Our bespoke collections
It is a very special feeling when you find art that really speaks to you. The first time it happened to me was during a guided tour to a Bavarian castle in Germany a couple of decades ago when I saw a centuries old chinoiserie wallpaper with a beautiful patina and vibrant colors covering the walls of the castle’s drawing room. I recall the glimmering golden details in the early rays of daylight, rambling roses and butterflies and exotic birds in the sky. I felt touched. The sight ewoked so many thoughts in me.
Years later, I had never stopped dreaming about this magical place. I have strongly come to believe that we all need art in our lives. The closer we find it, the better. And a little bit of sparkle and shine certainly doesn’t make it worse. In interiors, art is necessary in order to create a personality, a soul, whereas a little bit of sparkle creates an illusion of space and liveliness. It is fun but still classy. The combination is often invigorating. This is why I like to use metallics and embroidery in our wallcoverings and textiles.
Seeing our handpainted wallpapers today, I cannot believe how beautiful they are. All the wallpapers are handpainted on pure silk or on gilded paper. Our artists and artisans are experts of creating the most beautiful details whether it is handpainted or emboidered. The designs are extremely versatile and well fitted in various different design settings whether the space is an art nouveau or a modern minimalistic one.
Orchard is an interpretation of my one century old apple and pear trees in my countryside home in Sormland. The design is 18 meters long, 2,5 meters high in it’s standard arrangement. It is painted on either silk dupioni or gilded paper background. It is possible to choose handembroiderd elements for the the silk versions.
We have created two different versions of the Orchard design. One is in which the trees stand separated from each other and they stand freely in each panel. This design is suitabled for framed panels and also when placing an order according to Fast Method. The elevation is less challenging as only the ground part requires pattern fitting with the next panel, when mounted together. The second option is a design in which the branches reach across the panels. In this design version where the branches move across the panels can be experienced more dynamic when mounted on a wall. In either of the versions, we recommend mounting by an experienced specialist.

The Starling design is tremendeously versatile and well fitted to both rooms with high ceilings and rooms that have low ceiling height. By simply adding unpainted silk below where the design starts, you are able create an illusion of the gracefully synchronized murmuration dance of these majestic birds. When the ceiling height is low, you simply choose to start the design from a lover height.

Calculate the quantity required
When it comes to succeeding in the outlay of handpainted wallpapers, measuring the walls is a critical moment.
Either of the following methods can be used: Bespoke Method and the Fast Method.
In this Ennisance adapts the chosen design to suit the client’s space and manufactures a mixture of standard and bespoke-sized panels to fit the room. This is planned by way of scale elevational drawings of the room showing the adapted design and panel-join layout. It requires that client first supplies accurate elevations and floor plans upon receipt of which Ennisance will calculate the total panel requirement. In order to creating an optimal effect and best fit to the space, please contact Ennisance for assistance.
- Client supplies drawings and detailed measurements of the room
- The design height will be adjusted to fit the ceiling height
- The height of the grass ground will be adjusted to fit the room
- The favoured sections of the design will be placed in the room according to the client’s wishes
- Manufacturing sample panels when ordering custom colorways
The Fast Method
The Fast Method is a simple straight run of design panels a little bit taller and wider than the space allows. The wallpaper is then cut on site to by the installer. To calculate the panel requirement the total width of area to cover is measured including any over-door or window surround areas. The total is divided by the width of a standard panel (90 cm) and rounded up to the nearest whole number to give the minimum number of panels to order. Off-cuts or plain sky panels can sometimes be used to paper over-door or over-window areas where these are slight.
Comparison of Methods
The Fast method must be used when ordering panels for a quick delivery. When used to order panels the process to placement of the order has fewer stages than custom orders making it noticeably faster overall. However, there can be considerable wastage during installation and only limited arrangement of the pattern for best effect is possible.
The Bespoke method requires the client to supply more accurate measurements and its additional charges make the cost higher although the low wastage makes the overall cost comparable to the Fast Method. The average lead time of a Bespoke project is longer but the pre-determined design placement make installation more straightforward and the customisation of the design to clients’ specifications makes each room more unique so it is the more usual method followed.

Starling is the majestic bird known for their gracefully synchronized aerial murmuration dances. It is a common sight in the Nordic countryside in the late fall and early spring. It is a stunningly beautiful bird. The design is painted on silk dupioni or plain silk. I wanted to emphasize the beauty of the Starling by mixing the watercolored elements with skillful handembroidery. We have silk thread stitching, metallic silk details as well as tiny glas pearls that make the bird look as if it shimmers and sparkles when the light reflects on it. Pretty much just like in real life.
Starling comes in three different colorways; Sepia dupioni silk; Dusty Pink dupioni silk; Champagne plain silk. Add hand embroidered elements for even more vibrant effect.

Having a bespoke handpainted wallpaper is a joy for life. The process or ordering and setting them up on the wall differs from how you work with regular wallpapers. Firstly, the room needs to be carefully measured. After the measures are taken, the design drawings will adjusted to the wall height and to any openings in the walls, such as doors or windows. A Chinoiserie wallpaper doesn’t have a repeat. Instead, they are created long to give an impression of dynamics and liveliness. Our Ennisance wallpapers are circa 18 meters long. All the panels are different from each other and go together in the ends. One should consider where any possible favourite parts should be located, as for instance embroidery. Discuss with us or an interior design specialist.
The History of Chinoiserie Wallpapers
The first Chinese wallpapers appeared for sale in Europe in the late 17th century. These hand-painted papers, and the chinoiserie decorative styles they inspired, sparked a fashion that lasted for centuries. (Source: Victoria and Albert Museum https://www.vam.ac.uk/articles)
