A series of three floor-to-ceiling windows looked out on another garden, this one larger than Jenna’s. In the center, a fountain sprayed sparkling showers of water into the soft afternoon air. The drapes around the win¬dows were white satin with a delicate green pattern that I thought were supposed to mimic leaves. Likewise, the wallpaper was white with long green stems of grass, like a jungle, punctuated by the occasional brightly colored flower.
What is a mimic leave? A leaf or a bug which has wings like leaves?
Re: mimic leaves
The two words don't go together like that.

So the pattern on the wallpaper had a delicate green pattern that was designed to look like (to mimic) leaves.
