Find Jess from New Girl’s Childhood Wallpaper

My DVR has been stacking up with the Zooey Deschanel show New Girl. I finally caught up this weekend. It’s basically stupid funny, which we can all use a little of now and then. Anyway, the flashback to her youth totally cracked me up. While fretting about an upcoming date with that guy who is known as “that guy who was a Mac on the Apple commercials who used to date Drew Barrymore,” Jess laments to her friend “everything I know about sex I know from Spencer and the Clinton impeachment trial.”

We flash back to Jess as a tween, glued to her portable radio and tantalized during the 1999 trials in her girlhood room.

Afraid she’s been busted by her mom, she hurls the radio and replies “Mom?!?!?!? I’m not listening to NPR!”

However, the plot is beside the point. The star of this scene is that fabulous wallpaper. It’s fun, flirty, floral, a little retro-yet modern, pink and orange…what else could you want in a fun and eclectic wallpaper for a girl’s room? It’s Momento by Amy Butler for Graham and Brown. Yeah. We got that. What’s amazing is that it’s totally groovy in a retro mid-modern dining room, lounge, hallway, what have you – super versatile:

Are there any stylish TV sets you’ve been admiring lately? I can’t think of any that have knocked my socks off since Mad Men began. I had high hopes for Pan Am but they don’t really compare.

    Oh wait, I have to admit, I watch Gossip Girl and I think they do a really fun job on those sets!

    I’m glad someone thinks the same, i’ve been keeping up with the new girl series myself and i LOVE the apartment they live in. I’ts pretty deceiving considering the building it’s meant to be set in.

    The open plan kitchen/living room is a must have!

    Thanks for confirming this wallpaper print, it looks so funky! I’d love to hear more about the wallpaper used in shows like Mad Men too.
