de Gournay: Bespoke Perfection

Tuesday I had the opportunity to check out the family home my brother and sister-in-law recently purchased in the suburbs. I tagged along for most of the house hunting process as a toddler wrangler but funnily enough the house they chose wasn't one I'd previously seen. It's a gorgeous hundred year old house that has been well cared for. Unfortunately, like most older homes, there are some questionable wallpaper choices in a few rooms, such as the dining room. 

While it will probably just receive a new coat of paint in the interim, my sister-in-law has plans to add hand painted wallpaper in the 18th century scenic style. We'd seen a similar motif used in another home and were both in love with the mood it created, reminding us of the old grand Southern Plantations. For the hell of it I googled modern vendors and came across de Gournay. My goodness, the loveliness. I completely understand now why one would pay tooth and nail for custom wallpaper.
