Like the movie, the bold leafy pattern is enjoying its second round in the spotlight.  Don Loper introduced his chic “Martinique” wallpaper pattern in 1942 at the Beverly Hills Hotel, and shortly after, Dorothy Draper designed her own take, “Brazilliance“, in her 1948 makeover of the Greenbrier Hotel in West Virginia.
