This custom, Jackson Pollack inspired wallpaper was created by Porter Teleo for Kelly. “I designed it to look like art work,” she explains. “Between the graphic and linear carpet runner and the organic wall covering, the balance is really cool.”
“The chair is early-19th century, the busts are from a stage set and the two French commodes are from the ’30s,” says Kelly. “The green and black marble floor ties it all together.”
“This was an all-new kitchen,” Kelly explains.
“It comes off of the family room, so it needed to feel pretty and residential. I worked with a cabinet guy to create the whole kitchen in stainless steel with brass detailing, including covered refrigerator and freezer doors.”
“I think this room shows that you can mix different types of chairs and different scales — everything doesn’t need to be upholstered,” says Kelly. “It also proves that all neutral doesn’t have to be boring.”
Colours and textures collide in this unique space. “This is the one room my husband doesn’t like,” Kelly admits. “But I love the big head on the table, and the vintage sofas. I had them redone in wisteria leather — they look like shells.”
All of the furniture is vintage, which just takes the design to another level,” Kelly says. “The only thing new is the mirrored cabinet on the far wall, which opens up the whole room.”
“I love masculine things,” says Kelly. “This room is just so warm and cosy.”
“This bathroom looks vintage, but it’s all brand new,” says Kelly. “The Shagreen cabinetry, sexy lighting and a skylight make it such a warm space — I love being in there.”
“I love the detailing of the marble columns by the bath,” Kelly says. “Also, the marble work is so organic, yet very sophisticated.”
“I found the Italian 1950s chairs and had them redone in ruched leather,” explains Kelly.
“As for the yellow, it’s a very bright room that needed a sunny colour.”
“This is my son, Elliott’s room,” Kelly says. “The wallpaper is textured like crocodile, so it’s playful but sophisticated. The commodes also have snakes as handles.”
