Found! The Geometric Wallpaper from Last Night’s “Good Bones” Episode

On last night’s episode of Good Bones, there were plenty of recognizable sights—Fountain Square, Kyle Ragsdale’s mural on the Canal, the Indiana State Fair midway. But what about that fresh, geometric wallpaper in the playroom of the large Fountain Square home that Mina Starsiak and Karen E Laine (aka Two Chicks and a Hammer) overhauled and sold for more than $300,000? We immediately searched for it on the Two Chicks Instagram feed and just ended up falling down a midnight rabbit hole, learning only that Tad, who leads the show’s demo crew, used to be an IU cheerleader.

Back to the wallpaper. The Two Chicks sourced it from a website called Spoonflower, which is kind of like a cross between Etsy and textiles. You can upload your own design and turn it into a fabric, wall covering, or gift wrap, or browse those by indie artists, such as Washington designer Annalie Hervi, who created the Mint Mod Triangles style spotted on the show. Starsiak ordered the “smooth” option, which is water-activated and removable and goes for $60 per roll, or $5 per foot. That deserves a big yell with Tad’s IU megaphone.
