In July '06 when I posted this lavish image styled with de Gournay chinoiserie wallpaper, as seen in Elle Decoration, August 2004, it caused a mini sensation. Recently I stumbled upon other pages from the feature.
Now I'm more obsessed than ever with draping beads on poor unsuspecting objects. (BTW: the wallpaper here is "Badminton" on lead-grey dyed silk ground.)
Oh and speaking of Asian aesthetic inspiration, don't forget Buddha in Paradise: A Celebration in Himalayan Art, opens Saturday, October 13 at Emory's Carlos Museum. This exhibition is on loan from the Rubin Museum of Art, to celebrate the visit of His Holiness the Dalai Lama.
