LA Style Icon: Kelly Wearstler

With a completely unique style that juxtaposes refinement with rawness and combines bold color with whimsy, sophistication and glamour, multi-talented LA designer Kelly Wearstler has revolutionized the look and feel of modern American design. Kelly?s sense of design is reminiscent of the cool modern style of famed British decorator David Hicks, but on steroids-using scale, pattern and an unexpected mix of objects with unconventional ease. Wearstler?s career took flight when she infused Beverly Hills? Avalon hotel with the unexpected, fearless aesthetic that has now become her signature. Old Hollywood, mid-century furniture, and a flair for the unexpected have become the hallmarks of her design. An avid fashion aficionado who has been collecting vintage pieces since childhood, Kelly recently debuted a collection of ready-to-wear, jewelry, furniture, home accessories and objects d'art based on the vibrancy of her interiors, while simultaneously opening a 2,400-square-foot flagship boutique on Melrose Avenue in Los Angeles. Kelly is one of L-atitude's favorite fashion icons, design stars, surfers, and moms who still believes inspiration exists everywhere from hardware store shelves to the beaches of Malibu.
