de Gournay Philosophy

I have gathered many photos of rooms featuring beautiful, hand-painted wall coverings by de Gournay.  de Gournay offers both standard and custom colors and designs. The backgrounds featured below include brown, greens, yellows, pink, blues and even grey. These works of art are at home in any type of space. Take a look . . .

"An exuberant variation on a classic de Gournay wallpaper was made for the foyer: presto, a glorious garden of flowers and birds! The neoclassical console and faux-malachite column lamps are from John Rosselli. [Miles] Redd stained the floor's chevron pattern in contrasting tones to play up its geometry."

"There's a beautiful handmade floor in the powder room that we designed in New Ravenna, which The Fine Line made for us. It's stainless steel and marble tatami sticks - small slats of stone that have been cut up and put into a mosaic pattern. Then we have great de Gournay custom silk-screened walls. We really tried to focus in on handmade details throughout the space."
