Rhapsody: Kelly Wearstler

by Kelly Wearstler




Design trendsetter Kelly Wearstler shares her inspirations, inviting readers into the creation of her opulent interiors. Celebrated for luxurious interiors that capture the swankiness of old-world Hollywood with a modern pop sensibility, Wearstler is known for her decadent designs of residences and boutique hotels, such as the line of Viceroys and the tastemakers Maison 140 and Avalon. Her ornate interiors are distinctive for layers of bold textures, patterns, and rich colors juxtaposed with lustrous surfaces, adding up to a whimsical and elegant look that has been called "mod baroque." This volume offers a look into Wearstler’s glamorous world, profiling in detail her latest residential designs (previously unpublished) and her sumptuous new hotels, as well as her creative process. The book also follows the designer—known for her striking personal style—behind the scenes to watch her at work, creating sculpture at her metal foundry or shopping at auction houses, to reveal the myriad inspirations that fuel Wearstler’s imagination and her dazzling design work. With beautiful images of many never-before-photographed interiors, Kelly Wearstler: Chromatic Rhapsody is an inspirational look at one of the most irreverent and fascinating designers working today, celebrating the breadth of her creations.

The photographs in this books allow one to focus on all of the amazing details in Kelly Wearstler's designs. It is light on text, so more of an art book than a how-to.
