Hot Take: The Best Part of “Halloween Kills” Is This Wallpaper

I'm just going to come right out and say it: Halloween Kills was boring. Granted I'm no movie critic and it's entirely possible that I failed to notice all of the nuances in the sequel to 2018's Halloween, but as a fan of the original movie and and all-around pop culture junkie, the latest chapter just didn't do it for me. Why? Well, unsurprisingly, the 12th installment of the Halloween franchise follows the same (at this point predictable) storyline as its predecessors: Michael Myers wreaks havoc on Halloween night, sustains a number of life-threatening injuries, and then somehow miraculously survives. While I was personally disappointed by the movie's lack of originality, there was one thing that stood out to me: the wallpaper in Michael's old house.

In the new sequel, Michael Myer's childhood home—which, in the original film, was abandoned for the 15 years between 1963 and 1978—finally has new owners, Big John and Little John, a middle-aged couple who thoughtfully updated the notorious house. In addition to plenty of fresh paint, the pair added Fornasetti's instantly recognizable Nuvolette wallpaper from Cole & Son to the entryway. The designer-favorite print, which depicts a dark and stormy sky, proved extremely fitting for its scene-stealing appearance, serving as the backdrop of a bloody face-off between Myers and Laurie Strode's granddaughter, Allyson.

Of course the 20th-century print looks incredible in less horrific settings, too. But don't just take my word for it—see some of the most memorable Nuvolette appearances from the pages of House Beautiful below.
