Chinoiserie Chic on De Gournay

Western culture has always been obsessed with the Far East, but I've had a leave-it-or-take-it attitude about most Eastern influences. However, when it comes to Chinoiserie, or the mixing of European and Chinese influences, I swoon. I've found a whole blog devoted to Chinoiserie accents, Chinoiserie Chic, that manages to post several things a day - showing just how popular the style is.

De Gournay is The Name in hand painted Chinoiserie wallpaper. It is extremely, extremely expensive, but a girl can dream, right? Reproductions are out there, but as is true in all aspects of life, the real deal is always sweeter. De Gournay works with you to make a custom wallpaper based on historical texts from their files. Just one more thing to add to my imaginary mansion.
