Eye Candy for Your Home

By

While visiting Santa Monica I took a walk to the downtown mall and promenade.  I asked Paul to join me and we ended up on a very long walk with shopping mixed in, much to his dismay. (Sorry, Paul) 🙂  I took a quick look in the Jonathan Adler showroom and couldn’t help but smile.  His mix of color and somewhat “quirky” pop-art accessories are dynamic.  I do not usually follow designers and their backgrounds but after my visit to his Santa Monica store I did a little research. Jonathan Adler has been making pottery since his teen years and has gone on to develop his own style of trendy accessories, furnishings and design.  I love his mission statement:  “We are a design company. Our philosophy:  Build a timelessly chic foundation, then accessorize with abandon.”  Here is a link to find out more about Jonathan Adler.

The Jonathan Adler storefront in downtown Santa Monica stands out in the crowd with the brass, navy and orange color scheme.

I hope this very limited peek into Jonathan Adler’s world has put a smile on your face, even if this is not your personal style.  There are are thirty store in many major cities where you can take a closer look.

Remember his philosophy:  “Accessorize with abandon!”

I totally agree-love your style and love your surroundings.  Whatever makes you smile!

Is there anything here in these pictures that make you smile?  Let me hear from you!

    Oh, my, almost accessory overload as I drink my coffee this morning ! This is what I love – the malachite wallcovering w/ the light reflecting gold, retro dinette style chairs, hands and feet on the tablescape, all the well designed and placed pillows, the glass or lucite and metal divider/ bookcases and bench, the peeled banana by the purple foot – What’s not to love? And finally, not for sale, but the very small “You KNOW you want it !” on the shelving wall in the last shot !! That says it all. You think they would hire a little old lady from NC ?
