Not what I thought

...John Robshaw's bedroom would look like.

For one, it's a badly lit photograph and that's coming from someone who doesn't know squat about photography. Second, that wall color just does not work in this space. And the "art wall" behind the bed is just sad. Really sad. Kind of a bummer.

But I still find his textiles irresistible.

Well, hmmmm...
I like it, because I like the stuff in it, but just not all together like that. It's kind of a cluster f***. Even the pieces on the wall are not put together right (i.e. the piece that is partially behind the headboard...hate it).

I'm with NKP, the wall color is really unpleasant.

I wonder if that's BM Cedar Green I just used in my hallway? In there, it looks hospital-ish.

Just about everything about this room bugs me. NKP is right--the photography is just bad to begin with and it doesn't do much to enhance this rumpled jumble festival.

Funny--the other day I just looked at a set of his sheets that I couldn't afford. He looks like he's about to slide off that bed.

It looks like he moved into a hospital in Morrocco and hung up sympathy cards with thumbtacks for a more "homey" feel.

The only thing I like in this picture is his bathrobe.

Erin, I love your sense of humor and your comment.

SO not what I would have thought either. He needs one of the stylists for his products to fix that mess.

I'm with Erin, i like the bathrobe, oh and the lamps and the cushion on the chair with the bird on it. Other then that it's just a whole lotta mess.

i have no idea who john robshaw is but i'm neither a fan of the bedhead or the colour on the walls...

I cannot stand this room. I love the headboard, but the wall and bedding colors are too raw, too light. Can't stand the photo either. The eye's point of rest is the humongo white quilt at front right.

Me neither!

Yeah. Horrifying. Missed opportunity!

Custardbydesign - Robshaw is a rock star in the designer bedding world and one would expect a better presentation from him for a major shelter magazine.

P.S. Hello and welcome to this deliciousness!
