When I was on Newbury St. for my haircut yesterday, I happened to park right outside of the Jonathan Adler store. And since I had the full $2 on the meter, I figured I might as well drop in to gawk at all the fun things I can't afford.

I developed a minor crush on a tres adorable little squirrel. Alas, it was pretty spendy, so my love was unrequited.
I settled instead for some bright and cheerful tea towels. Aren't they stunning in their new home?
Jonathan Adler is one of those designers whose aesthetic is so definite that it doesn't go with everyone's style or taste. While I love Adler's whimsy and exuberance, I don't think my husband would be so psyched about "love/hate" apothecary jars or a shoe candleholder (though he might have a Jim and Pam lovefest with this pillow). So, in the interest of family harmony, I won't be Adlerizing our home anytime soon. But a pop of whimsy in the kitchen is ok, right?
Do you and your spouse or partner share similar aesthetics? How do you compromise on home decor?
