Chinoiserie

Chinoiserie is a European interpretation of traditional Asian motifs and culture. Blue Willow is the most common Chinoiserie.

chi·noi·se·rie /ˌSHēnˌwäzəˈrē,ˌSHēnˈwäz(ə)rē/

noun     the imitation or evocation of Chinese motifs and techniques in Western art, furniture, and architecture, especially in the 18th century.

The Chinois Erie Collection from Vern Yip by SKL Home offers “a modern approach to this ornate style of design. The Chinoiserie shower curtain is a true reflection of this with its rich blue hue and elaborate, printed white motif.”
