John Robshaw Inspiration

John Robshaw's home in Elle Decor magazine!

We love this blue ensemble. This is John's Master bedroom. Notice the vintage coverlet at the bottom of the bed and the vintage batik pillow on the bed. Mixes so well with John's bedding.

His living room. Stunning! Love how his pillows look great on the sofa and the bed. Mix and match to keep things interesting. This sofa is done in his own fabric too. John has collected these items over the years in his travels. Don't be afraid to mix things together that you love.

John visited our store awhile back. We had a great time! John loves our store and of course we love him. We carry a large amount of his bedding and all of the ethnic things that go with his line. 

John and Susan discussing ideas. The pillows on the right are his of course.

We are fully loaded with John Robshaw pillows and his fabulous bedding line. His style is so versatile and fun.

His line even includes table top.

 Old Suzani quilts in aqua mix well with John's pillows. 

This neck roll pillow pairs well with a Navajo look too. 

Red stripes are perfect for the holidays. This pair just came in.

More holiday reds..

Grain sack pillows with red and green stripes. Just in.

This cozy, chunky knit pillow just came in.

Pink and black stripes. 

Pink tribal prints. This works so well with John Robshaw fabrics.

This vintage print looks like old Tuscany.

Green and blue tribal pattern. 

An amazing folk art rooster all done in seeds and beans.

Well done and a true conversation piece. This was done in the 1960's.

We have four of these. Make your doorway or backyard glow with these wonderful vintage wall hanging lanterns.

For all our soft pink lovers. This Bella Notte bed is done in "Petal" pink and "Seaglass". Once again "White" mixes well and adds depth to the collection.

Velvet, lace, satin, cotton.. love!

Close up of the new "Betty" sheets by Bella Notte. They are so pretty and come in all the colors.

My favorite recipe
by Susan



Brussel Sprouts sliced in half

Cauliflower cut in small chunks

Olive Oil

Sea Salt, Pepper

Herbs from garden such as Rosemary and Thyme

A few slices of garlic


Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees. Put vegetables in a large roasting pan. 
(I use a large Pyrex dish)

Drizzle with olive oil (enough to coat vegetables)

Sprinkle with salt and pepper

Roast uncovered in 400 degree oven for 30 minutes. Leave uncovered.
(You can stir the veggies every now and then so they don't brown too much.)
