If you’re as into Interior Design as I am, you probably already know who Jonathan Adler is. I happen to really appreciate his clean lines and quasi mod gestalt, it’s just his PRICES I can’t deal with. Using his designs as a stylistic springboard, I’ll begin this blog by showing you how to cop his trademark aesthetic without breaking the bank…

Let’s start here in the lounge of the Parker Hotel (Palm Springs, CA) designed by Adler.
