GOING BANANAS


Yes, it's the Beverly Hills Hotel for your feet! (Or your handbag.) Charlotte Olympia's summer line includes these fun tributes to the famous banana leaf wallpaper - apropos, since it's everywhere these days. The original Martinique wallpaper is available HERE. Below, a few banana leaf stylings, old and new.

A recent offering on One King's Lane - upholstered chairs from Madcap Cottage:  John Loecke & Jason O. Nixon.

Madcap Cottage again.

A Tommy Bahama banana leaf print tablecloth sewn into pillows by yours truly - I found the fabric, needed to own it, but did not need a tablecloth...  A girl's gotta do something to justify impulse buying!

I adore what you did with those chairs! So fabulous! I have always been inspired by the banana leaf wall paper after staying at the Beverly Hills hotel for the first time as a little girl. xx

Hi Skyla
I am a newcomer to your lovely blog and I am particularlyin awe of your incredibly gorgeous apartment....I am so inspired as I also live in a VERY tiny studio apartment in Dubai. At the beginning of the economic downturn I decided to downsize in a big way and I moved into a tiny apartment from a two bedroom , luxury dwelling...it has been a HUGE adjustment , particularly as I had to put most of my furniture in storage.Even though I am a designer here in Dubai, it has been a challenge to try and decorate a small space in a stylish and economical, way and I have to confess that I gave up...Now, having seen your wonderful space, I am newly motivated to start on mine again and really make it glamorous and special! Thank you for sharing your lovely home...I look forward to reading your blog regularly!
Julie
