Ever find a great pair of shoes and then construct an entire outfit around themI spotted these banana leaf pumps in April's Vanity Fair and immediately thought of the Beverly Hills Hotel. 

I have long been a fan of Hinson's Banana Leaf Wallcover. It's fabulous on the wall, so why not on your feet?  Catch these wonderful banana leaf displays...

Even the Incochine in New York City has embraced the banana leaf.

A variation of the Hinson wall covering, Cole and Son offer the tropical wallpaper as shown in this design by Amber Interiors.  ( BTW, Amber's blog kicks some serious booty so you should check it out.  And no, I don't even know the gal.  I just know great when I spot it).

Bethany Herwegh's house is scrumptious in the same Cole and Son covering {check out more of Bethany's rooms as reviewed on House of Turquoise}.

Feeling a little Golden Girls, yet?  You know I love their style! {proof here}

Maybe you're not feeling the banana leaf 'love' enough to adorn the Charlotte Olympia Lucite pumps, or venture out in head to toe leaf...

Then maybe, just maybe, you'll consider papering your bathroom with a branch or two.  I've got my eye on this for my bathroom.   Oh yes.  Vivid Hue Home loves color and pattern, remember?
