Tropical Carleton Varney Style


I just got back from a quick trip to Florida where banana leaves and palm trees are everywhere.  I just love the tropical landscape. These images I'm sharing today are both from Carleton Varney's book, Houses In My Heart.  In this house, he used a muralist to create these breathtaking backgrounds. How I wish he'd design the above for wallpaper!   Isn't it beautiful?

I'm dying over the fabric on the settee. I guess I never thought the tropical look could go formal.

Gorgeous. I especially love the mix of the palms with the trellis pattern below the chair rail. I am having some pillows made from palm print fabric for my formal living room. I love the feeling of bringing the tropical outside in to a formal space.
