Jenny Blanc Writes…Wonderful Wallpaper Part 2: Tropical Prints

Wonderful Wallpapers - Tropical Prints
The iconic banana leaf wallpaper at The Beverly Hills Hotel created by Don Loper in 1942 has made tropical prints a design staple that has come to be an emblem of luxury and elegance

Jenny Blanc PictureWith a heatwave in London what better way to anticipate Summer than with some simply gorgeous tropical prints? Don Loper created the banana leaf print wallpaper in 1942 for The Beverly Hills Hotel (see above). The palm leaf is an especially timeless motif; from bold geometrics to more traditional prints, which were introduced in colonial times, images of tropical leaves and palm trees are a go-to for creating a sense of the exotic, luxury, travel, and therefore, adventure. The verdant green leaves create a sense of lush fertility. However, the current trend sees tropical plants represented in all different forms and colours by the major design houses. From tonal variations in green and blue by Nobilis, to oranges and golds. There is a real trend, wherever you may be, for bringing an exotic touch into the home.

Nobilis have created a stunning and hugely varied collection of palm leaf prints in their Cosmopolitan collection…
