Welcome to Robbie Adobe, a blog delving into design dreamland—from interiors to exteriors, bodies, milieus, and collections of all kinds, I strive to capture the casual elegance of life. The whitewashed earthen brick of a low entry wall, herringboned fireboxes, slick waterfall countertops, honed stone surfaces, native flowers, enfiladed gardens, cinderblock walls, seamless glass surfaces, vanishing thresholds: the space where interactions between form and function interweave. This is what I will focus upon, study, and deconstruct, all to share my interpretations and insights into design.
Edith Wharton, famed writer and tastemaker, will act as my guiding light; her preoccupation with form and correctness, in social interactions, art, design, and writing, has shaped my own interactions with the world, both written and physical. And, as such, in this house, the Robbie Adobe, we celebrate both form and function, sometimes together, sometimes apart, but always pursue them, in all locations and presentations. To finding the joy!
