Kelly Wearstler

Unless you’re a design aficionado, a Hollywood insider, or a long-time reader of Playboy, chances are you’ve never heard of Kelly Wearstler, the centerfold model turned interior designer who has placed her undeniable style on the swankiest hotels and homes from L.A. to Anguilla.

I first found out about Kelly when I was invited to join 1stdibs as one of their antique dealers. As a featured designer on 1stdibs, she has gained a lot of exposure lately, including catching the attention of Oprah and People Magazine and gracing the cover of our beloved and very much missed, Domino Magazine. Last year, the New Yorker ran a 4,000-word profile about Wearstler, dubbing her the “presiding grand dame of West Coast interior design.”

There’s nothing subtle about Wearstler’s designs. You either love it or not. They’re bright. They’re bold. They’re daring. They’re not to be ignored. Personally, I admire them and find them to be works of arts and inspiring, especially when combined with antique elements (which she does).

But you be the judge.

I just adore the combination of the modern abstract wall painting with the elaborate architectural elegance of the winding staircase.

The chandelier above, could very well be one of my very own... below (available on my 1stdibs store and New Orleans address).

  2. Love Kelly's "take no prisoners" approach to color and combining that which appeals to her. It really works sometimes... other times I think for me it is over the top.
