Many wonderful new books are being released this fall, and I am delighted to share some of my favorites. As you know, I am a huge fan of hand-painted Chinoiserie wall coverings, and we just installed Gracie wallpaper in our dining room. But I love de Gournay too and de Gournay: Hand-Painted Interiors, released this week, is a delectable feast for the eyes!
Celebrated for hand-painted Chinoiserie wallpapers, sumptuous patterns of colorful flora, and varied birdlife, de Gournay also produces collections that explore historical themes, such as nineteenth-century French pastoral scenes and exotic Brazilian landscapes bursting with wildlife. Abstract designs that fit well with modern interiors are also created by de Gournay.
de Gournay: Hand-Painted Interiors showcases de Gournay designs in beautiful interiors created by top designers in homes from San Francisco and New York to London, Paris, and beyond. The book explores de Gournay in both city and country settings, how to take inspiration from English stately homes, and how custom wallpaper designs are created.
They say you can’t judge a book by its cover, but that certainly does not hold true in this case. Available for purchase via Amazon, I highly recommend adding de Gournay: Hand-Painted Interiors to your library.
