(I need an icon that says..."geeking out". I'd make good use of that one. ;D)

Thought I'd share this for those who may not have seen it. I know a few of you geek over the design of the show like I do. Thanks to growyourwings for giving me the heads up. <3 (I have a twitter, but there are days I'm not on and miss lots of good stuff...)

Jerry Wanek is the Production Designer on SPN. I think he might just be my all time hero - especially for the stunning work on The Batcave. (The Wincave? The Letters Library? The Bunker 'o Love?)

He tweeted this recently:

Isn't that great?! I'm sure he's speaking to me!! (hee...of course I don't but I am definitely one of those people he's referring to...;D)

And this is the wallpaper he's referring to (from 8.12 As Time Goes By)

8.12 room & wallpaper

Clever huh? I didn't pick the reference to time when I was watching but now I see it, it's obvious. Hour glasses is what seems to be going on here. Though maybe it's up to interpretation.

I'd love to know how they find their wallpapers.

And I'm sure that light shade has been used before...(which means I'll have to investigate of course ;D)

I love the clean simplicity of this room.

I'm not sure what I love more - the fact that the wallpapers and room dividers DO reference the episode (and it's not just us making wild speculation) or that Jerry tweeted to let us know what he's done.


I've been working on the S6 motel post today and I got a little side tracked by the wallpapers. I want to make a collection of all the ones that have flowers in them. I've made a good start but with homeofthenutty down it makes progress much slower...:(

I'm also collecting all the murals. I love the murals!!! I've found, er..5 so far.

I'm still on a high after that last ep. Well, the last three actually. It's also nice to see fans bouncing about the place. I wonder if it's enough to bring some fans back...

Interestingly enough, that wallpaper design appears on walls and dividers in sync with the appearance of one character every time: a certain supposedly-dead archangel of the lord. *ponders*

Oooh...what? Look like I need to pick your brain on that one. Does this appear elsewhere? I mean, I know it doesn't like this but similar? Oooh...interesting.

My first thought when I saw the spoilers for their new home was ....*weep* no more motels. But I don't think that will happen because they will still need to travel across the country to investigate cases. I'm pretty sure we'll see more motels. ACK! I HOPE!!

That really IS cool! And if you need a caps gallery for S6, this might help: http://www.caps.swannees-place.com/supernatural/index.php?cat=7 ;D

Very coo!

And thank you! That's fantastic. I've been searching other sites but none have all the seasons. *phew* that's great. *hugs*

Isn't it!? :))

I'm having a blonde moment here, but what is the reference I'm seeing in the wallpaper???
9th-Feb-2013 02:13 pm (UTC)
I'm so glad it's not just me....don't get it. *hides head*

9th-Feb-2013 02:08 pm (UTC)
That is fantastic. And good to know they really are feeding us meta topics. :)
9th-Feb-2013 03:36 pm (UTC)
Isn't it?! I LOVE that they are giving stuff to meta about!!

Which means there HAS to be a good reason for them using plaid wallpaper in Amelia's motel room. If only to remind Sam of his past life...or something!! (I WANT IT TO MEAN SOMETHING!!)

I'm so glad we have you clever lot to pick these things up, and for show to throw them in :D
10th-Feb-2013 11:14 am (UTC)
I love that show throws this stuff in for us to obsess over! :))
9th-Feb-2013 03:54 pm (UTC)
Oh how I love this Show and the way they love this fandom - so glad we have observant people like you who can figure this stuff out, otherwise the set dec folks wouldn't find it nearly as satisfying :)

And YES, here's hoping more people will rush back to embrace Show!!

It makes me so happy that they give us little things like this. They have really embraced fandom. :))

I *love* this motel room. And I especially loved this perspective showing Henry lounging on the sofa. It's so Mad Men-esque. I'm on a mid-century modern kick right now. So this just is just <3 for me.

Yay! It IS a great room. It will be a while before I get to S8 motels so I hope I remember all this. :)))

I completely missed that. That room is awesome and the light is so perfect. Maybe that's why the sands of time art is on the wall. Where do they find the wallpaper? It is spectacularly hideous. The silvery ovally spots have small leaves in them.

What cracks me up is that from the outside, this place is an absolute dump, even for Winchester standards and this room is pretty nice. I love all the geometric shapes that have been in the last couple of episodes.
10th-Feb-2013 10:44 pm (UTC)
Yeah - I didn't pick it either. And I ALWAYS look at the wallpaper.

I would LOVE to know where they get it from. I wonder if they have a special suppler or they just go searching on line. If I do ever get a chance to ask (more) questions I'll have to pose that one.
