Kelly Wearstler needs no introduction, however, it’s always a pleasure doing it! For Kelly, Design is very intuitive, and an ultimate experience where like she used to say, “kind of falling in love over and over again”. With a multi-disciplinary Interior Design firm founded in the 90s, in Los Angeles, her team creates experiential residential, hospitality, commercial and retail environments, as well as extensive collections of lifestyle product designs. The result? We fall in love a million times!
THE COLOR QUEEN OF THE WEST COAST
Talking about Kelly Wearstler is the same as talking about leaving your comfort zone to make it beautifully cozy! She loves to take risks, especially when designing. As a consequence, Kelly creates stimulating sensory experiences, defying all the color sets and combinations, and also all types of forms and patterns.
“Love color, take risks, stay curious.”, moved by one of her favorite mottos, Kelly Wearstler knows exactly how to take risks, fearless. And every time she does, we fall in love!
Although, she also plays very well with neutral tones and minimalist elements, mainly when designing and accentuating vintage and mid-century inspired environments, at some beachy residences or hotels through the California coast.
Seal Beach Residence, in Orange, is a proper example of what was said before.
For this residence, Kelly selected a natural and organic palette of sandstones, shell pinks, rusts, and moonstone grays, embracing a modernist connection between the sea and the redesigning of this four-level south California coastal escape.
Luxurious, yet breezy and chill. Santa Monica Proper is a beachfront hotel where neutral and warm pastel tones rule. A perfect mood for a beachy – yet elegant – holiday feeling!
The interiors of this residence tell us a magnificent story about the owner’s art collection. Following her signature mix of raw and refined details, Kelly used extravagant, shiny metals in such functional items as the kitchen cabinet blend with playful Italian modern 80s furniture. The ebonized walnut floors are extremely durable and pay homage to the client’s busy lifestyle.
FALLING FOR KELLY’S FURNITURE COLLECTION
Looking for another reason to fall in love today? Kelly Wearstler‘s new furniture collection looks just like her and is absolutely breathtaking!
According to the Designer, each individual piece has its own story to tell and should have its own role in a home, “almost acting like an artwork in a sense.”.
Design is storytelling and Kelly is always concerned with telling impactful stories that are adventurous, soulful and incorporate a mix of materials and influences. As a creator of experiences, Kelly Wearstler wants to evoke strong emotions as she believes that each new project is an invitation to embark on an unexpected and delightful journey, where falling in love happens multiple times!
