Not having been able to find a suitable damask wallpaper that we liked for either the dining room or the gold drawing room, (and following some encouragement from Kirk), we looked into finding some silk with which to upholster the walls of these rooms.
And we have found some. There are some lovely silk damasks made by Italian fashion house and furniture textilier Etro.
Etro is more known for its fashion...
It has some pretty out there looks, and is particularly known for its take on paisley.
But they also make a range of upholstery textiles.
Here are the damasks we have chosen for three rooms. First the yellow damask for the gold drawing room...
Secondly a green damask for the Billiard Room.
Finally the red damask for the formal dining room.
The colours for the red and green damask are slightly darker than shown in these photos, but are just as vibrant. The photo of the yellow damask is pretty close to actual colour.
Now we just have research which is the best way to upholster a solid masonry wall!
