If you’re new to my Ultimate Wish List series, it’s where I catalog all those big ticket items that I’ve loved forever that I know I want one day. Earlier Ultimate Wish List items can be found here and here.

I’ve blogged about deGournay wallpaper before and how I didn’t know how I would ever choose a pattern from all the choices. Then last week, I opened up the new Elle Decor and there it was:

right in the table of contents, before I even got to the features. After I stopped hyperventilating, I went straight to the article and I was so happy to see another shot of the space:

It’s a very traditional, very deGournay pattern but the two-tone feels fresh to me. I also love that the two tones happen to be blue and gold.

Ignoring the walllpaper for just a moment, how much do you love that gold light fixture, those chairs and the massive mirror? I’m dying over here. It’s just all too good.

Luckily the only reason I am saved from ordering this fabulously,gorgeous paper is we have no proper wall surfaces for it otherwise my diningroom would be there in an instant!


I too have no spot to put this fabulous paper. I adore DeGourney, Fabulous!!

I am obsessed with DeGournay wallpaper. It’s totally out of my budget, so I’m waiting to land a client who will go for it! I’m also having a love affair with those brass chiavari chairs!

Absolutely stunniing!! When I was looking at Anthro’s new wallpapers, I was very drawn to the organic/nature, yet modern feeling ones…this one surpases all!

Hope you’re able to have it grace your home one day…soon!

De Gournay will always be at the top on my wish list – the “I WISH it wasn’t so expensive list.” Sigh. Maybe one day . . . that’s why they call them wishes, right?

That’s an utterly beautiful DeGournay pattern. I’d paper ny whole house in their creations if I could, and that’s despite being a bit anti-wallpaper in general. I haven’t been round Blogtopia in a while due to pesky hard work, so I’m glad to be back here and catching up. Nice to see you getting into your Christmas swing!


Thanks so much for taking time to comment! I read every one and reply through my own comments.
