Bucket List Wallpaper à la de Gournay

Most of us have things that we dream about acquiring someday...when money is no object. If you're like me, home/decor items dominate that list. I suppose you could call it a bucket list...a decorating bucket list. Well, hand-painted wallcovering by de Gournay is a good candidate for that list. As exquisite as it is expensive, de Gournay's beautiful wallpaper adorns some of the finest homes in the world.

De Gournay is famous for its iconic Chinoiserie motifs its expansive Papiers Peints Panoramiques. All are historical, timeless, elegant works of art. Since each panel is painted by hand, the possibilities for pattern and color are truly endless. It's normally used in traditional spaces but I like it best when it's juxtaposed against more modern surroundings. Wherever it might be, a room swathed in de Gournay paper is seriously special...

Is de Gournay wallcovering on your decorating bucket list? If so, what color and pattern would you pick? If not, what is on your list? I probably would install de Gournay paper in one room if I had loads of money, however, there are a few things (mainly artwork and antiques) that would come before it on my bucket list. Luckily, I don't need to worry about prioritizing anything on that list at the moment!

Have a great weekend!
