Down here, in the south, we have something comparable called an 'elephant ear'.

I featured this same space (different photo) in a recent Ideabook about the color green. My best guess is Picnic 6731 by Sherwin Williams. Also, take a look at Early Spring Green 2032-50 by Benjamin Moore.

This room is WOW! Love the boldness of the large banana leaf and the quietness of the Buhdda head. Do you know the source for the head?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

ds design studio added this to Storage Style: Apothecary Jars
Why not put out lemon and lime candy on the coffee table to match the rest of the citrus furnishings?
Here's a lead glass transom used pretty much only for ornamention; however, it's large enough and wide enough to add more light into the space.
Janell Beals - House of Fifty Mag added this to Green Brings a Room to Life
Here green is used in nearly a shocking fashion. Mint green walls, chartreuse pillows and a throw mixed with vibrant Kelly green foliage adds up to a dramatic space.
4. Green (avocado, kelly, grass, etc.) is a secondary color with harmonious emotional content. Green draws life from yellow, while blue lends a calming effect. One of the only unanimous forms of beauty is nature; green is the predominant color in nature — commonly regarded as the ideal color, carrying the positive charisma of all hues.
Amy Renea added this to Mix and Match Greens in Design
If you would like to include a blue-toned mint green and a bright greenish yellow, bridge the two with a neutral green. In this example, a focus grabbing statement leaf in deep kelly green is the perfect medium between the wall color in the background and green accessories in the foreground. Also notice how the green and yellow combination is emphasized again in the gladiolus.
Shawn Gauthier added this to Emerald Green Pulls Nature Indoors
Use indoor house plants in a creative fashion. I have no idea if this enormous leaf is real or faux, but it certainly creates a commanding statement that goes beyond your everyday houseplant. Tip: Looking for an inexpensive way to incorporate more of a color trend into your home? Fill affordable glass jars from Michaels or T.J.Maxx with colorful candy — like on this coffee table. Who knew your sweet tooth could benefit your design sense?
Lisa Frederick added this to Candy Adds a Sweet Design Touch
This space takes the same tactic in an entirely different direction: Jars of green and yellow candies on the coffee table enhance the palette and add a lighthearted touch.
Samantha Schoech added this to 10 Beautifully Blossoming Spring Centerpieces
A single palm frond or tropical leaf is modern and sculptural and also all things spring: fresh, green, dewy.
Fred Albert added this to Home Accessorizing Made Simple
Keep your eyes entertained. Here's another instance where the accessories pick up the dominant accent color in the room and give your eye someplace to travel. The glass compotes on the coffee table make even ordinary objects look special.
Isn't it truly amazing what a difference one huge leaf can make? The single giant strelitzia leaf in this Los Angeles home adds a fairy tale touch to a soothing green space.
