I'm not normally into such bright colors in a room, but this is so well done. I love it.

I got an email from R&B about this last Thursday and am sooo happy. I love their furniture and there really isn't anything else like it in the DC area. I know someone who works for C&B and he said they don't worry about any of the other big stores (PB, Ethan Allen, etc) EXCEPT R&B.

I don't know if this is what you're referring to, but I got an email from them about 2 months ago that they were looking to open a store around 14th and W and had a survery attached. I think they sent it to their past customers who live in the area. I have bought several things from their NYC store. It also asked if I'd be willing to sit in on some panel discussions about the store, location, etc. I of course said I would but haven't heard anything from them since.

Not sure if this email has already been discussed here but that's the only info I've gotten on this.

Good lord, EM asked for advice on how to make improvements to the room, not a bunch of pseudo-psychologists advising her on relations with her parents.

Great job... and I love your shower curtain... mind telling me (us) where you got it?

Thanks, but I knew that - they are different lines by the same company. If it's leather, it's AL, if it's anything else, it's AU.

I've got a very similar one made by American Leather. Got it from Room and Board and it's great.

For all the haters here who think these people are nothing but slackers, did it occur to anyone they may actually have jobs but are just taking a vacation day to enjoy something different?

Jeez, reading some of these comments I'm waiting for someone to say "and I used to walk 20 miles through the snow to get to school with holes in my shoes" or something similar. Lighten up.

Adorable dog... but almost as importantly, where did you get that shower curtain???

A personal plea to Emily from Room and Board - we NEED one of your stores in the Washington DC area. I'm tired of going up to NYC every time I want to order some of your furniture. ;)

You have a great online catalog but I'm the type that needs to touch (and sit on) furniture before I order it.

I have to disagree with those here saying you should add some bright color. You've deliberately designed your room in neutrals and I'd stick with that but just add some contrast. Like some have suggested, I really believe something in a dark brown would work best.

I had a mildew smell when I first bought mine. Because there's such a tight seal on the door, it doesn't dry out if you don't leave it open. So now after washes, I just leave the door slightly ajar and the smell is gone. Problem solved. No need to avoid them.

What a great place. I really love the use of the neutrals and colors together.

I live just a few miles from this store and had no idea it was there. Thanks!

I agree with Misty... that's right up there with a refrigerator on the porch.

I just did this exact tile as a backsplash in my kitchen. And though I'm biased (I picked it out of course) I absolutely love it. Though I paid $20 per sq foot, not $15, so there's a tiny bit of buyers remorse. Thankfully I have a small kitchen so my lack of due diligence only cost me about $250.
