Mural Walls

There’s something so beautifully theatrical about wall murals – one of the oldest forms of decorative wall treatments. I’ve been dragging my feet on settling on a repetitive wallpaper for our powder room but was recently inspired by de Gournay‘s exquisite hand painted reproductions of 18th century Chinoiserie landscapes. I love it so much, I’m going for it . . .
