Call it serendipity but just as I’m ready to write today’s post I receive an email from Jonathan Adler’s PR Director Deb Willis letting us in on Jonathan’s latest addition to his website, his monthly musings. This month he waxes lyrical on his Neo-Neo-Classicism range and mentions the Grand Tour. Grand tour! Here’s the serendipity….
Today’s post is an OMG gobstopper. Look at this outrageous one bedroom (yes one bedroom!) London apartment. Well-to-do young men of the 18th and 19th century travelled Europe improving their classical education and bringing home a few well chosen (dare I say pilfered) souvenirs. Think Elgin Marbles. What I’d really like to know is if this is the owner’s collection or if they inherited it from their Europe trotting ancestor? My goodness I hope they have a cleaning lady! Although I could not live like this I secretly envy them this amazing collection and the passion needed to live with it. Perhaps I’ll take just a soupçon of Jonathan Adler’s pieces instead!
