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.

Thanks so much to Flickr member The beauty is in the details for adding pictures of her lounge to our Fresh New Spaces Group. It is a true lounge; don’t you want to curl up on that couch and watch some trashy shows on television, or sit with a bunch of friends and enjoy some cocktails?

The wallpaper adds vibrant energy to the room. It’s Sanderson Dandelion Clocks

Dandelion Clocks also make an appearance in the dining room. I don’t know about you, but I’m jealous!

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!

Flickr Faves on Fridays

Oh I am having a lot of trouble narrowing down my picks for today’s flickr fave. I caught up with our Fresh New Spaces group earlier this week and my finger is sprained from hitting “Add to Faves” so many times. Thanks to everyone who is adding their photos to the pool, it gave me a ton of inspiration on a yucky rainy day when I thought I was burnt out on design!

While I had trouble picking, I realized I was in awe of flickr member uydurrukcu’s eye. I was hitting “add to faves” over and over again, which sent me to her Profile and on to her blog. Posting from Turkey, she is great at finding fresh spaces, bathed in white with clever graphics and mixes of vintage, antique, modern and a bit of IKEA thrown in. Here’s a sample of some of the images she’s posted to our group lately:
