You can imagine my surprise when I walked by with my kids and immediately spotted the colorful interior.
Jonathan Adler speaks my language!
Elegant yet fun
Perfect dose of pattern
Feminine and flirty
Kid-size sofa with loads of style
A little over the top
for a girl’s bedroom, but oh so fun
You’ll want more than just one
See you again soon!
I should mention that the salespeople were absolutely the best, ever so helpful and friendly, allowing me to take as many photographs as I wanted. Their friendliness made my store experience a pleasant one. I would expect no less from a store named after a man whose manifesto says: "I believe that your home should make you happy."
These photos are really just a taste of the many Jonathan Adler products available, but I must confess that my favorite piece of Jonathan Adler is his first book, "My Prescription for Anti-Depressive Living." Obviously not a tome for the unhappy, but a guide for creating a home that makes you happy. He has two other books out, which I hope to get my hands on soon.
The Jonathan Adler store in Fashion Island is one of twelve in the United States. It's at 579 Newport Center Drive, Newport Beach, Calif. (949) 759-0017.
I hope these glimpses into Jonathan Adler's world brightened your weekend.
