Get home and find a place full of all those things you like (and make you smile) is the beginning of the trend Happy Chic opens increasingly more step between designers
It was Jonathan Adler , regarded by critics as a guru in decorating themes, who gave meaning to this proposal until a few years ago seemed far-fetched.
Adler’;s proposal was based on a list of ideas which he published in his manifesto , among which highlighted the make home a happy place.
Visual Humor: decorate and make it fun
Many current projects Happy Chic decor are inspired by the work of Adler, which prioritized much in the use of color as a central element, which breaks with the idea that less is more (minimalism) and recreating environments like the home fun of the popular doll Barbie .
The fidelity to detail is the basis of this proposal. The bright colors, fringes, retro ceramics, prints 6ties and even quirky objects can be given together in one place.
Nathalie Rock , interior and fashion designer, owner ofTangle , has a special liking for this item. We talked with her so that we can illustrate more about this trend and did not hesitate to highlight 3 key Adler style that seem basic

- The colors will never come into conflict: the chromatic scale for one and sees no way to avoid a clash between the wide variety of tones out there.
How is the work of Adler?
Breaking schemes has always been criticized, but,breaking rules set by the beautiful and right is worse. This was the work of Adler, show that calories matter little when it comes to eating something sweet.
In his work stand out much the color supplements and special prints, animal silhouettes are used (I think I saw a special way using giraffes) and vivid color without much their combination.

The Happy Chic goes very well with steel , which would give elegance to your work space, decorative pillows in shades of orange with dark brown sofas.
Contrasts in color, a mirror or ornate box that is the focal point of the environment, always taking care not to over indulge as tastes of customers arriving at an office are varied.
