Wallpaper Weekly, no. 23 / Gracie Studios for Tory Burch Runway

Manufacturer: Gracie Studios / Pattern: Custom Handpainted Chinoiserie Scene

How elated were we when we heard the news yesterday? Tory Burch Fall 2012 Runway featured a wallpaper clad set – deeming it the perfect wallpaper weekly selection for today.

“For Fall 2012, we were inspired by the idea of a prim girl who’s under the spell of the wrong kind of guy. She’s an innocent, unaware of her own sex appeal. The setting? The hotel where they meet.” — Tory

"Our runway set is like a hotel lobby with beautiful @graciestudio wallpaper" - Photo tweeted by @ToryBurch 2/14/12

For the ‘hotel’ runway set, Tory chose a wallcovering that is perhaps Gracie’s most iconic – as seen on the pages of Vogue in Tory’s own NYC apartment, and one of the most famous images of Pauline de Rothschild, also from Vogue, 1969 – both pictured below.
