Your Home Should Make You Happy!

It seems that Jonathan Adler‘s happy chic design and bold, beautiful colors were being celebrated everywhere this week.  From the introduction of his two new books…

to a lesson on Good Morning Americawith Robin Roberts on how to create more energy in your home (hint: asymmetry is key and pillows are the exclamation points!) …

Before - Symmetry and Matchy-Matchy

to a fabulous (and, in our opinion, the most memorable) little girl’s bedroom Jonathan decorated with Liz Lange for the CFDA showhouse at The Aldyn, where fashion designers collaborated with interior decorators to create a collection of glamorous apartments to inspire us all.

We love the fact that Liz and Jonathan came together once again (he decorated her Westchester home, too!) to create a space that celebrates a child’s innate sense of style and design.  Seeing all these relaxed and colorful interiors remind us that decorating should be filled with fun!

    I LOVE Jonathan’s style…and there is a special place in my heart because my mother is a ceramicist too! It makes me happy that he says to embrace asymmetry because nothing in my house is symmetrical. Have a wonderful weekend.

    Now with interiors like that it would be hard not to choose happy.
    My mom always told me “It is all about choice!” Be happy. Choose happy!

    Throw pillows as exclamation points! How great is that? Just when I think I love this man so much…he goes and says something like that…or designs the most amazing little girls room like that! He exudes so much fun and style, and his interiors and designs are truly a reflection of this!

    What a fantastic round up of J.A. He is the master of upbeat style. Heading to the CFDA next week. Can’t wait to see his handiwork up close! xoxo, Elizabeth

    Terrific happy post – just what the dr. ordered on this dismal day! Love your picks and hadn’t ever seen Marisa’s interview with the designers at that event – fun! And the little girl’s room – I can’t ever show my daughter that – she’ll want to redo her space immediately!

    I can’t wait to get Jonathan’s new books, and that little girl’s room is fabulous! He always reminds me to relax and just fill my home with things I love and not worry so much about making a decorating mistake. Such an inspiration!

    I can’t help thinking, with colors like these, even symmetrical arrangements would have energy!

    Love this post! It makes me smile ear to ear. When you walk into (or in this case look at) an interior and it makes you happy…that’s great design!
