Sparkly Leafy Greens

I am Guest Sparkling over at THINGS THAT SPARKLE!!!! You must go peep because Alex has an AMAZING blog filled to the brim with fabulous sparkly things! 

In other News,
I am obsessed...heavily obsessed with palm or leafy patterned fabrics and wallpapers. There is something so radical about feeling like your in some regency styled jungle world that only movie stars or "the fabulous" have the privilege of experiencing. 
I have been dying to do a powder room or my vanity nook area in any one of these patterns since as long as I can remember and everyday I get closer and closer to pulling the trigger. 

None of these options are cheap so maybe I will have to settle with a pillow for now? 
Thoughts on which pattern? 

I clearly have jungle fever.

  1. Thanks so much for your guest post Amber! Your home is so freaking gorgeous. And love love all these leafy greens. Can't wait to see what you do

  2. love the second one! and the last one reminds me of indochine in NYC. Growing up, my aunt had a sun room with a hug banana leaf print on a pair of sofas--she's trying to find a photo to do a "flashback friday."

    I say go for it!

  3. Love these leafy patterns. These designs remind me of The Greenbrier Hotel in WV, it was designed by the fabulous Dorothy Draper.

  4. I am drooling over the green leaf headboard!

  5. I think you are on to something! I was at my design marketplace (Philly) last week and I noticed a lot of large leafy prints and papers. I dig the idea of it in a closet or somewhere small and unexpected.

    I want to paper my TV nook and was thinking maybe leafy too... but I want it to have a black base. I'm just going to wait it out and hope the design fairies inspire me.

  6. Just saw this fabric this morning then read your post and had to leave you the link.

    LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the Peter Dunham print!!

  7. omg that C. Murphy headboard is to DIE for!!!

  8. First up, saw your post and it was brilliant- no large surprise there- your house rocks my life. Next, I'm with you in the most ridiculous way on this one- I've been lusting after that Dunham fabric for I don't know...EVER!!! Also, please god let me find a place/use for the wallpaper in the last two shots- love love love love love.
