A London home that is a chinoiserie wonderland | Design Notes: Hannah Cecil Gurney of De Gournay

The English company de Gournay is revered for producing hand-made wallpapers and furnishings using fantastically complex and painstaking artisanal techniques; from reproducing hand-painted chinoiserie from virtually any period, to working with artists to produce contemporary designs using gilding, beadwork and embroidery. Hannah Cecil Gurney, whose father Claud founded the company in 1980s, grew up immersed in this world of pattern and beauty. She is now their global head of marketing and development, so it is little surprise that her London home, which she shares with her husband and children, has become the testing ground for the pieces she helps to develop.
