Bonkers for Banana Leaves

I cannot get enough of the Banana Leaf motif. It has been hot for decades upon decades in interiors from The Beverly Hills Hotel to The Greenbrier. Here are some recent banana leaf loves to share.

    Love this look. Harper's recently featured Rachel Weisz against a backdrop of banana leaf wallpaper and now I know how to source it!

    Great post! Thanks for the CR Laine mention. Did you know that the featured fabric on the CR Laine chair is pattern Brazilliance Palm … the same Dorothy Draper pattern that is featured as wallpaper in The Greenbriar. We have a major crush on Carlton Varney and the iconic Dorothy Draper. Thanks again for sharing.
