The House of L was recently featured in an article on Houzz titled “Chinoiserie Style, Decoded“! Chinoiserie (pronounced shin-waz’-ree or shin-waz’-eh-ree) is when Chinese styles, designs, themes, etc. are used in architecture, furniture or decorating. Chinois is the French word for “Chinese”, so now you know! The style became popular in the 1800’s and is still used to great effect today as you will see this article on Houzz.
