A bit of information on how we create our hand painted Chinoiserie wallpapers. So many people have asked us how we create these beautiful wallpapers and we are happy to share some of the aspects of how it’s done.
After a time of research and creative contemplation, we put up white paper the same size as our panels onto our studio walls. Usually 20 panels, each 3′ (91cm) wide are used for each design. This allows for 60 lineal feet to encompass a typical room space without repeat of the design. Next the design is drawn full scale in our studio on white paper with pencil. Refinements are made until the design is completed.
The pattern is laid upon a table and the transparent raw silk is placed over it.
Next the design is sketched onto silk which has been prepared with a special technique that allows the design to show through the transparent silk.
Then the design is painted into the line drawing sketch.

The end results in fabulous chinoiserie wallpapers that are timeless in elegance and a luxurious in detail. Such beautiful works of art.
We’d like to take you on a short journey to China with this animated video of the Procession of the 87 Immortals. It gets a bit redundant but a few seconds watching is interesting. The music is soothing and the sojourn will immerse you in Chinese Culture.
