Brooklyn Toile by Beastie Boys' Mike D

Toile du Jouy prints usually depict bucolic scenes of farm animals, couples on a picnic and such, but that won't do for Beastie Boys singer Mike D or Mike Diamond, as his mom calls him. When Mike wanted to decorate his Brooklyn house, he decided to fight for his right to design his own Brooklyn-themed toile wallpaper.

Collaborating with artists Vincent J. Ficarra and Adela Qersaqi of Revolver New York and wallpaper maker Flavor Paper, Mike came up with a design featuring scenes from the daily life in Brooklyn: the Brooklyn Bridge, Coney Island Cyclone, Notorious B.I.G., pigeons and Hasidic Jews walking by.

Want one? The wallpaper costs about $9 a square foot, so a 10' x 10' will set you back about $900. The Beastie Boys Brooklyn Toile is so awesome that it has just been accepted into the permanent collection of the Brooklyn Museum. Time to celebrate with some Brass Monkey!
