Azalea Trail Home Tour – Beautiful Hand-Painted Silk Mural

I took the annual home tour in River Oaks (“one of the five most expensive neighborhoods in the country” according to something I read once). Most of the homes there are very classic and traditional, so wallpaper us often used.

One home had a gorgeous mural in the dining room. It was a hand-painted scene on silk, by the De Gournay company. These murals are usually custom made to fit the room, so little pattern is lost trimming at the floor and ceiling, or going around doors and windows. The paints and colors are just beautiful. You can plainly see that they are painted by hand.

Even if you know nothing about wallpaper, it’s easy to spot the quality and purity of these hand-painted murals.
