Jonathan Adler

Jonathan Adler is a design god. I recently picked up his book "My Prescription for Anti-Depressive Living" and I cannot believe I did not buy it sooner. His style is so whimsical and colourful and just plain fabulous - it is exactly the style I love. This book has become my new bible. He has brilliant tips throughout the book, for example:

"Lacquer your front door orange.."
"Lemon yellow is the essence of crispness and should not be overlooked."
"Start a collection: ceramic animals, mannequin heads, other people's high school yearbooks."
"Buy rich ladies' scarves and make them into pillows."
"Put regal furniture in your bathroom. Stack your towels on a Louis chair upholstered in Pucci terrycloth, even if your bathroom is tiny."

The man is a genius. If you don't own that book, go out and buy it.

I totally agree! Jonathan Adler is a fairy tale genious. His book is like walking into a carnival and purchasing a huge tree of cotton candy....just delicious.

So, did you purposefully leave out the Michael Jackson bust? Hmmm? I've been meaning to publish it for a week now and should get to it. Isn't that first room just about perfect? That mirror should belong to ME.

Could somebody scan a pic from Antidepressive Living for me?? I LOVE JA and I can't figure out how to save a pic from his website because it's all 'flash player'.
