We've been poring over our copy of Jonathan Adler's Fall 2013 catalog, and not only because our favorite designer has some stunning new pieces in his collection. The colorful vignettes and roomscapes are totally delish, and the spaces are staged in a very intriguing setting. We learned from our friends over at Adler's HQ that this took place at none other than the historic Alder Manor in Yonkers, New York.

Set on a 300-foot bluff overlooking the Hudson river, the home was built by William Boyce Thompson in 1912 who named it after the Montana mining camp where he was born. Designed in a "Renaissance Revival" style, it has a grand foyer with a beautiful marble staircase, original walnut wood paneling, parquet floors, intricately carved fireplaces and detailed trompe-l'oeil ceilings. This sprawling manse provides an awesome juxtaposed backdrop to Adler's sassy furniture and accessories with a sixties vibe.
