I’ve always admired Jonathan Adler‘s bold and playful style, so I was eager to get a glimpse into his New York City apartment for a taste of how he lives at home. Although he has quite a cohesive look, it’s always interesting to see how the designer behind an iconic brand chooses to style their personal domain. As his partner, Simon Doonan, explores in this recent post on Jonathan’s blog, their apartment has been a laboratory for testing out new pieces and playing with new arrangements and styling. It’s evident that Jonathan brings a personal dose of creativity to his home that can be found in his products, as the details in his apartment and the original art collection illustrate the funky nature to his vision that set the foundation for his distinctive aesthetic. Click through to see more of his home, plus a fun interview from The Selby.

With white walls and floors, Jonathan’s bright color palette makes quite a splash, especially this stunning turquoise that radiates from the center of the painting to the chair cushions. The graphic nature of this painting also parallels the rug beautifully and sets a stark contrast to the natural detail of the cocktail table base.

Jonathan doesn’t shy away from complementary colors, and masterfully mixes cobalt blue, citron, teal, and green in this living room. An eclectic assortment of objects top the large marble coffee table, and a fun mix of colors adds interest to the sofa cushions. A graphic rug sets the foundation for this room as well. Make sure to check out this fun visual interview conducted by The Selby – I love Jonathan’s top 6 concepts for interior design!

It’s interesting how much work and home life intersect when it comes to furniture and decor design. Jonathan’s world is certainly saturated with his work, but it seems he has created a wonderfully creative and authentic atmosphere at home.
