Porcelain Prints


Porcelain prints are a classic, and for someone like me who adores Chinese porcelain, they are a natural. I think this Ming wallpaper by Pierre Frey is incredibly elegant. Can't you see one of these used in an all white kitchen, a breakfast room, or a dining room? Don't be intimidated from using bolder wallpaper prints such as these. A room papered in this would not only be stunning, it obviates the need for art on the walls and a lot of accessories. Think about a white or black Saarinen Tulip table, Philippe Starck Louis Ghost chairs, white Chinese porcelains. This would keep the look modern, fresh, and sophisticated.  This wallpaper would also be amazing in a traditional setting-especially the blue version, in an all blue and white kitchen, breakfast room, or dining room. Gorgeous!

A fanciful fabric with lots of visual impact. I think I like the gray one. Have a great weekend.

I cannot quite make up my mind! I am torn between the blue and the gray - they are fabulous!

Bon weekend

Sande-They are all lovely, but the gray is the most modern and sophisticated. Have a great weekend.

Fabulously French-The gray is a bit more modern, the blue a bit more traditional, but both are stunning. Bon weekend.

What fun wallpaper! I'd love to see it lining a beautiful curio or china cabinet, too. Kind of a trompe l'oeil effect.

Averill-What a fabulous idea. I would also work to buy one roll and frame panels for a breakfast room or dining room.

I'm torn between the blue and gray as well! Great ideas - I can picture the room~

I love this wallpaper but Im with Averill..lining a cabinet would be killer!! I've also been thinking about using only the bowl stacks in some sort of decoupage treatment on a small cabinet of mine....

Well, Pierre Frey and chinese porcelain are some of my favorite buzz words! Can't get any better that this! Love the panel Idea. Must come up with a reason to buy some.
