The Met Gala 2015: A Chinoiserie Lovers Dream

While red carpet fashion tends to take center stage at the Met Gala, the decor of the event deserves no less recognition, and 2015's was nothing short of breathtaking, and a chinoiserie lovers dream! As guests entered the Metropolitan Museum of Art, they were greeted by a towering blue and white chinoiserie vase made up of entirely of roses. Surrounding the mammoth creation, the approximately 700 guests mingled amongst a sprinkling of cherry blossom trees.

Making their way into the event, attendees ascended a grand chinoiserie staircase flanked on either side by two gently arching walls of bamboo.

Upon entrance into the grand hall, an enchanted deGournay forest lined the walls as a field of wisteria hung from the ceiling, adding a touch of intimacy to the otherwise grandiose space. Pink floral dishes were layered atop deGournay's blue linen 'Earlham' tablecloths, all highlighted by robins egg blue place cards. Blue and white porcelain vases lined the tables, holding hot pink and red bouquets; the perfect offset to the otherwise pastel pallet. All of these elements combined to create the perfect scene of romantic elegance and warmth.
