Accessorizing with Jonathan Adler

Jonathan Adler paid a visit to the Princeton Public Library recently to promote his new book Jonathan Adler on Happy Chic Accessorizing.

 

Adler shared the story of his “accidental career” and the audience had the chance to ask Adler design questions. He said he likes to use the dining room table as a book stand when it’s not in use. He stressed the importance of foyer décor.  Adler swears “Orange, ping pongs, hanging chairs and you’ll be happy.”

I had the opportunity to sit down with the New Jersey native and ask him a few questions.

Katie – Did your mother’s style affect your style and if so in what way? Any items from your childhood that come into your designs?

Jonathan – My mom’s style totally affected my style cause she’s always had a sense of exuberance and she loves color. She still has really groovy taste.

Katie – If you were required to be on a Jersey reality show which could you see yourself on?

Jonathan – First of all it would be a pleasure and I would KILL to be on Jersey Shore. I love those kids. I’m a big big fan of their work.  I’d love to be an honorary guido for a day.

Katie – If you could work with one celebrity that you haven’t worked with before whose house would you love to revamp?

Jonathan – Go hard or go home, I’d have to go with Madonna.
