Julie's Living Room: Banana Leaf Love

Did anyone else check out Nicky Hilton's dining room in InStyle? Well, we did and we adored her use of Hinson's iconic Martinique banana leaf wallpaper.  So pretty with the coral accents!

This print is so classic, despite the fact that it's as bold and colorful as it is.  We love it in Brian Atwood's Milan living room, paired with neutral black, white, and brass...

...and in this entryway via House Beautiful:

Needless to say, we were thrilled when we stumbled upon this throw pillow for my (Julie) living room.  Since we can't plaster our rentals in wallpaper, throw pillows are one of the ways we bring pattern into our small spaces.  We love how it looks against the gray velvet of my couch.

Are you smitten/brave enough to go for a bold wallpaper in hour own home? If you vow to steer clear of borders (slowly dying just thinking about those), we think wallpaper is a great way to bring a little of the unexpected into any space.
