Referencing your external environment can be a smart and sophisticated way of personalizing interior spaces.

Think of it this way -- if you really love the Golden Gate Bridge don't just hang a picture of it on your wall. Instead, extract colors from the photo and apply it to an accent wall or accent furnishing. You can do this with any picture of any place or thing.
Better yet -- reference the color scheme that is traditionally associated with imagery depicting the golden gate bridge -- BRIGHT orangey red + crisp blue (but then again that's on a bright and sunny day). Perhaps you want to more subdued color scheme? Find a picture of the famous landmark taken on an overcast day. And use that!

Wallcovering / Wallpaper | Beekman Stripe in Pearl | Schumacher
Why is this design trend exciting? It's inherently silly and it's magical to see patterns applying it in a serious manner. LOVE! Schumcher's Beekman stripe is a great example of containing an otherwise busy pattern. I'm hoping to find Cosby sweater inspired iterations of this up and coming wave of style! Fingers crossed! Stay tuned for pictures!
