In Texas there was a certain look, in the mountains of Wyoming there was another. Here in Nebraska I've noticed local trends too. I'm not a fan of all of them, but they do influence my design, both in taste and for re-sale preparation.
So when I was going through a NYC phase (I've wanted to visit the city for decades but the time has never been right--even now its not, I get claustrophobia thinking about it), I decided to gather decorating inspiration from homes that are in the Big Apple.
Do you see anything in this collection that inspires you?
What strikes me about many of these is the drab almost matching of city skyscraper grey. Mentally that wouldn't work for me. So the orange accent thrown in the next picture is a delight.
The green and white? Even better. I'd need some brightness wherever I could get it.
I'm a fan of the table and benches in this studio below. It's so similar in function and looks to the country style Farmhouse Tables that are popular right now. Just switching the legs to the industrial looking pipe really ties it into a loft sensibility...and gives me ideas for switching up our dining table plans.
