Your Home Should Make You Happy

I'm always inspired when I look at anything designed by the talented Jonathan Adler. He is simply amazing. I'm also loving his funny and kitchy manifesto. It's been awhile since I read it and every time I do it makes me smile. Here are some of my favorite parts...

We believe that your home should make you happy.
We believe minimalism is a bummer.
We believe handcrafted tchotchkes are life-enhancing.
We believe celebrities should pay full price.
We believe you should throw out your Blackberry
and go pick some actual blackberries. 
We believe colors can't clash.
We believe our lamps will make you look younger and thinner.
