Book review: Rhapsody by Kelly Wearstler

Design trend setter 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volume offers a look into Wearstler’s glamorous world, profiling in detail her latest residential designs (previously unpublished) and her sumptuous new hotels, as well as her creative process.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. Kelly Wearstler was born in 1967…

Rhapsody by Kelly Wearstler

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)….
