On my recent trip to Miami, I searched out the design district but more importantly the Jonathan Adler store! I have been a fan of this designer's colourful, funky style for years. He has a distinctive aesthetic, easily recognisable and definitely fun,fun,fun. . . . . . . In a previous post i talked about some of his books in my design collection. ( My Books). I have always wanted to go to one of his stores so when I realised he had one in Miami I made a beeline for it,dragging my family along for the ride!
I spent a long time looking at all the bright, inspiring pieces. I could have picked up the whole store and brought it home with me but. . . . unfortunately we only had one suitcase! So I found a gorgeous vase perfectly colour co-ordinated just for my house.
As I spent so long browsing the beauty that is Adler. . . .my husband came in and actually found something he liked. . . a new colllar for our dog! Jonathan Adler is a dog owner himself and has created some fun collars, beds and dishes just for the pooches in our lives.
I love Jonathan's philosophies for adding colour and happiness to our homes- Check out out some more examples of his great designs and ideas.
Final note:- Adler's 10 Commandments for a Happy Home. . . .
