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.

I was sitting around watching Fashion Police on E! the other night (I’m so glad Joan is back, speaking of, have you seen Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work? It’s EXCELLENT!). Anyway, once I got past all of those gold drapes, pictures of stars in outfits good and bad and hanging glass bubble, I noticed this fabulous wallpaper:

It’s Graham and Brown Barbara Hulanicki Viva Pattern Wallpaper, and it’s one of my favorite things we shill over here at Design Public. Here’s what it really looks like in all its glory, not what it looks like taken from a television screen with an iPhone camera!

Q&A with Susie Mendive of SUM Wallpaper

I never thought I would say this, but thanks to designers like Susie Mendive of SUM I am actually ecstatic wallpaper has made such a solid comeback. This is gen-u-ine excitement. My parents coated our home with wallpaper in the early 80’s, and it wasn’t pretty. It was so bad I remember as a little girl trying to peel it off to hint to my parents that they needed to do something with the walls. Now, times are different and I want to paper my walls myself!

Wallpaper actually gets me all riled up so I apologize in advice for my lengthy list of questions with Susie Mendive. Enjoy!

I know a bit about your background…a graphic designer with a graduate degree from North Carolina then to LA then to NY as art director with stila cosmetics…but I think there are some holes, especially in how you transitioned from branding cosmetics to designing modern wallpaper. Tell us more! How did SUM come together?

It happened very organically. I very much wanted to design and produce my own product and call all the shots. It just made sense at that point in my career. There is a lot of hard work involved and it can be consuming but I like taking it one step at the time.

Tell us about the name, SUM. How did you come up with this?

My husband and I were in Tokyo and it just hit me, Su is from Susie and M from Mendive but more than that it was the idea of a total home concept…SUM of all parts. A total approach to design and living.

The female silhouettes of your Floral Femme Fatale prints are an amazing graphic. They have a significant presence let alone bring Read the rest of this entry »

A Piggyback on Black and White Bedding

Cavern Home Blackbird Wallpaper

I came across this image from Cavern Home shortly after Becky posted last week on Black and White Bedding and I knew right away that this was something I had to share. This space may be a bit too “matchy matchy” for some, but visually I think this room is stunning! Can you imagine the room without the Blackbird Wallpaper? I surely can’t. I try to vision the wallpaper replaced with wall art and I think, “No, no, no.” It might work if the pieces were super simple and super white and super clean, like large white frames with white matting and a simple image in the center, but it wouldn’t have the same feel. I think Cavern Home hit the head on the nail with this place. Bravo Cavern Home! Bravo!

To recreate the look checkout the Cavern Home Blackbirds Wallpaper options on DP.
