John Robshaw's New York Apartment...


Textile Designer John Robshaw's New York apartment is featured in New York Social Diary.
I'm usually one for a spare and light-feeling space, 
but this apartment, filled with John's art, books, and travel treasures,
 is a real feast for the eyes...

(The gray walls are Ben Moore's New Hope Gray)

How divine!!!! This is full of character, personality and eclectic charm. I am a big fan of his prints - just picked up two pillows in blue and white. xo

Looks a bit too well lived in. Amazing collection, but rather careless in it's construct.

I love big paintings in small places, as in that first photo. I think people are hesitant to do it, because it's a commitment to living with a work of art in a very immediate way; but it is so often how the work was created in the artist's studio. There's an intimacy and an expansion of space rather than the pre-supposed constriction/limitation of it that I find so wonderful. I wish people would be more daring in terms of the art they collect and the spaces into which they install them.

This is a home, not a showplace and is all the more refreshing for it. So many designer's home featured in publications looked tidied up and sterile. Messy is how most of our homes look...until we give a dinner party and than frantically tidy up!

Kudos to Mr. Robshaw who seems to live a full and busy life.
