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!

love the look to. Birds, blossoms, nature it's so me!
Now following you on pintrest. Have you seen the hand painted rapping papers at world market? They have a couple chinoiserie/cherry blossom styles that are beautiful and I've been trying to figure out how to incorporate them into my decor - framed or back of bookcase.

Isn't chinoiserie great! I love it, but it doesn't fit in my home!

In fact I just blogged about it too!

You know I love chinoiserie (maybe a little too much - how many pagodas can one have?), and would give some appendage to have de Gournay or Gracie in my home one day. But your panels are a great alternative, and like you said you can take them with you. I bought some black and gold chinoiserie panels for my bedroom recently. Can't wait to get them on the wall! I love yours!!
