Stunning rooms & products.
Aged glass mirrors provide a glamorous backdrop for a wobbly striped sideboard. The floors, artwork and mirrors all feature stripe motifs, too. Wearstler’s classic metallic hits liven up the credenza’s accessories and chair legs.
A black frame defines the curvaceous fuchsia upholstered chairs, and dark mouldings provide additional contrast. A unique ceiling and wall treatment draws eyes upwards.
Wearstler mixes metals on these modern models. Pointed gems form a sassy mohawk, elongated studs depict eyebrows, and button-like accents create piercing eyes.
A gold quatrefoil-shaped coffee table adds an ultra-glam touch to this exquisite Wearstler project. The diamond rug pattern coordinates with the unusual fireplace grate and artwork.
Wearstler’s ceramic Ball vase glazed with 22 karat gold looks great with fresh blooms or on its own. The stunning brass Kaleidoscope (top) and Knot (bottom) add instant glamour to a room.
Black and grey painterly strokes and splatters create interest in this minimally furnished guest bedroom. Wearstler’s effective colour palette of black, white and gold emanates luxury at its finest.
A fluted edge means this brass dish looks good filled and empty. Below, a 22 karat gold glaze turns a ceramic bowl into an eye-catching objet. Subtle stripes add detail. Splashes of gold form an artist-inspired look on the ivory ceramic.
“I love that this space feels really timeless — it can be there for another 15 to 20 years,” says Wearstler. “The iconic chairs, like those in the bar, can be turned to the profile for privacy. And I love the colour—it’s neutral but dynamic and graphic.”
“White lacquer, black-ebony trim and gold-leaf detail all contribute to a calming yet dynamic space here,” Wearstler explains. “The three chairs actually sit opposite a sofa, to add to that residential feel.”
“Having the new and the old together adds soul,” says Wearstler. “In this space, the coffee table, the two white slipper chairs and the lamps are vintage, and everything else is new.”
“This was the existing kitchen inside this little apartment,” Wearstler explains. “I put glass-door fronts on the upper cabinets and put mirror at the back of them to highlight the china. That’s the existing tile floor, too. To warm up the space, I added the window treatment, the oversized light fixture and blue fabric.”
“This bedding was inspired by an old-fashioned dress that I got from the ’60s,” says Wearstler. “It’s kind of like an abstract painting, but the soft and organic texture works in either a modern or traditional environment.”
“Everyone likes blue,” exclaims Wearstler. “These have a wide range of pattern and texture, so they appeal to everyone.”
“This room is covered in fabric—even the walls are wallpapered in fabric,” Wearstler explains. “It’s so important to have everything organized, such as a beautiful marble vase with pencils, or a gold box for paper clips.”
“This room needed to feel like you’re in Miami, but still feel urban,” says Wearstler. “The amazing painting is done by de Gournay, out of London, who do hand-painted murals. It adds such a dynamic touch to the room. The light in the space feels beach-y, but still city.”
“This is a space that you walk through, so it needs to feel residential but still feel like the restaurant and the hotel,” Wearstler says. Symmetry keeps the space classic.
“This oval room is such a sexy shape,” exclaims Wearstler. “It’s in the heart of the house and has windows on both sides. The yellow is refreshing, cosy and makes you look good—and everyone wants to look good at a dinner party!”
"This room shows you how different patterns and textures can come together," says Wearstler. "The sofa is velvet, the pillows are a mix and the silver kaleidoscope is mixed with brass dishes. People shouldn't be afraid to mix metals.
“This is one of our Bergdorf Goodman accessories,” Wearstler says. “We do a lot of boxes, because people want functional accessories—this would be beautiful in a bathroom to hold cotton balls, for example.”
“The beautiful texture really works here,” says Wearstler. “With a gold table setting, it can go casual or fancy.”
Kelly Wearstler’s Pickard china collection features a range of styles and patterns ranging from organic to graphic, traditional to modern and delicate to bold. Shades of charcoal gray, sand, ivory, metallic gold and platinum make these suitable for fine dining or a casual brunch.
“This library is off of the bedroom of a studio executive who works a lot,” explains Wearstler. “After she puts the kids to bed, she still wants to be close to husband, so this is her home office. It’s very warm and dynamic, and the red signifies power.”
This builds on the success of Wearstler’s first monograph, Modern Glamour, and includes recent, unpublished projects, including her home in Beverly Hills, celebrity residential projects and some of her latest hotel projects.
