J’adore Jonathan Adler


So WOW, I'm practically speechless. Being the design lover that I am, I have to say that today has been without-a-doubt one of the coolest days of my career, if not my entire life. I recently entered Jonathan Adler's Happy Chic Home Contest, by sending in photos of my teeny New York apartment along with a written description of how my decor is inspired by Jonathan. Little did I know that Jonathan Adler himself would post a writeup about my apartment on his personal blog!!! Having the opportunity to get design feedback from somebody that I have looked up to and idolized for years is beyond surreal and far better than anything I could ever win. Thank you Jonathan and thank you PointClickHome for hosting such an inspiring contest. For those of you who also adore Mr. JA, there's still time to enter by clicking here ;)

When you first posted the pictures of your place, I felt the exact same way as JA, but with none so elegant and exact words to describe it! Bravo. Now are you available to help others? Congrats!

Thanks everybody! I appreciate all your kind comments :) And Kay in LA, it's actually a dream of mine to design interiors one day!! I do friends apts often but I do them on shoestring budgets (we're talking $200 here!) so I've never had the chance to go out and select cool pieces and truly create a space but I'd LOVE to. Send along pics of your place and I can email you some suggestions!

I just clicked over to look for your email. I wanted to ask you it was your home on their site, since it doesn't mention names. Looks great!

Absolutely fabulous Michelle ! I am so proud of you and I was going to ask - WHEN ARE YOU GOING TO TAKE UP INTERIOR DESIGN GIRL???

You'd be utterly fabulous.

Michelle, as you can tell, none of us are surprised! You've got the eye. I'm thrilled for you!

Congratulations Michelle! How wonderful to have your talent recognized by J Adler himself. You have great style, and a home with such panache. It is truly you and truly chic.

MABELLE said...

As usual, I'm COMPLETELY blown away by your kind comments! Thank you so much everybody!! I love having this network of support :)

And as for taking up interior design, I WOULD LOVE TO!! Right now I'm so consumed by all things Rubie that I don't have the time for it, but ideally one day I want to settle down in some cute town, have an RG store where I sell my products mixed with vintage home goods and new eco friendly pieces, and design interiors on the side :) So I guess we'll see! I'm always open to projects now though, so let me know if you need any help!

Thanks again!!
Xo MA.

It's so cute! would love to see more. You should post pics of your apt with description, as you submitted them for the contest :)

lane said...

Congrats girl! You must be so excited. I know who I'm calling to help me decorate when I move to the city :)

I knew he would love it! It's happy and chic just like you!!!

andrea of ffft said...

How freakin' cool is that?!? I would LOVE it if you posted your apartment with some write up of your own. I live in a TEENY WEENY space and I love it, but I am constantly looking for ways to keep up with it. I think it is funny though that in the other post of your former boss's apartment she has the same EXPEDIT bookshelf and really similar wall 'gathering' as mine. I will post my pics if you post yours! LOL...

You really do have the talent to be doing this and if you continue with your desire to decorate sustainably but chic, you could definitely find your niche market. Looks like you have the next decade or so pretty much lined up for yourself! :)

Well done!

MABELLE said...

Thanks again everybody! Your constant support is amazing and a bit overwhelming at times. (But in the best of ways:)

As for posting more pics of my apartment, I'm actually participating in the Blogger's Home Tour on The Love List http://www.thelovelist.net/ so be on the lookout for some fun postings from Jessica in the near future!

Suzy said...
