I have to admit that I am a sucker for anything hand painted. Classic de Gournay and Gracie wallpapers are right up my alley, as is any sort of Chinoiserie mural work (done right). At the Press Preview I attended a few weeks ago at the 2012 Kips Bay Decorator Showhouse, I was thrilled to see this gem of a room by Chuck Fisher Handpainted Murals & Design.
I snapped a few photos (copyright Melissa Hawks) – the space was tight, but charming — and his color choice was perfect and serene enough for an office. I was surprised to find out that he not only paints murals, but is also an accomplished book author (you’ve got to see his pop up books!) and designer of licensed home products. I enjoyed meeting him at Kip’s Bay!
He has designed fabric collections for Brunschwig & Fils and wallpaper for Schumacher. He has three signature china collections with LENOX (his British Colonial Collection ranks in the top 10 fine bridal china patterns in the U.S.) and paper collections with Caspari and CR Gibson. So, if you are looking for an accomplished muralist, check out Chuck Fisher! Enjoy! If any of you have used Chuck in your home, please post here!
