As I still struggle with the wallpaper choice for the laundry room, I came across some interesting information about Martinique Wallpaper and why it is considered "iconic". This wallpaper is considered one of the most famous wallpapers in the world, it's formal name is Martinique but casually known as The Banana Leaf Wallpaper.
It was designed in 1941 and based on the tropical jungles of central America. In 1942 it was used in the refurbishment of the Beverly Hills Hotel (where it is still used).
Which provided the setting for a recent Vogue photoshoot.
Remember 'The Golden Girls'? It was even featured in Blanches bedroom. (which makes me think of Bywater Boo's most recent post).
The Martinique is a classic and even now 70 years later it is still being printed and used in today's decor such as Nicky Hilton's LA home.
And, Brian Atwood's Milan apartment.
So the question is, is it right for the laundry room or will I feel like I'm washing clothes in a jungle? Thoughts????
