Branca

This is my favorite yellow Chinoiserie room - with yellow Fromental wallpaper, yellow silk curtains, as well as yellow pillows and chair.


  1. They are all splendid. One cannot go wrong with yellow.

  2. So beautiful....and that Manuel Canovas fabric is to die for!!! Adore the ottoman!!!
