Last year I wrote a post about how much I liked Zooey Deschanel’s character’s bedspread on the set of her (then) new tv show New Girl was and it has been by far the most viewed post on this blog, which leads me to believe that many of you enjoy it as well! The frustrating bit is that no one could figure out where it was from! Realizing that it was probably a custom comforter made on set, I went in search for the fabric, but how easy could that be? I mean, really. There are too many fabrics in the world to ever be able to magically happen upon it in that manner.

Thanks to reader Eva, we now know! First we happened on this article from setdecorators.org which then by way of quick Google search led me to this.

And there you have it, friends.

Is it bad that after seeing David Fincher’s version of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo last night the thing that I came away with most is how awesome the design of those coffee cups were? Granted, I did think that they were black and white when in reality they are blue and white, but hey I’m still a fan of the bold minimalism.

Turns out they’re from Wayne’s Coffee, Sweden’s version of Starbucks, and apparently there’s one on every corner too. The to-go cups made appearances in several scenes.

Apparently, everything is better in Sweden when it comes to design. Even their coffee cups. Damn.

EDIT: FABRIC DISCOVERED. PLEASE VIEW THIS POST.

How wonderful is this bedspread on the set of the New Girl? After 20 minutes of googling “zooey deschanel’s bedding on the new girl”, I still can’t figure out where it came from. Perhaps it’s just some fabric the a fancy set designer found somewhere? Well, I love it. The black background, the colorful flowers… love. It reminds me of this calendar from The House That Lars Built, which is also wonderful.
