The rooms that interior designer Collin Robison creates in the Newtown home he shares with his longtime partner, Trent DeBerry, might be seen by some as perfect compositions, yet many objects within are imperfect. “I love chipping white paint, distressed floors, things that are irregular, that have uneven edges,” notes Robison. “I am attracted to whatever is imperfect.” And, yet, Robison admits to awakening in the middle of the night to readjust—and perfect—a stuffed cockatoo on a console or to reposition a vintage top hat on the head of a bison that appears to be sniffing greenery draped on the mantel.
