The New Yorker dubbed her “the presiding grande dame of West Coast interior design,” but Kelly Wearstler is way more rock star than a dame.

Kelly Wearstler doesn't make apologies for her interiors. She make bold and confident statements through her design. Her interiors make you take notice. 

She is not only an author, but a blogger, fashion designer, interior designer and mother of two boys. This LA designer has built an empire that extends across her interiors, furnishing collections, lines of fashion and accessories, books, and television appearances where she is always dressed to impress. “What we’re really creating,” she has said when interviewed by AD magazine, “is the world of.... ” That world of course, is that of Kelly Wearstler. 

As an award winning designer, Kelly was named a leader of style in 2010 by Town & Country; she was honored as one of House Beautiful's best designers; she was also named one of the design world's top tastemakers by House & Garden; and member of the elite 'Design 100' by Time Style & Design; and Modern Bride designated Kelly as one of the top 25 trendsetters of the year.

Each one of her designs is unique. And while she is often associated with the revamped Hollywood Regency style, Kelly seems to have surpassed that trend with a stronger look, which has become her signature style.  Focusing more on graphic floor patterns, heavy metal detailing and French and Italian furniture from the late 20th century, which she mixes with her own designs and the occasional classical piece. 

Take a look at some of Kelly Wearstler's dazzling rooms that invoke days gone by, with a modern twist and without doubt Kelly's signature style stamp.

Kelly Wearstler has built a profile for herself as colourful as those of her high profile celebrity clients, Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale, among others. Over the past decade, her take on the Hollywood Regency style has created a list of imitators, who gravitate to her  for inspiration on her use of graphic patterns, luxe textures, and eye-popping hues. 

Wearstler has said 'People love it or they don't quite get it'. 

I love it. There are only certain people who can create these bold and brave interiors. Kelly Wearstler is without doubt the Queen of Hollywood Regency and I plan to take inspiration from her designs into my perfect dream house.
