On The Rocks

As springtime comes, it’s time to start thinking about all the parties you’ll be throwing and the booze you’ll be consuming. We’re thinking frozen margaritas with no salt, please.  Grab a pack of 20 Jonathan Adler cocktail napkins — they come in pink for  margaritas, blue for martinis and green for scotch — and you’ll be the hostess with the mostest all summer long. [$5, Jonathan Adler]

Don’t You Dare Decorate Alone

Home decorating is overwhelming, even for folks who aren’t colorblind. But housewares designer Jonathan Adler breaks it down for those of us with Kelly Wearstler dreams on an Ikea budget. In his book Jonathan Adler on Happy Chic Accessorizing, he tells you how to arrange everything from pillowcases to coffee tables, and shares his favorite paint chips and fabric swatches. Naturally, there are tons of photos of rooms decorated in his quirky, colorful style and his dog, Liberace, is the pup on the cover! Follow Adler’s motto, “95% chic + 5% happy,” and I bet you’ll love your home so much you’ll never want to leave.

Meet My New Roommates, Simon Doonan And Jonathan Adler!

Don’t be jealous or anything, but I’m totally moving in with style writer/creative director for Barney’s Simon Doonan and designer Jonathan Adler, into their New York City apartment. They don’t know it yet, but we need to be roommates. The Hermés orange wallpaper! The ping-pong table! The life-sized poodle sculpture! I’ll sleep on top of that giant ceramic rhino if I have to, dammit.

The mod black and white stripes will coordinate with just about any decor, and the canisters’ playful design screams HAPPY! The only word of caution: Be careful what you store in them because the cheeky labels will make friends curious enough to snoop. [$28 - $135, Barbie Collector] Keep reading »

Barbie Dream House Gets A Birthday Makeover

Your dream of walking through Barbie’s Dream House might actually turn into a reality. As we all know, Barbie is turning 50 this year and to celebrate her birthday, Mattel is planning a big party. And none other than “Top Design” judge and interior designer extraordinaire, Jonathan Adler, is leading the party planning committee. He is giving Barbie’s Malibu Dream House a major makeover. Okay, not Barbie’s Dream House, but an actual Malibu beach house. The beach house is getting redesigned to celebrate Barbie’s big 5-0. Adler is designing a Barbie-worthy bedroom, living room and closet for the beach house that will host the doll’s birthday party on March 9. I’m so jealous. Her closet is going to be insanely big to fit all those clothes. And for the inner child inside of all of us, Adler is launching a collection, “Jonathan Adler Loves Barbie,” this fall. The set will include pottery, pillows, a collectible doll and more, and will be available online and in stores. Even at 50, that bitch lives an amazing life. [Moresay.com]
