EASTERN FUSION NEED TO KNOW

THE STORY High-street designers being influenced by the traditional art and crafts of Japan and China.

WHY WE LOVE IT The shapes are simple enough to work into any style; the look’s illustrated sketchbook and fretwork patterns are timeless, while the colours are beautifully soft

HOW TO USE IT These pieces are easy to work into an existing scheme. A printed bed linen will work well in both contemporary and shabby-chic bedrooms: look for sets in pale jade, or white and steel blue. Layer in accents of blossom pink and with cushions or faux flower stems, then add an armchair or chest of drawers in charcoal for a contemporary element. To give the look a glamorous edge, mix in antique brass or mirrored finishes.

WHO’S DOING IT House of Fraser has explored this look in its Ceremony range, where t he pale greens and soft peach tones seen in traditional Chinoiserie prints have been reworked into contemporary tableware designs. Also at House of Fraser, the Livingby Christiane Lemieux range uses cranes as a motif for its bold Hiroto bed linen. The wallpaper and window treatments in Next’s Nara range celebrate painterly florals in striking black and heron blue, while the company’s Nihon range includes a traditional-style decorative screen.
