Fromental Friday

I first fell in love with this hand painted wall paper when I worked at The David Sutherland Showroom in Los Angeles in 2006.  Fromental was my all-time favorite wall covering line that the showroom represented and I'm still dreaming of the day when I use it in my own dining room or entry way. 
Tim Butcher, former Creative Director for the world renowned Chinoiserie house, De Gournay, and his wife Lizzy Deshayes started the company in 2005.  I had the pleasure of meeting Tim one night at a party in Hancock Park at the home of interior decorators Hal and Dan.  

Tim was quite the character, I loved his kooky London cockney, and I would describe him as a hot "design" nerd reminiscent of Austin Powers, but that was just my impression.


I love this chinoiserie called Paradiso, especially in the green!  I want canary yellow curtains to match!


That striped carpet on the stairs screams London cool....reminds me of something The Rug Company would make...who knows???


This gray colorway is timeless and perfect!




 This was the print I wanted for my "dream" nursery.


 I could never tire of this one in a dining room with white Louis Chairs with pink fabric!  The pops of green give off the best energy and the brown keeps it subtle and unexpected.




I apologize for being MIA lately...between going back to my day job as a Creative Recruiter, taking care of baby Barron, and trying to have a personal life, my blogging has taken a backseat.  I LOVE blogging, but sometimes we all hit a creative road block.  I hope you understand, dear readers, and I hope you keep coming back!!!  

...and thank God it's Friday!
