Kelly Wearstler, the California-based interior designer who practically invented the term “maximalism”, have launched her fourth book “Rhapsody” on October 23, 2012

Rhapsody compiles some of Wearstler’s never-before-photographed projects and it offers a look into her glamorous world, profiling in detail her latest residential designs, including sumptuous new hotels along with her creative process.

The tome takes you through her creative process, bursting with her glamorous and energetic vignettes, all using her signature bold color, texture, and mix of both vintage and new. Throughout the pages, she dissects certain rooms and explains the importance of juxtaposing rawness and refinement to get her distinctive look.

Here, the idea of “mod baroque” might mean silver studded walls paired with a tiger-print sofa, or three square brass tables arranged like blocks into a jagged, uneven dining table, or a floor-to-ceiling ceramic fireplace that offsets ’70s-style wood paneling: anything, really, that ensures your eye is “captivated by every view, whether by a dominating architectural feature or a movable tablescape,” Wearstler writes in the book.

Whether decorating a boutique hotel, restaurant, or home, Kelly Wearstler rarely designs with a “less is more” approach. Everything the designer-turned-fashion muse touches seems to turn to gold (sometimes quite literally, given her opulent interiors).
