Adler shared the story of his â€œaccidental careerâ€ and the audience had the chance to ask Adler design questions. He said he likes to use the dining room table as a book stand when itâ€™s not in use. He stressed the importance of foyer dÃ©cor. Â Adler swears â€œOrange, ping pongs, hanging chairs and youâ€™ll be happy.â€
I had the opportunity to sit down with the New Jersey native and ask him a few questions.
Katie â€“ Did your motherâ€™s style affect your style and if so in what way? Any items from your childhood that come into your designs?
Jonathan â€“ My momâ€™s style totally affected my style cause sheâ€™s always had a sense of exuberance and she loves color. She still has really groovy taste.
Katie â€“ If you were required to be on a Jersey reality show which could you see yourself on?
Jonathan â€“ First of all it would be a pleasure and I would KILL to be on Jersey Shore. I love those kids. Iâ€™m a big big fan of their work.Â Iâ€™d love to be an honorary guido for a day.
Katie â€“ If you could work with one celebrity that you havenâ€™t worked with before whose house would you love to revamp?
Jonathan â€“ Go hard or go home, Iâ€™d have to go with Madonna.
