My First Guest Blog

Hi all! It's Mari from Design Shuffle a terrific social networking site for interior designers, professionals and design enthusiasts, to upload their work and receive lots of exposure. As a writer for Design Shuffle, I get to visit great interior design and decorating blogs like Mrs. Peabod to share some of my favorite spaces.

In today's guest post we focus on happy chic, the style brought to life by designer Jonathan Adler. Two quotes from the Jonathan Adler Manifesto (you'll find it on his website) seem to sum up happy chic. On color, "We believe colors can't clash." and this confident point of view, "We believe our designs are award winning even though they've never actually won any." Apply those two happy chic principles to your rooms and you can't go wrong. Enjoy!

No worries about color clashes here in one Jonathan Adler designed living room - just two pops of pink, one turquoise pillow, a small dash of yellow artwork and a little zebra on the side.

Here, happy chic is a perfect mix of furniture styles and color atop a black and white chevron rug in this bright dining room.

This living room makes us smile, so happy and so chic. It received supremely honorable mention in the Happy Chic Homes Contest.

What could say happy chic better than orange in a bathroom. This one is perfect, all white tile background and modern vibe.

Meet my absolute favorite happy chic room. Dressed in pure white, all this living space needs a few touches of turquoise and black and white pattern. And, of course, tall ceramic dogs to flank the fireplace.

Another honorable mention from the Happy Chic Home Contest, this room is created around an inherited mid-century modern chair.

Now for the first prize winner of the happy chic contest - filled with vibrant green and the homeowner's personality. You'll notice it also seems to have this feline's wholehearted approval. Your living room ideas can be inspired by nearly anything!

We leave you with a view of the outdoor living space designed by Jonathan Adler for his Barbie Malibu Dream House. Now that's one gorgeous backyard filled with happy chic decorating ideas!

Chic is what you make of it. Design Shuffle is filled with fantastic chic inspiration by the best interior designers and many others!
