Chinoiserie wallpaper


Image: Fromental

Phew! One project completed but still lots of others to work on. The research I am doing for another project has let me to chinoiserie wallpaper which I have always loved for the delicate and elegant designs. It is probably the reason I was attracted to the Sanderson wallpaper I framed for the bedroom.


While on the topic of wallpaper, I am waiting on a copy of this book to arrive in the mail. I haven't seen it in person but I'm hoping it is filled with large images and eye-candy designs. Have you read this book or flipped through it?

  2. Wow! That kitchen is gorgeous! I love every element of it - the stairs, the pendant lamp, and of course, that AMAZING wallpaper. It is being bookmarked!

  3. I have the book and it's great: The images are large, and there are histories of the big wallpaper companies and thumbnail images of all the large ones in the end of the book.

  10. Hi Viv, where do you source the frames that you use in your home? I struggle to find really good ones that don't cost the earth. Just discovered your blog, and feeling inspired already! Especially to paint again, I think I will use your idea of seeking inspiration from wallpapers and fabrics to paint a design on canvas.
    Thanks!

  11. I love the Fromental wallpapers, I have featured them on my blog before too. I just looked at your post with the Finches wallpaper in the frames and love it. I am doing something like that in my downstairs loo at the moment but am definitely going to use frames like that in one room. Brilliant.
