We're considering wallpaper for our entryway, and my husband has almost convinced me that we should go with Hinson's classic 'Martinique' wallpaper (above). The banana leaf pattern has been used in many well-known locations, including the Dorothy Draper-designed Greenbrier Hotel, New York City's Indochine restaurant and most famously, the Beverly Hills Hotel. I'm a little hesitant to go so bold, but there's an undeniable appeal to this leafy print. What do you think, would you wallpaper a narrow entry hall in this pattern?
