jonathan adler

jonathan adler is a talented designer.
he also has an extraordinary line of furniture and accessories.
i wouldn’t mind having a few of these items adorning my home.

unfortunately adler’s products are quite expensive.
but if you are willing to spend the money, i would say his designs are worth it.
i love this simple geometric rug by jonathan adler (left).

i would say this rug from is a worthy substitute (right).
it may not be a jonathan adler original but it will give the same clean look for a fraction of the price.


the most simple way to dramatically change a space is color.
paint, wall paper, or accent pillows can quickly bring life to a room.

making colorful spaces flow room to room can be a challenge.
consistency in trim, baseboards, flooring, and lighting will unify the home but keep each individual space unique.

good design

good design does not always come with a big price tag.
until you are ready to invest in high end furniture and accessories, these look-a-likes will do the trick.

i hope to have the arco lamp join my home one day!

fresh look

this living room is perfect for a summer day.

adding new pillows, throws, and fresh flowers is the perfect way to brighten up your home for summer.
