In this post, I share Five Elements to Create a Chinoiserie Style Christmas.

Aren’t we all thankful that we have so many options for Christmas decorating? The traditional reds and greens of Christmas will always be a crowd favorite. Elegant silver and golds have a secured place in the Christmas decorating space. We all will forever dream of an ethereal White Christmas. And now, we have so many colorful options.

My main tree this year, in the living room picture window, is a little more in the traditional ethereal white Chrismas category. However, I did manage to add a couple of splashes of Chinoiserie. Here is the link to the tree, where you will also find a video tutorial: Elegant Chinoiserie Style Christmas Tree

Ginger Jars – Beautiful Year-Round Chinoiserie Decor

Taking a look around my home, you’d realize fairly quickly that I love decorating with ginger jars. I have a post from this past summer: How to Spray Paint A Ginger Jar in Moments , where I showed you how to lacquer a ginger jar.

Here it is ready for Christmas!

Cheetah Ribbon & Ornaments add a Touch of Chinoiserie Style at Christmas

Is anything hotter right now than cheetah print? It is everywhere. (I’m a little sad, because it is trendy, but I’ve had it in my closet and home for years. It will remain, long after the cheetah fire burns out. You can use it on packages, twirl it down your Christmas tree, or tie it around the decor pieces you display all year.

Vivid Colors – A Great Chinoiserie Trademark

Chinoiserie prints are rich with bright colors of blue, greeen, turquoise, and pink. They can be intricate paintings of Asian emperors, or a outdoor scene with elaborately painted birds and cheery blossom blooms. The table top tree in my entryway embraced those colors.

Again, if you have these items in your everyday decor, just add a little Christmas cheer to them in the way of an ornamant or bow. Francesca loves carrying Christmas cheer.

    Ooooo I’m so happy to see that Chinoiserie is becoming a bit of a trend. We have the most beautiful vintage Chinese vases I inherited from my Gran and I’m always looking for new ways to incorporate them into our decor.
