I’m just madly in love with the cover of the Domino decorating book, which happens to be de Gournay’s Portobello wallpaper. To me, there is nothing more fantastic that a dining room done in beautiful chinoiserie paper paired with more modern furniture- the play of the elegant and worldly with the modern and clean lined is just fantastic. However, affording to use one of these hand painted papers on four whole walls is another ball game entirely!!! Instead of forgoing rent/mortgage payments/cars/kid’s college funds you can get a similar effect from framing cuts of these papers. I found a wonderful selection from Decorator’s Secret on Vintage and Modern. Not only do they have full length panels available, they also offer harder to find smaller cuts of the papers, which would cost less to frame and are easier to find space for.
The long cuts – between $75-$1,000 (the blue one makes me weak in the knees…)
The smaller cuts, 30″h x 22″ w for $425!

If you CAN afford to put some hand painted silk wallcovering in your home, another vendor to check out is Paul Montgumery Studios. I love his bright color choices and also his more subdued ones as well!
