Get the Look: How to Incorporate This Iconic Banana Leaf Print Into Your Life
Made famous by the Beverly Hills Hotel, the Martinique wallpaper is the tropical print you’ve seen everywhere but never really realized.
The large, bright green leaf print (available for purchase here) was first created by designer Don Loper in 1942 and has since been used dramatically in celebrities’ homes, hotels all over the world and even on TV shows like The Golden Girls. Remember Rose, Blanche, Dorothy and Sofia’s banana leaf wall “headboard” and matching bedspread? As if you could forget.
