“There are as many styles of beauty as there are visions of happiness.”
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

Another great post from what is clearly the most intellectually stimulating design site now in circulation. Kristen always has a unique eye for interesting details, a classy, conservative backbone, and a divine understanding of the great American and European designers.
