Nest by Tamara's design spotting: Famille Summer Belle's Manhattan Morning has me dreaming of Fall in the Big Apple

Today's Design Spotting:
I have a wallpaper crush 
on Famille Summerbelle
Sipping my morning coffee I contemplate what this Fall here in New York City will bring, and I am reminded of the busy, and, at times, awe-inspiring influences here in the Big Apple.  Filled with inspiration around every corner, New York City's optimistic season brings a bounty of surprises.  Autumn in NYC is spectacular! Over the past year I've seen a surge in wallpaper use, and it was all the rage at the various design shows I attended from Milan to New York City.  Other bloggers and designers are taking note, and check out Christian May's  Maison 21 about wallpaper popularity and mention of that topic in the Los Angeles Daily News paper this week.  On that note, 
English company Famille Summerbelle's  Manhattan Morning 
wallpaper landed on my design desk and I have a crush.  
I first spotted the UK company's lovely design at Tent London a few years ago.  The paper brings all the wonders of NYC together in a pretty toile package.  
It's fresh and moderne...

Okay, I admit I am equally enamored with their Paris wallpaper.  And, yup Autumn in Paris is pretty divine, so no argument there.
