Hovey wallpaper

Our friends Porter and Hollister Hovey share a Brooklyn apartment that's chock full of antique-y pieces, like gin bottles, fencing masks and taxidermy swans. And they've just designed Anthropologie wallpaper featuring actual photos of quirky objects found in their home. (See more photos here.) Bravo, Hovey sisters!

P.S. Remember their old Halloween costume? :)

Wasn't one of them showing you potential apartments as well? Maybe as a move-in present they could "gift" you some of that fab wallpaper!

There's a definite Wes Anderson feel to their apt and little to their wall paper too.

I keep seeing this and reading "Harvey wallpaper" and thinking "WOAH! Invisible bunny wallpaper? Awesome!" but this is pretty neat, too :)

Rachael said...

Whenever folks say this type of stuff is hipster, I want to say, "but the best kind of hipster!" I bet kids would love looking at this and it would be so fun in the bathroom of an old house.
