Smoke 'em if you got 'em

The Wall Street Journal.

Today, I'm loving Don Carney's pipe mural in Jonathan Adler's library. Cartoon-y Victorian goth by way of the 1960s. Everyone's home should have a dash of humor.

The artist.

Carney's drawings are available through Jonathan Adler. Other works by the artist can be found at his company's website, PatchNYC.

I couldn't agree with you more. A dash of humor is a must.
His work is fabulous, graphic, and fun to boot. I am
also loving whatever is going on around the corner in that stairwell. Wallpaper? Tile? Brass railing! The carpet! Ok, where can I see more of that???

Totally agree with a home needing a sense of humor. If it doesn't, then by default I assume neither do the inhabitants, and I wouldn't want to hang there, anyway!

I love his shiz.
A home without humor is like a kiss without a hug, ya'know?
Cheers, Alcira

I agree with NKP, loving the brass railing/blue wallpaper/blue runner-alot! A touch of funny is always needed and the pipe decal most certainly fits the bill.

Big yes to a home needing a sense of humour. Cool artwork too. And an unashamed display of books in that hallway! Bonus points for that.

Life's too short to live with stodgy old stuff....gotta throw in a big dose of humor and whimsy in my estimation!
