Quirky designer Jonathan Adler's first Brooklyn boutique officially opens tomorrow. When we stopped by yesterday, though, they graciously allowed us to stick our camera in the door for a sneak peek. We didn't notice any big surprises—like Adler's other locations in the West Village, Soho, and the Upper West Side, the place is bright and cheery and happily faux-retro—but we're always amused by Adler's manifesto, which includes such words of wisdom as "Tassels are the earrings of the home."
