Her portfolio is as wonderful and inspiring as wide and extensive, which features from product design (furniture, lighting, fabric & wallpaper and rugs) to the interior design of commercial and residential projects. Today, CovetED Magazine will share with you her latest 3 residential design projects for the most coveted inspiration.
This California style Spanish-style bungalow home is located in the vibrant neighbourhood of West Hollywood and offered and exceptional black canvas for its design. Following the desire of a home that celebrated the client’s personal love of art, colour and sculpture, Kelly Wearstler created within the expansive open layout a self-confident design with an infusion of contemporary and vintage art, furniture and sculpture by established and prominent emerging artists.
The project is inspired by the client’s own paintings and features a bright, playful yet sophisticated colour palette combined with dynamic Memphis art pieces. Walls are appointed with the client’s own paintings. Wearstler brought the client’s artwork to life by translating select paintings into custom silk and woven area rugs and textiles placed throughout the avant-garde home.
Sitting high above Soho’s Cobbled streets, the views you get from this penthouse residence were the starting point for the design of the client’s NYC pied-à-terre. The interior was made with the vision of an open and richly eclectic, jewel-box home. Infused with distinctive materiality, bold colours, custom furnishings, rugs and wallcoverings, and unique finds from all over the world, the residence speaks to the beauty of the unexpected.
At the heart of the house, you can find the main spiral staircase, designed to unite all the three levels and be seen from every floor.
Towering above Austin in one of the city’s tallest buildings, this brand new space brought inside the vibrancy of the surrounding life outdoors. The designer took the black canvas of white walls, concrete floors, boxy rooms and very little character and knocked down walls to create an expansive living area, floored in a cooling combination of different stones laid in geometric pattern that became a seamless extension of the outside views.
Perforated brass doors lead to a vertiginous fireplace wall of negro marquina marble that anchors the living room and features an abstract John Williams painting that was the starting point for the decoration, such as custom velvet and lambskin sofas, geometric hand-painted wallcovering and marble and brass tables. Nearby, zebra-patterned chairs surround a cracked-ice glass dining table and a gleaming black marble and burnished bronze bar.
Mixed metals, leather, silk, parchment and other artisanal elements add luxurious detail and sumptuous texture to the artistic and avant-garde aesthetic that resonates throughout this colourful and expressive home.
