If you caught my sneak peek of The Real World New Orleans house on Tuesday or the premiere last night, you might have noticed that the house is heavy on city-centric décor. From Mardi Gras accessories and a purple, green, and gold palette to jazz influences and symbolic elements like fleur-de-lys, there's not a chance you could mistake these swanky digs for any other city.
One bedroom in the house seemed to be inspired by New Orleans's spookier, voodoo edge with a skeleton posed against an above-ground cemetery mural and skull wallpaper and carpeting. While I'm sure the mural was commissioned, the skull décor is actually pretty accessible. Wondering where you can pick up the deadly designs? Then continue reading.
The wallpaper is the Skulls Wallpaper ($145) in legendary fashion designer Barbara Hulanicki's new collection for Graham & Brown. I've seen the paper in person, and with a tactile flocking, it really has a magnificent texture.
The carpeting is Flor's Skully Tiles ($14). You'll notice that the decorator has used Flor tiles throughout the rest of the house, including some tiger printed tiles that would make any LSU alumni proud!
