Chinoiserie Wallpaper for My Dining Room


A follower of Chinoiserie Chic left a comment last week that I should rush over to Etsy and type in Clarence House. I did immediately and discovered that a seller had 15 rolls of this incredible Clarence House Chinoiserie Baroque wallpaper that she was selling for $150. This very high-end paper has been a longtime favorite of mine. I then realized that the seller is a favorite of mine and a follower of Chinoiserie Chic. What a small world. I purchased the wallpaper and it arrived yesterday. It is so gorgeous! I have always wanted my dining room papered in a Chinoiserie wallpaper and I am about to have it. The next order of business is finding a really expert paperhanger as the wallpaper is untrimmed, unpasted, and very heavy. Visit Mary Kaiser's Etsy store and online store for some truly beautiful things. Thank you so much to Jan for the head's up-I owe you! This may well be my best Chinoiserie find ever thanks to a follower of my blog-just one of the many unexpected joys of blogging!


Here is the paper in a blue colorway.

You are so very very welcome! I simply had one of my moments when I "knew" that the wallpaper HAD to be yours ....LOL! Those moments often come when I checking out Ebay, Etsy or our local Craigs List! Can't wait to see the final results -- of course you WILL post lots of Before and After photos, please! Many wishes for a joyful and entertaining dining room! And many thanks to YOU for such a gorgeous blog -- and adding beauty everyday when I visit!

OMG you are a very smart shopper, this is going to be stunning in your dining room. I am on the hunt for a mural type paper that is not the cost of Gracie or DeGournay, do you have any good resources? Kathysue

I always think your blog is very generous - it's good that some of that has come back to you. It's wonderful wallpaper too.

And thank you for the heads up on Mary Kaiser's store. I found her delicious carpet bags, and as someone who has always had them it's wonderful to find a new source.

To Kathysue
Try Griffin and Wong.
Maison 21 did a whole entry on them some time ago and gives them a very good rap.

Style Redux 2 said...

Kathysue-Griffin And Wong is quite lovely and better priced.

Style Redux 2 said...

Rouge-Thank you so much.

Style Redux 2 said...

Rouge-A great source.
