Not a month goes by in which one of the design magazines does not feature a home that has beautiful de Gournay or Gracie Chinoiserie wallpaper. Some homeowners are fortunate enough to be able to cover every wall in their room with it, while others settle for a framed panel or two. If this handpainted wallpaper is a little out of your design budget, then you may want to visit Stencil Library's website. This UK site sells all kinds of stencils, from neoclassical to geometric designs. Some of the stencils are perfect for borders, while others are a little larger and can be used to decorate an entire wall.
Recently, they added some fantastic Chinoiserie panel stencils that can be used to create your very own de Gournay-esque walls. There are 4 different panels that can be used together to create a seamless scene, or you can just purchase one panel and repeat that design over and over. The site also includes photos of the painted designs using metallic paints on different colored backgrounds. If this is a little too ambitious for you, there are also smaller Chinoiserie designs that you could use on a door, a piece of furniture, or anywhere else that could use a touch of Chinoiserie.
