Have it: Jonathan Adler's book

I just love Jonathan Adler's design voice that inspires us to have "happy" interiors, so I added his book -- My Prescription for Anti-Depressive Living. --to my design library: Check it out.

Johnathan Adler from his website:

If you don’t have one, get one. Nothing inspires me more than when someone tells me I can’t do something. Get up close and personal with somebody who is wildly unsupportive. My mother is the greatest person on earth and I absolutely love her. Truly. But, she is pathologically risk-averse and whenever I tell her about some new venture I’m embarking on I know that if she screeches that it’s a terrible idea and that I’ve lost my mind then it’s a sure-fire smash. If she says nay, I say yay.


And check out St. Louis AT HOME magazine to learn how Jonathan Adler inspired local St. Louis couple to decorate their home in the "happy chic" style.

See more design voices, check out my design library found in the column on the left.

I love this. Learning to say 'no' to the people who are risk-averse. Great addition to your library. And a perfect tie-in to Julie and Julia - Julie Powell's mother said no to her -- and look what happened. Mothers saying no can knock us down to the point that we never get up. But if we do get up, we come up fighting.
