Vern Yip Shangri La Bath Collection

Vern Yip’s new Shangri La Oriental Bath Collection is primarily black and white, so you can use it with any colors or neutrals. The shower curtain has a large scene, like a detailed transferware landscape of a romanticized oriental scene.

The Shangri La Collection – Beauty of the Orient

Shangri La, a fantasy of the Western world, is known as a mystical, harmonious valley in the Kunlun Mountains of China.

The detailed scene is black on white with color details. The style is like European
transfer-prints depicting romantic chinoiseries and orientalist scenes.

Orientalism popularized scenic prints with combinations of elements drawn from what looks like China or Japan with geishas, Ottoman Turkey or the Levant, with mosques and minarets, and people dressed in Turkish clothes at leisure smoking elongated pipes and playing exotic looking instruments, tigers and elephants in landscapes inspired by places in Thailand or Siam.

The little elephant and the pump dispenser could be from India. The pump reminds me of the Taj Mahal.

The accessories, made of glazed white ceramic, are sculpted in the likeness of an elephant and temple. Their simplistic finish lends a modern feel that nicely blends old and new.
