The Painted Garden
Inspired by the garden frescoes at the Villa of Livia, we sought out a few modern ways to bring the outdoors in.
Matt Austin – a true discovery – is a modern-day muralist based in NYC who paints anything from a canvas panel to an entire room in a custom pattern – landscapes, gilded gardens, and even faux-plywood.
And for just a touch of the outside, there’s Natural Curiosities’ archive of textile artist Paule Marrot’s garden themes.
There’s also de Gournay, for the ultimate Art Deco luxury – hand-painted wallpapers in Chinoiserie patterns.
If hand-painted is out of reach, Schumacher offers a line of “Chinois” patterned linens.
