Selena Gomez’s New Wallpaper Brings the Vacation Vibes Home
A closer look at her tropical take.
Published Jul 31, 2020 3:49 PM
While most of us have been perfecting our sourdough starters and crafting up a storm during quarantine, Selena Gomez has had a bigger project on her hands: moving. The actress-singer shared a sneak peek of her new place on Instagram yesterday—a $4.9 million, six-bedroom home in the Encino neighborhood of Los Angeles. (Fun fact: It was originally owned and designed by Tom Petty.) So far, it looks like Gomez has decorated a cozy nook in which to practice guitar, complete with burgundy velvet armchairs and some particularly fun tropical wallpaper.

Thanks to a little sleuthing, we discovered that the design Gomez opted for is called Paradisa from print-forward brand House of Hackney. Described as a “modern take on tropicalism,” the look’s inspiration came from 1930s Hawaiian chinoiserie—it depicts lush florals and curious parrots among a sea of soothing green. Gomez’s space already feels open and airy with natural accents like stone flooring and exposed wood beams (not to mention a flood of inviting light), making the addition of a flora-and-fauna wall moment all the more cohesive.
If you’re loving Gomez’s take and have a reno of your own coming up, you’re in luck. With endless unique wallpaper options to choose from, you can snag her look in no time. If you’re searching for something more understated, Calico’s hanging ivy design will transform your space into a garden, while Justina Blakeney’s “globe-trotting botanical” offers a hit of color to brighten a room.
