I’m a little behind in finishing my post on New York City. Ever since I saw John Derian's decoupage wall art, I’ve been a fan. I have to say it can border on cheesy if it’s not done right. But his work always looks classy and tasteful. For those of you that might not be familiar, Decoupage is the art of decorating an object by gluing paper cutouts onto it in combination with special paint effects, etc. Each layer is sealed with varnishes (often multiple coats) until the “stuck on” appearance disappears and the result looks like painting or inlay work according to Wikipedia. There is infinite possibilities for design and one is only limited based on their imagination. For the complete history visit National Guild of Decoupeurs..
He makes individual pieces that can be hung to create a picture. I love that it’s all individual pieces that create one piece of art. He also has paperweights, plates, platters, and all sorts of amazing accessories. I’ve been dying to visit his store tucked away in the East Village in Manhattan. I was so excited that I had a little time one evening to pop by. He has two stores side by side with one displaying home accessories and decoupage and the other one with mostly pillows, textiles and bed linens and carries my favorite textiles by John Robshaw.
Potted plants with boxwood.
Guy Wolff Pottery Decoupage galore! Amazing plates, decorative wall pieces, wall art, etc. He does everything from bugs, birds, trees, flowers, love letters, etc. Simply an amazing talent. Vintage Lighting.
Loved the over scaled shaving brush perfect for my 6’4” boyfriend.
I’m addicted to these antique egg and fern book plates. I have a ton of them from the flea market that I need to frame. Decoupage Skeleton looked great on the wall. An example of how breaks down the pieces to create a picture. Couldn’t quite capture it in the photo.Loved the over scaled ladel and whisk!
I loved this series below and the whale reminded me of Marblehead north of Boston. Beautiful textiles from John Robshaw. I want them all. When I grow up and have a real house, I want these linens for a guest room.
I hope you all have a great week!
