Banish the blues and drown those doldrums, because Happy Chic is coming your way! Famed designer Jonathan Adler is on a mission to infuse style, wit, personality, and of course, COLOR back into our homes. He's fed up with boring, bland boxes, and has written two news books that will give the timid a bit of tenacity and the color-shy a bold, fearless sense of purpose that's sure to totally transform the way you look at your home.
The Happy Chic Series—Jonathan Adler on Happy Chic Accessorizing and Jonathan Adler on Happy Chic Colors hits the shelves in November, and to celebrate, we're inviting readers to enter "The Happiest Place In Your Home" contest! Jonathan Adler is our judge, and it's only open for one week.
No room would be complete without a few choice accessories, so Jonathan Adler on Happy Chic Accessorizing guides readers on how to go chic with humor and style. The book is organized by furniture type (bed, bookshelf, dining table, dresser, table), and page after page reveals gorgeously styled interiors. And once you've sufficiently fallen in love, Jonathan divulges all the tips and tricks you'll need to pull the look off the page and into your own home.
Both books just came out in November, so get them now! And if you're in LA, San Francisco, Seattle, St. Louis, Chicago, and Houston, make sure to catch Jonathan on his book tour!
