Textiles, Art History, Gardens, and a Little Mental Traveling with Courtney Barnes 2006-2016


Jonathan Adler Interiors

Many of us are anxious to see Jonathan Adler's design for Trina Turk's first New York boutique, which is now scheduled to open December 6. Also there's excitement about the upcoming January debut of Bravo's series, Top Design, in which Adler will serve as a judge. So while we wait, I thought I'd post this fun little girl's bedroom designed by Adler.

The images above are from Adler's book, My Prescription for Anti-Depressive Living, but this room was also featured in a 2005 Elle Decor spread about Jane Wagman's NY apartment.

Whimsical vintage animal print wallpaper is the major player in the room. It is sweet, bold and very youthful. Alas, everything that makes the wallpaper so cool is what also makes it an extravagance for many budget-minded parents who think about longevity when decorating their children's rooms. But that fabulous lime-green lacquered Queen Anne highboy in the corner is a different matter.

There are many similar looking, well-made but not too valuable, highboys (chests) out there that could be painted any sorbet shade. Years later, the piece could be painted glossy black or Chinese red -- whatever the grown-up girl wants.
