If walls could talk, then those swathed in de Gournay’s magnificent bespoke hand-painted wallpapers must surely reveal the best stories.” Fiona Mccarthy – WISH Magazine, the Australian November 2020.


Published by Rizzoli late last year, ‘de Gournay – Hand Painted Interiors’ was special not only for being the first book on our company but also for offering a unique form of escapism in the face of unprecedented events caused by the Coronavirus pandemic worldwide.

Exploring its development from cult niche to established industry leaders in the creation of the world’s finest hand painted wallpapers, the book brings together imagery of some of the greatest installations of our designs ever undertaken. A curated journey though projects from across the globe, executed by the leading arbiters of interior design: from the exuberant flair of Miles Redd & David Kaihoi in New York and the nuanced elegance of India Mahdavi in Paris, to the pristine modernism of Kelly Wearstler’s West Coast aesthetic and the contemporary polish of Martin Brudzinski in London.

Including too his daughters Hannah and Rachel, company directors alongside their father, the book demonstrates the inherited tradition that enlivens each of their own homes – a series of expressive interiors bought to life with a charm and character that embodies the artistry of all we create.


“The company, which now has showrooms in London, New York, Paris, Moscow, Shanghai, San Francisco, and most recently, Beirut, thrives on the irrepressible energy of its founder. “He is already on to the next idea before his previous idea has even become a thing,” says Hannah. “And because he is always full of ideas and passion, and even though de Gournay has been going for more than 35 years, it always feels like this is just the beginning. There is never a sense of complacency – we are always open to doing new things, going in new directions.” - Fiona Mccarthy, WISH Magazine, the Australian November 2020
