The Latest from de Gournay
While in Los Angeles last week, I visited the Nicky Rising showroom, where Hannah Cecil Gurney, Director of de Gournay, showed me the latest additions to the de Gournay line. Some of the designs are new, while others have been updated in new colors, such as Fishes, shown above, which is now available in a striking red colorway.
Like the rest of the de Gournay line, the new additions are covetable and will likely have you wishing to redecorate your homes. I discovered quite a few designs that I would be thrilled to hang in my home, especially scenic papers like Xie You Yu, Paul et Virginie, and English Landscape Design. But while you look through my photos below, keep in mind that they don't do the papers justice. There are subtleties such as bas relief, embroidery, and tarnished metal finishes that simply can't be captured in photographs. That's all the more reason for you to see the papers for yourself. If you're in Los Angeles, be sure to visit Nicky Rising, which is a jewel-box of a showroom, to see the full collection. Or, if you live in the Southeast, you can consult Angela Patrick at Ainsworth-Noah. These new designs are well-worth a visit.
P.S.- Some of the designs' names have escaped me, but I have included those that I do remember.
