Perfect (1)Bring a little joy to your life with Jonathan Adler. Nothing short of fabulous, don’t miss the upbeat and colourful fabrics and zingy trims from New York’s prince of chic in the Kravet showroom.

With hot hues, vibrant pattern and happy mood, this year’s upbeat look is all about modern-retro Palm Springs-style. Blend colours, clash colours, but above all – embrace colour.

Why I love…Palm Springs

palm comp‘Colour is not only a fantastic way to express your personality at home but I think it has the power to alter your mood – from calming and comforting verdigris to energising, upbeat citrus yellow. You needn’t go crazy, though, just one shot of bright colour in an otherwise pared-back room results in an eye-catching statement. We make colour choices all the time during our everyday lives, from the clothes we wear to packaging that catches our eye when shopping for groceries, so just choose what comes naturally and you can’t go wrong
