ART + DECORATION HONOR ROLL D orothy Draper first designed her banana-leaf wallpaper in 1939 for the historic A r r o w h e a d Springs resort in San Bernardino, California. Since then, the iconic pattern, Brazilliance, has become synonymous with Draper's inimitable style, one that focuses on exuberant colors and large prints that often cover entire walls. She also used striped papers to emphasize a room's height — The Greenbrier resort in West Virginia dazzles with Draper's striped and banana-leaf wallpapers — so what better idea than to combine them. Brazilliance Grove Stripe, created by Carleton Varney, president of Dorothy Draper & Co, is a fresh take on Draper's original design and adds height to a space by using banana leaves to create the classic Draper vertical stripes. Ideal for smaller spaces such as an entry, staircase, or powder bath, the new pattern comes in four vibrant colors — green, pink, aqua, and blue — and is also available in a fabric option. Brazilliance Grove Stripe, $278 per roll, at Rebecca Sherman LEAF IT TO CARLTON D eedie Rose's passion for great architecture — along with her ability to connect philanthropists, a r c h i t e c t s , a n d community leaders — has helped build some of Dallas' most important civic and arts projects, including the Renzo Piano-designed Nasher Sculpture Center, the Turtle Creek Pump Station designed by Cunningham Architects, and the Dee and Charles Wyly Theatre, designed by Joshua Prince- Ramus of REX and Rem Koolhaas of OMA. For her achievements, AIA Dallas and its Architecture and Design Foundation have recognized Rose with the 2021 George Foster Harrell Award — just the sixth time the honor has been bestowed in 40 years. Past recipients have included Margaret McDermott, J. Erik Jonsson, Frank Welch, Stanley Marcus, and O'Neil Ford. Rose will be presented with the award at the first annual Impact Dallas Gala, a black- tie event on Thursday, November 4, at The Thompson Hotel in the historic downtown skyscraper The National.
