sunday and gracie wallpaper




One way to make a room truly special is to cover the walls with Gracie’s hand-painted wallpaper. Gracie is a family-run business that Charles R. Gracie founded in New York City in 1898. Gracie originally created custom lamps, but started selling Asian antiques in the 1920s and 1930s. The company began offering hand-painted wallpapers after one of Charles Gracie's friends, who was a textile trader, brought some back from Beijing. The company is best known for these beautiful wallpapers, which are still hand painted in China by a studio that has been managed by the same Chinese family for the past fifty years. For homeowners who don't want to paper an entire wall, a framed panel or two of the hand-painted wallpaper can add a touch of Gracie to any room.



Here is one of my favorite spaces in Aerin Lauder's home - the Boudior. The walls are accented in a decadent mint  green and floral wallpaper, by none other than the Gracie Studio.

In interior designer Victoria Hagan's Connecticut home, a Gracie wallpaper 
transforms the powder room into a garden.



Bright orange velvet dining chairs, in different sizes makes the classic 
Gracie Home wall paper feel hip and modern.





The hallmark of these wallpapers are they hand painting, no printing or silk technique. Much care has a price: the average of the panels is $ 1,000 USD (most cost $ 1,350). Very subtle - The metallized versions are a hit of the brand. Besides the wallpapers, there are antiques and furniture made by atelier Gracie, who has a team of 20 people who paint murals, furniture and make restorations in museums. It is a family business: the current President is part of the fifth generation of Gracie's.

  2. I'm a big fan of wallpapers - they take an ordinary room to another level. I like the vintage sort-of look to these once. Nice!!

Your Time (Happy Friday).

Hello my Lovelies. I trust you all a great week and looking forward to the weekend. I know I am, as I have lovely dinner plans with a trip to the beach as well as , to catch some much needed sunshine. Don't get me wrong there is great weather all around me here in the tropics, but when you are working in a cold air conditioning office, you don't see much of the sun or warm weather.

I adore simple weekend dresses like the one I've posted, that's breezy and light or shorts with filp flops and a huge beach bag where I just throw my stuff in. The weekend is also not complete without a broad rim hat, the broader the better.

Well Cheers to the wekend and be safe my Lovelies, till we meet again.


Love Lisa
