Today I went into mommom’s back room, which her ongoing design project,
and holy Jonathan Adler.
Wasn’t it just yesterday that I was going gaga for his new spring catalog!?
And then, I mosey on in, like it ain’t no thing, to get some stickers from the play area in the corner and this. I find this:
And I was like “Hold the phone, Mommom. There are pillows, and candles and a red chair, oh my!”
And she told me that she went to his store and bought the things that I have been dying over. Just like that. That’s what’s so awesome about being a Mommom. You can do things like that.
And so, her back room just got majorly Adlered, which is a major upgrade. And I plan to sit on and stare at that chair/pillow combination as much as possible. Which for great-grandparents is a win for all!
I’ve taken great pleasure in helping to re-do my Mommom’s back room. Not only did it give me her remnants to turn into my new bedroom area rug, but it’s so fun watching the room come together in such a chic and modern way.
She just added two more pillows to the one we bought together,
by my main man Jonathan Adler, and they rock the couch.
and are reversible!And while in the back room, Mommom had me try on some of her most prized vintage pieces. We are talking 70s Bill Blass and such.
And I have to say, I had a ball playing dress-up. But getting Mommom to figure out how to work my iPhone camera? Not so easy….there is one clear picture in the bunch, and it was taken by my not-quite-4 year old. While this site is more about home design, it doesn’t hurt to have a little fashion design in here every once in awhile, right? Especially when we are talking gold lace and sashes and shoulder pads and mink.
The photo below is what my mom and aunt used to call the Princess Dress and is Bill Blass original. And my daughter took this photo.
So, more fun in the back room was had. Design is design is a design. Said Gertrude Stein. In her own way.
