Peranakan Style – A Heritage that spans over many countries.
Peranakan is an ethnic group descended from chinese settlers from the southern provinces who came to the Malay Achipelago in the 15th and 17th centuries. So, don’t be surprise to find similar designs or artifacts in Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, Phuket – Thailand, Vietnam, and Mynmar.
There are also another category of peranankan where the portuguese settled down with locals and created their own group. In general the word peranakan really means a mix of different ethnic groups creating a standalone group. So, their culture is a mix from their origins.
So, when putting together a peranankan theme design, be bold and add things that reflects your own origins. Afterall, it is a mix of east and west.
