A Dream Chinoiserie Bathroom

Laney LA

This is absolutely my dream bathroom featuring de Gournay Amazonia wallpaper. Amazonia is a contemporary interpretation of an 18th Century chinoiserie design. The motif updates more traditional compositions of birds and flowers for a vivid tropical verdant rain forest variation, created in collaboration with Edgardo Osorio, founder and creative director of luxury footwear brand Aquazzura.

The resulting ‘Jungle’ depicts a dazzling array of exotic flora and fauna amidst lush palms and banana leaf plants. Toucans, lovebirds, parrots and macaws fill a landscape of decorative flair alongside jewel toned serpents, ornate butterflies and swinging monkeys.

I love the blue herringbone encaustic (cement) clé tile floor, freestanding tub, and a black steel window and door leading to the private courtyard garden. This also graces the cover of the May/June 2022 issue of Modern Luxury Interiors California.

This is not a huge bathroom - the house is just 1,400 square feet, but so beautifully done.

  1. How wonderful! Merci

  2. Love it but I don't think I would let any one use that tub. Wouldn't want a drop of water to splash on that beautiful wallpaper.

    1. I would be very careful. Actually - I love the look of a tub, but take a shower 100% of the time.

  3. Insanely beautiful. I want to copy it in my California beach condo. And I need a subscription to that magazine.

  4. I’m a virgin to posting comments. I literally squealed out loud seeing your post. What a beautiful wallpaper! Beth, I follow you religiously. I appreciate your blog.
