No matter where you are at with your home décor—whether you have just moved into your first apartment, you are still slugging it out as a renter, or you have finally managed to buy your own place—we can guarantee you that Jonathan Adler’s new book, 100 Ways to Happy Chic Your Life, is going to be your new bible.
The book is a guide to living happily and living stylishly, or so says the tagline. Inside, you will find full-color spreads and fun tips on how to be the hostess with the mostess, how to be a fabulous friends, how to vacation, how to decorate your home, how to properly entertain guests, and so on. But what makes this book different—and the reason it will turn into your guidebook—is the way Adler dispenses his advice. Such gems include: “Bestow a moniker on your domicile to give the impression that it’s been in the family for decades, even if you moved in last week.”
When everything is as quirky and charming as that, we’re sold. 100 Ways to Happy Chic Your Life ($25) is available now at Amazon.com.
