Swoon... Jonathan Adler

I've been talking about re-decorating my apartment for quite some time. There were posts about pillows & posts about lamps. But life's been a bit busy and decorating has taken last place to running, eating and working on Erica Sara Designs (launching the website soon- stay tuned...yay!)

Well, I’m finally ready to do it! I just re-covered my lampshade with some awesome orange fabric and received my new chairs for the living room. Time to transform my apartment into a happy, shiny place full of color! I stopped into the local Jonathan Adler store for some cheery inspiration this weekend and fell in love with almost everything. Seriously, is this guy brilliant or what? And I sort of know him. Ok, well… not really but when I worked in the Barneys NY buying office, Simon Doonan, Jonathan’s partner, would walk past my desk sometimes. And once he looked up, smiled and said hello to me. So that means…. ok, well nothing really but makes me feel sort of cool ;)

Anyway, back to the point which is I heart Jonathan Adler. His pottery is tongue-in-cheek brilliant, his colors are beautiful and how he puts it all together totally makes my heart melt. My favorite is his Muse line which incorporates different body parts into vases, lamps and candles. The guy can make a bunch of ceramic boobs look fantastic! Here are the picks I'm considering for my apartment, some of which are a bit out of my budget. But a girl can dream, can’t she?

the x bench in newport grass would be perfect next to my new chairs!

the banana bud vase would look fab on my coffee table

Do you have any Jonathan Adler favorites? Or other favorite home decor designers I should check out for my apartment? Let me know!


  1. I love the salt and pepper shakers. I've been eyeing the elephant ones. I may have to treat myself!

    Check out this esty shop I'm in love with some of the pieces. I want either the 3 urchin bowl set or the scallop nesting bowls.

  2. Don't you wish you had an unlimited amount of money to decorate your apartment??

  3. I wish! Luckily, a little Jonathan Adler goes a long way. I have a feeling the Banana Vase will be my splurge :)
