Tropical Walls

By Erika Brechtel @smallshopstudio

Papered, painted, framed…and famous…

An island girl at heart, I will always love the easy feelin’ of a leafy green room. The look of Palm Beach, Palm Springs or just plain palm trees all get me immediately relaxed (plus a cocktail in hand doesn’t hurt). I’d most definitely take a stay-cation in any of these rooms:

I had to enlist the help of my girl Elizabeth at Modern 24/7 because I am embarrassed to say I was not fully aware of the fame that the Martinique wallpaper has so accumulated. Originally designed by Don Loper for the Beverly Hills Hotel in 1941, it has enjoyed a successful career of celebrity sightings, installs and screen time over the past 70 years, wouldn’t you say? The power of a graphic pattern…

Tropical walls add a lot of punch, don’t they?
