Good news, interior enthusiasts: whether you’re a fan of Jonathan Adler’s iconic style or just seeking some decorating intel, the famed designer and potter is officially sharing his expertise in a new instructional video series.

“Decorate Like a Designer with Jonathan Adler” launched earlier this month, exclusively on educational streaming platform Wondrium. The virtual program featuring 13 episodes averaging about 30 minutes long and gives viewers of all experience levels full access to Adler’s discerning design eye. Not sure how to define your style or work with color? How about accessorizing or planning a layout? There’s a segment for each of these concerns and more, each packed with Adler’s easily applicable decorating tips.

Personalization is a predominant theme throughout the classes. In the trailer below, Adler himself explains, “I have developed a foolproof formula to communicate perfectly who you are and who you want to be.” Through the series, Adler hopes to help viewers define their style, but the ultimate takeaway may be that good design is attainable for everyone. “I will teach you basic decorating rules — and I will encourage you to break them,” he jokes in the short teaser.

You’ll even get a glimpse of the multidisciplinary creative’s inspirations (art! music! architecture!), plus occasional cameos from his husband Simon Doonan. “Decorate Like a Designer with Jonathan Adler” is essentially the next best thing to a 1:1 design consultation — minus the sky-high cost, of course.

And speaking of, if you don’t have a Wondrium account, you can take advantage of the site’s free 14-day trial. After that, an annual plan starts at $12.50 a month. Either way, have your notepads at the ready because Adler’s (very fun) design school is in session, and you don’t want to miss out.
