What a shame this piece is. I would have liked to seen Mr. Parker's design, not some rehash of Nicole Hollis or Shirley Meissels saying that men travel a lot and want a hotel look. What!!!??? Not. That is not what men want. Then the arrogance of Hollis to suggest that a man will blindly put his things where told and without question. What misandry (antonym of misogyny), which is rampant in the interior industry.

Then the photo from Benning Design with the electric guitars on the wall?? Whats that for? A man who is 40 going on 14?

Kudos to the daylight darkened Hollis room for the night shift physician.

One notable thing about misandry in the Interior Design industry: AIDS devastated what was a gay male dominated business in the 1980s. Women stepped in and did a pretty good job. But the last 5-10 years have seen an almost complete rebound of younger men who are now the stars of their field. They are approaching the zenith of their careers. Call me sexist, but this article made me realize that a man's room is probably best designed by a (gay) man.
