Gucci's stores are all decorated with a chinoiserie wallpaper at the moment. A glorious mix of birds and flowers on a pastel background. The kind that you will find at Gracie or de Gournay and very reminiscent of the interior decor style of Pauline de Rothschild.
What interior design lover cannot reference the photograph of Pauline de Rothschild peeking through a jib door of her bedroom that is covered in a sea foam color chinoiserie wallpaper?
De Rothschild was so proficient in anything that had to do with design and was so singular in her style and flourishes that Vogue came up with the moniker - and column - Le Style Pauline.
Through out her homes - Paris, Chateau de Mouton, London and New York, de Rothschild decorating style was a fabulous melange of neoclassic elements and chinoiserie with a dash a drama.
