My new favorite couple: Simon Doonan and Jonathan Adler

My dad has always loved CBS ‘Sunday Morning’ and I’ve finally admitted to myself that I love it. Today’s episode feature Simon Doonan and Jonathan Adler- two fabulous people who happen to be in love. And are perhaps the coolest couple I’ve ever seen. I love Jonathan’s style and Simon’s, too. And they’re sassy and like the word “moxie” (one of my favorites). Also, Simon just said “I love working in a store. If Virginia Woolf had worked in a store, maybe she wouldn’t have gotten depressed.”

They met on a blind date. ADORABLE. I love Simon because he dresses department store windows. My grandma did that for years and years. And Jonathan is from Jersey and went to Brown and loves bright colors and hippos. And describes his stuff as “very classical but with just a little bit of moxie.”

God I love them. I also love the ‘Sunday Morning” chose to play the clip from ‘Top Design’ where Jonathan tells Preston his flower arrangement “fails kind of on every level.”

Fuck you, Preston.

Advice from Jonathan Adler

Jonathan Adler is pretty hilarious in his new advice column for Huffington Post. See below:


My husband and I have just bought a new apartment on the Upper West Side. When it comes to decorating we have very different ideas. I like color and glamour: he is very beige and boring. How do we get started?



We have a saying in my company: The wife is always right unless the husband is gay. This is an excellent saying and questioning your husband’s sexuality is a great way to get him to shut up.

If you try to incorporate two differing points of view you will end up with an incomprehensible hybrid, leaving you both feeling luke warm.

Assuming that this is not the case and your husband is straight (is he?), you simply have no recourse other than to eliminate him from the process. Take into account some of his functional needs, and then ignore everything else.

Sooner or later hubby will realize that COLOR

is a great ANTI-DEPRESSANT and that GLAMOUR is good. Beige and boring is bad.



p.s. While we’re on the subject, please ask your husband to stop wearing pleated Dockers and to stop attaching his Blackberry to his belt. Thank you.
