Celebrate Pride With Colorful Rooms By Jonathan Rachman

San Francisco-based designer Jonathan Rachman has a sunny, exuberant personality that spills into his work. Born on the island of Sumatra in Indonesia, Jonathan’s work is marked by lively color palettes and luxe materials. “I was pickled and simmered in an environment of pattern on pattern, colorful fabrics, textiles and art and sculpture. Most people are afraid to combine those colors but it comes naturally to me.” The self-taught designer quit the corporate grind in his twenties to start Fleur*t, a flower shop that eventually drew the attention of Madonna, Sarah Jessica Parker and Oprah. Soon, society types came calling to see if he could freshen up their interiors. “I told them I am not a designer, but I think I would be a good fluffer!” He took a chance and his work has since been in Vogue, Elle and Harper’s Bazaar and has won numerous awards. Now living in Carmel County with his husband, Jonathan just released his colorful new book available for pre-order, Currently Classic (Flammarion, 2022).
