This holiday season comes at the end of a year of tumult; just the time when it’s helpful to hear from people with conviction about what really matters. Jonathan Adler and Simon Doonan are two design talents—Jonathan with his accessories and home decor company and Simon as the longtime window dresser and creative director at Barneys—who also happen to be a classy couple. And they both write books full of perky advice. Jonathan’s include Happy Chic Accessorizing and My Prescription for Anti-Depressive Living. Simon’s include Wacky Chicks and Gay Men Don't Get Fat. When many Americans are feeling the pinch, what's their advice for this holiday season? Keep it simple. For some ideas, visit Jonathan Adler's LA store at 8125 Melrose Avenue.
