Affordable Adler

Jonathan Adler, of course!  You can’t help but have a crush on the happy, colorful, cheery designs of Jonathan Adler. 

Have you seen his 10 Commandments for a Happy Chic Home?  

1. Thou shalt embrace maximalism.
2. Thous shalt not deny thyself hotelish comfort at home. 
3. Thou shalt buy an X bench.
4. If thy nest needest zest, consider thy crest!
5. Thou shalt mix fancy with frisky. 
6. Thou shalt honor the funsters of yore.
7. Thou shalt not commit murder (unless thou art murdering for a decorative accessory). 
8. Thou shalt not be afraid of orange.
9. Thou shalt play ping pong.
10. Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor’s house.

Go check out the narratives that go along with each commandment — so clever!
