Trinidad James meets Jonathan Adler?

If 2 guys were ever further apart on the spectrum of dude-ism, Trinidad James and Jonathan Adler are the extremes.

  1. Trinidad James spits colorful rhymes, while Jonathan Adler designs colorful furnishings.
  2. Trinidad calls the mean streets of ATL home, while Jonathan prefers the the posh avenues of the Big Apple.
  3. Trinidad was discovered on Youtube, while Jonathan launched at Barneys.
  4. Jonathan uses pops of color, while Trinidad pops a Molly- he sweatin, WHEW!!

But there is one thing that connects their two worlds…and it’s All Gold Everything.  Trinidad James channels the spirit of Jonathan Adler in his song as he professes his love of ”Gold all in my chain, Gold all in my ring, Gold all in my watch – Don’t believe me jus’ watch”.  Jonathan appreciates the sheen of gold and bronze when sprinkled on anything from accessories to tables to wallpaper.

The Midas Touch has made a resurgence in the world of design.  Metallics no longer spook homeowners with the spirit of antiquated granny dens but are the forbearers of good style to come.  Now we are talking the subtlety of mom’s gold Chanel earrings, not the gaudiness of Trump Tower so don’t over do it.  Check out some of Jonathan’s blinged out creations:
