For fans of Ms. Wearstler


Don't miss this week's article in The New Yorker. 9.14.09 issue.
I've been a fan of Kelly's style for years now. A designer's creative process should always evolve. Kelly's most recent projects have more of a 1970's glam appeal then her previous Hollywood Regency rooms. She must be doing something right, she still has droves of clients. My only fear is that these rooms could feel "dated" quite quickly, but I guess that's irrelevant if you have gobs of cash! I'm looking forward to HUE {due out in November} which allows us a peek inside her latest 11,000 square foot compound.
Happy Saturday

Hey, thanks for the Saturday posting, it is a treat.
Love Ms. Wearstler's design style. It pushes the envelope for us all. I think she has changed the way we look at decorating and how we approach color. Having said that, her style is bound to date itself much in the same way that a Peter Max poster did after the 70's. We will be embracing Mario Buatta (spelling?) again before long.

I agree that such a strong design style could quickly become dated, but she obviously doesn't have budget worries (lol...). But, what I like about her style is how outrageous it is and always with a sense of humor.

I agree Rebecca. She has a fearless sense of style and doesn't take it all too seriously.

I too will be anxiously awaiting her next book. I have also been a huge fan & was a bit dismayed that others do not favor her most recent designs incorporating the 70's appeal.I have read such distaste but yes, she does break barriers. I just wish she'd smile more often..she is one lucky woman. Guess you don't have to when your gorgeous, talented & ultimately wealthy?
