Hannah Cecil Gurney's London Apartment

If you follow me on Instagram, you may have noticed my obsession with hand painted wallpapers. De Gournay, Gracie, Zuber... I love them all! So naturally, when I spied the London apartment of Hannah Cecil Gurney, director of de Gournay and daughter of the company's founder, I became a little giddy. Hand painted wallpaper for days!! Photography by Natalie Dinham as featured in Elle Decoration Spain...

Wallpaper and Chinese Chippendale mirror by de Gournay, lamp by Porta Romana, and bedding by Fermoie.

Abundant natural light, de Gournay wallpaper, and custom made marble geometric floor.

This de Gournay wallpaper was inspired by one Yves Saint Laurent had in his Paris apartment. 

Console, trunk, and red lamps by Collier Webb.

Passage to India, a panoramic de Gournay paper runs along the corridor, depicting early views of India. Antique armchair from Birgit Israel and mirror from Jamb London. 

A glass cube encloses the shower with Fishes wallpaper from de Gournay.

Absolutely stunning! To see more of Hannah Cecil Gurney's exquisite London apartment, please visit Elle Decoration Spain, and click here to learn more about de Gournay.


  1. Tearing down those beautiful papers every six months sorta makes me want to cry. I never understood that sort of decorating. Once something is right, it's right, and only needs occasional tweaking.

  2. We sell the DeGournay to our more discerning clients.


Thank you for your lovely comments. They absolutely make my day!
