papier martinique

by jolevitan



this wallpaper transports me into a grandmothers palm beach kitchen, crusts cut off my egg salad sandwich, school out for christmas holidays, spick and span white linoleum tile beneath my feet, a day broken up with beach, mall, and american television. i could say i got comfortable with this iconic print from lady lunches at the beverly hills hotel, but that would be a lie. i feel these pangs of sentimentality because it was the paper that decorated blanche’s bedroom in the golden girls.
