Wall Panel Art Inspirations
I love this quote from Questroyal Fine Art, “Very few things are purchased for a lifetime. Art is.” Rooms as art are investments for a lifetime as well.
One component of creating a remarkable room as an art investment, are wall panel installations. An inspiration for this post on artistically valuable rooms came from Veranda’s March-April 2014 issue, “Life of the Party” piece on Susan Gutfreund. She used 18th Century hand painted wallpaper installed in panels. The room is fabulous.
Love the door panels in her home as well.
18th Century Wallpaper Designs
Love the background color for this classic paper from the UK decorative arts company, Iksel. I wouldn’t cover up this paper with other artwork in my room. I would paint the walls in the background color for the paper and hang the paper in large white ornamented panels.
What do you think? An entire room papered or the paper in wall panels.
Like this Louis XIV Double Head Set Panel for $299.
The entire room papered. The wallpaper seams are very noticeable behind the sconces.
Beaux-Artes Classical Wall Panel Set is $199 for 4 corners and 16′ of molding framing the de Gournay paper. Picture the above walls with a center panel at least 36″ w x 72″H and narrow panels for the sconces 24″ W x 72″H. With the ceiling height double panel frames would look great.
This fabulous paper from de Gournay, is framed with a Garland Panel Set in an Aged Gold finish $199.
Another great wallpaper from de Gournay.
Antique wallpaper which is limited in quantity would be perfect. Here are some offerings from 1st Dibs.
Wallpaper is a great choice for the inside of panels. How about some very contemporary handpainted wallpaper with classical panels like this design from Timorous Beasties?
Here is that same paper installed as wallpaper.
I think I prefer the large scale contemporary patterns in wall panels. Timorous Beasties is based in Glasgow. Very interesting take on Toile.
The work of Iksel
The work of Feau & Cie is to preserve truly important rooms. Here is a wonderful blog post from one of my favorite artist blogs Surface Fragments on this one of a kind company.
