Love At First Sight

By Myka

I’ve always been attracted to this irreverent, seventies throwback style. Orange and brown as a color scheme? Yes please! Turquoise ceramic desk lighters? Of course. My home is the biggest reflection of my style – vintage and comfortable, eclectic and layered. I am happiest at home, rearranging my books and reevaluating the layout of a room. Tearing pictures out of magazines and adding them to my home folder. Yes, I have a home folder – it’s a 3 ring binder separated into sections titled Lighting, Kitchen, Flooring, Bedroom, Bathroom, Vignettes, etc.

While I love to buy vintage sometimes it’s hard to find what I want. Not to mention that somethings just don’t really stand the test of time – like pillows. Or bedding. Barf.

Enter Jonathan Adler. I have been a JA fan since 1996, before he even had a shop and was just this cool modern pottery line being sold at Barney’s. When he opened shop in Soho and expanded his line to included furniture, lighting and bedding no one was happier than me. He designed The Parker Palm Springs which quickly became a Highbrow Hippie favorite place to vacation. You know we love Palm Springs. He even inspired us to have a manifesto. Check out his here.

I’m obsessed with so many things…his use of color, the constant use of gold and brass, the new catalog, the tile walls in his house…the fact that he calls himself the 24 hour pot dealer. Hilarious. If you aren’t familiar check it out. I’m sure you’ll find something you love.

Myka has always been enamored with beautiful things and making things beautiful. It’s what led her to Paris to study at Parsons School of Design, and subsequently landed her in New York. The desire to move beyond clothing resulted in working as a trend forecaster and stylist – curating trends and creating beautiful environments. Myka has lived in New York, Paris, Munich and Italy, tried her hand at furniture design and worked as an interior stylist and creative consultant and most recently a certified yoga instructor. A serial entrepreneur, her journey has led her to explore and discover different parts of herself. Eventually she landed in Europe where she spent several years before returning to her hometown of Atlanta where she opened WAX, Atlanta’s first waxing only studio and then BUFF, Atlanta’s first natural nail bar. She now resides in Venice, CA with her son and their rescue dog Piper.
