This wallpaper is named after Deauville, a seaside resort on the Côte Fleurie of France’s Normandy region, on the English Channel. It’s a beloved wallpaper by the English and the French. It works perfectly in this Capitol Hill nursery (along with very cute decorative air balloon). Recently I’ve installed several wallpapers like this pattern sold by Serena & Lily reminiscent of the light summer colors you’d find in French toile.
Sandberg’s Raphael wallpaper is our client’s choice of wallpaper in her powder room (above chair rail). It is especially fitting since the house is located in a community Arboretum. This community, located in a close-in Maryland-DC suburb, has invested in making the neighborhood a green oasis of healthy, beautiful trees. Now the powder room is an extension of that oasis.
Weather didn’t cooperate this past weekend but I did get to watch the sunrise launch of several beautiful balloons at a local festival. Fun Fact – the 1st manned flying machine was a hot air balloon made in 1783 by Jean-Baptiste Réveillon, a wallpaper manufacturer in Paris. BTW … hot air balloon wallpapers continue to be very popular especially for nurseries and children’s rooms.
