Jonathan Adler has just launched his "Monthly Musings" section on his site, where he discusses "Neo-Neo Classicism" with the necessary amount of humor and wit. He refers to the section as basically, his blog, but there's no way to comment, so it's more like a column at this point. Highlights from his 8-steps to Neo-Neo Classicism: "Rent Caligula: Or, I suppose you could rent Rome, but I'd go with Caligula"; "Give Head: Classical busts are great presents, perfect for tablescaping, and add instant grandeur." We like cheaky. And new vocabulary words. Tablescaping? Clearly, way beyond tablematting.
