OBSESSION…

May 15, 2010

I was recently at the Beverly Hills Hotel and as I passed the iconic Fountain Coffee Shop on my way to the Polo Lounge for afternoon tea was again reminded of my longstanding love affair with the Hinson Martinique Wallpaper that graces the walls.  Whenever I bring this pattern up in a crowd, oohs and aahs erupt, as most people know and love this paper.

I dream of one day having a space where I can either use it in a living room or dining room I can’t make up my mind.  I think a large open space industrial loft would do as well, then I could have it all.  Here are some musings on how I would decorate around this iconic paper…

I could just as easily go for a nice natural concrete floor, so you’ll have to choose your preference…

Just a reminder of the Banana Leaf yumminess…
