It’s below freezing again here in NYC, so imagining a tropical holiday is the only bearable way to get through the day. That, and a constant refreshment of warm tea.
These banana leaf and palm wallcovering will help with the mental preparation. The first image is from the Beverly Hills Hotel, which popularized the original palm Martinique wallpaper, still famous and fresh after all these years and making it into the residences of Brian Atwood and Nate Berkus, along with Nikki Hilton, whose namesake is in the hotel itself.
The second is another beloved place, in NYC, the Indochine restaurant, ever the classy establishment, not once out of style.
Here’s to an imagined balmy weekend!
