I received a great response to my new series on Chinoiserie Gone Wrong. Lots of comments, lots of emails, and some great ideas for upcoming posts. Thank you!
I am a huge fan of de Gournay wallpaper. My first post when I created Chinoiserie Chic more than 11 years ago below is of de Gournay wallcovering - a room by Ruthie Sommers. I still love this.

I had never seen a de Gournay wallcovering I have not liked. Until now. Yikes. Check out the green blobs.
Can you guess what this is supposed to be?
4. Alien pods?
5. Green rainbows?
7. Exotic eggs?
8. Some strange fruit?
And the correct answer is Kiso Mountains. Wow. And the scale of those flowering trees? Some are as tall as the mountains. I cannot imagine decorating a room with this or living with it. I don't find anything aesthetically pleasing about this at all. Perhaps in a commercial space like a restaurant. Otherwise a hard pass.
Love it? Hate it? Thoughts?
