Jungle Fever

BANANAS. Lately I’ve been completely obsessed with jungle prints and in particular Hinson’s Martinique print pictured above. It originated in 1942 as a wallpaper in the iconic Beverly Hills hotel and has since reached somewhat of a cult status among celebrities and interior design junkies. I dream of using it in my livingroom (love the bold statement it makes in Nate Berkus + Brian Attwood’s place above!) or to spice up a bathroom (see below), but until then these stunning Martinique inspired pillows I bought last week will do the trick!

  1. I love this jungle themed wall paper, especially in the bathroom! Tack sa mycket for the inspiration!

  2. wow.. the wall looks so funky! Sometimes really life-like too.

    If you like wall-designs, you should check out some of these really beautiful Wall decal stickers I came across yesterday on Amazon:

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Removable-Vinyl-Sticker-Mural-Decal/dp/B005MDV1NK/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1366699267&sr=8-1&keywords=wall+decal

    p.s. they’re also really cheap! Be warned: they are difficult and time-consuming to put up though (I read the user reviews).

    Love the fashion blogs you have, and the interior design ideas :)

    XOXO

  3. Absolutely love the print! On the first picture I was a bit hesitant but on the other ones I realized how beautiful it really was!

  4. I’ve been noticing the jungle pattern on clothing for a quick second and I think it’s a fun pattern for summer but I can’t help but think of Blanche’s bedroom wallpaper from ‘Golden Girls’. Anyone else with me on that?

  5. I really dig the banana leaf motif, it reminds me of something you’d see in the Caribbean! The wallpaper is absolutely beautiful and would put anyone in a good mood right away when walking into that room!

  6. So in love with the outfit on the last picture! really cool !!
