Design: Tropical Glam

Hi MBG readers, its Amanda and I am back with two absolute summertime fave of mine: the iconic banana leaf print and the Massimo Vitali beach photograph. Not sure about you guys but there's no palm trees over here (in ohio) so I'm determined to bring the classic glam style of vacation destinations into our home.

And if you're not planning on any vacation soon, I've picked out a couple of pieces that will be sure to get you feeling the 'Palm Springs chic meets 1950s hollywood' vibe!
