Graphic Novel Antique Geek Chic

This is one of my favorite rooms and my favorite weeks.  The couple was awesome (and only a few blocks from where i live) and you can kinda go crazy for a guest bedroom because its more of a temporary space.

First off, that wallpaper is insane and amazing and I think i have romantic feelings for it. I’m not going to leave Brian, its not that serious, but I just want to stare at it all day.  Its by Pottok Prints in LA,  I think you can buy it at Walnut Wallpaper, as well.  It’s really really really incredible because even though it is a pattern, it feels totally hand-drawn, endless and the characters in it are so entertaining.

The big soft rug is West Elm, 8×10 $649  buy here

Everything else in this shot is vintage.

Those sconces were from West Elm and you can purchase them HERE. 

The bedding is from West Elm, but again i can’t find it on their web-site.  That’s the great thing about West Elm  – they change their lines seasonally so you don’t have to worry about the world having all the same stuff as you.  But it also means you have to gobble things up quickly or they’ll be gone. Like these sconces and the eyelet bedding.

Vintage, all vintage, but thats a close up of the wallpaper.   I’m obsessed.  I want to do it in a kids play room and let them color it in with markers.

The bed is from Sanctuary Interior Design.    I think it was around $800.  But i got it within two weeks and the color and welting options are endless.  You can get it as a full bed, too, but i wanted to save a bit of money.  I love it.

Please notice the amazing black ball fringe on all the drapery/shades.  It was so adorable in person.  And the easiest DIY ever.

Dresser is vintage from Palm Springs, I think the lamp is new but i forget where from.  That O was from the Rose Bowl for $60, then painted white.

The green is Glidden, ‘Olive’.  The chair was already theirs and the lawyers cabinet is from Hernandez brothers on Santa Monica for $500.

All these pretty pictures are by the Awesome, talented, and handsome, Mark Champion

Sorry, i’m rushing. but all in all it is one of my favorite rooms.  One of my favorite couples.  One of my favorite weeks.  The wallpaper is a splurge, but the amount of impact in the room is serious.

So what did y’all think?
