Elle Decor featured John Robshaw’s New York living room, shown here, as an example of Asian influence:
I recently shared a few photos of my living room, and am well aware that the look may not be one of the most popular Pinterest-worthy looks. I don’t paint walls white. I avoid pastels. When I do paint furniture, I don’t paint it shabby chic. I paint it to look like an old Chinese cabinet. I’m bored with the usual Christmas wrapping paper seen for the past 40-something years of life so I designed my own India-influenced holiday gift wrap.
This is okay with me, I create and live in a place that reflects our style and places where we’ve traveled.
But sometimes I wonder, because it’s not what most people are doing and pinning. Of course you should be true to yourself and not worry about the trends. You have to make a home where you feel happy. Sometimes the current trends fit what you like to do. Sometimes they don’t. Trends shouldn’t matter. Still it’s nice to see that others like the look that you like!
