Framed Chinoiserie Panels

Wednesday, January 18, 2012

In a perfect world (where money was no object) I would have at least one room in my house done up in a gorgeous Chinoiserie wallpaper - a la de Gournay or Gracie.  There is so much I love about these beauties!
I'm still in a ltr with Tory Burch's Gracie wallpapered foyer. 

I love that they're inspired by nature, often featuring branches, blossoms, and birds.

The patterns on these hand-painted papers are loose and free-flowing.  They never feel heavy handed.

And I think what I love best about them is how beautifully they straddle the line between being sophisticated and whimsical.

So, imagine my delight when I came across these 4 Chinoiserie panels at a local estate sale a few weeks ago!  No, they're not my coveted hand-painted wallpaper, but certainly a great way to bring a little sophisticated whimsy to my walls.  And, I can take 'em with me wherever I go!
