The weather is finally getting nicer and I was inspired this morning by an Instagram photo of a De Gournay wallpaper posted by a friend and fellow interior designer, Georgia Tapert Howe of Carolina George.  Inspired by 18th Century Chinoiserie; nothing reminds me of springtime and brings the beauty of nature into a home quite like an exquisitely hand painted De Gournay wallpaper.  The company specializes in creating block-printed panoramic wallpapers developed in early 19th century France and called: Papiers Peints Panoramiques.   Every paper is handmade by skilled artisans and each one is a true work of art.  The epitome of luxury, beauty and fantasy the paper can be customized any way the client desires and made into matching pattern fabric.  Personally, De Gournay paper in a dining room is a look I will never tire of!!  Thanks to Georgia for the inspiration… I am jealous that you get to work with one and am certain it will be stunning! For everyone else, enjoy the way designers have used these gorgeous papers in the pictures below!   xx K

“Dresses for breakfasts, and dinners, and balls;
Dresses to sit in, and stand in, and walk in;
Dresses to dance in, and flirt in, and talk in;
Dresses in which to do nothing at all;
Dresses for Winter, Spring, Summer, and Fall.”
~William Allen Butler, “Nothing to Wear”

One of the pitfalls of living New York City is there never seems to be enough closet space.  Especially, if you have a love affair with fashion that rivals my own!  With every new season, the task of changing out my wardrobe leaves me pining for a closet where everything I own is accessible and enticing.  Until my wardrobe wishes come true,  I sadly must live with the extreme case of closet envy I get when I see photographs of designer dressing rooms like the ones pictured below… Enjoy!
