De Gournay-Inspired Fabric Ideas

Now that our boys are getting bigger, I finally feel like I can reclaim a few spaces in the house that are  grown-up zones. One of these spaces is our living-dining room. Now that the toys are out of there, I am getting inspired to do more decorating.
One design feature I’ve been swooning over are fantastic wallpaper murals, epitomized by De Gournay. Let’s take a moment to swoon together…

  
    
  

I’m not ready to commit to a mural, but I’m thinking of incorporating something like this into a standing screen/ room divider. I’ve been researching fabric options, and here’s what I’ve focused in on. Let me know your favorite!

I found several gorgeous options by Nouveau Bohemian on Spoonflower, and I’m especially drawn to the Birds and Bees pattern in aqua or rose:   

The closest fabric I found to the mural wallpapers is the series Jenny Peony, Jenny Cherry Blossom, and Jenny Kumquat by Domesticate on Spoonflower.   

Another print that I love is Robert Allen Vintage Plumes for Dwell Studio.

This pattern is available in yardage in jade:
  

Or as bedding in dove from Dwell Studio:
  

Or how about Robert Allen Neo Toile? I made need to make five screens! I found this and the Vintage Plumes on fabricguru.com, one of my favorite sources for decorating fabric, because it’s easy to search and has great choices.   

 

One more idea I have is to adapt some of my mom’s old paintings and print them on Spoonflower! That would be so special, if I can get the technology worked out.
