Interiors: Jonathan Adler and Simon Doonan Design the Ultimate Modernist Retreat
If Jonathan Adler and Simon Doonan's Shelter Island home looks like one big Jonathan Adler catalog, that's because it is. Well, perhaps more like a living lab where the designer mixes, matches, and tests new products before making them available to eager fans. As for the home itself, the duo referenced the past to create their ideal getaway. "We wanted warm, rustic modernism... It’s a little California, a little bit Japanese, and a little bit Swedish," notes Adler. It's also seriously playful. How could you not have fun in a house like this?!?
