Design Advice From Jonathan Adler

I adore everything Jonathan Adler.

Like this glam brass orb:

Unknown-4

 

I’m culling these tips from a recent interview with Mr. Adler, but they’re worth passing on.

First up: How to add glitz at home

I think a room is like an outfit. It all needs a bit of gold to crank up the glamour. A little glitz is good for the soul.

On candlelight:

Candlelight is every fun-lover’s best friend. It makes everything look a little more glamorous than they really might be. You don’t need to have scented candles going all the time, but you do need to entertain with an abundance of candles.

Regarding home as sanctuary:

Every time you open your front door, you should breathe a sigh of relief. It should feel like you feel when you hear your favorite song on the radio.

I love you, Jonathan Adler!

P.S. Adler’s spouse, Simon Noonan, wrote a best-selling book called “Eccentric Glamour.” The title alone makes me want to buy it.
