Very eccentric for my taste and I like living outside of the creative box.
Buy this one after you have all the others on your list.
The shots with Kelly & her boys seem too staged.
I'm going to return my copy. I don't think I'll ever feel the need to flip through it again.
This book is great as an inspiration piece. I have been overwhelmingly inspired by her work. That said, because Kelly's aesthetic is so layered and textured, it would have been great for her to talk about some of the specific treatments. For example, are all of the wallpapers custom? What was her inspiration for the color and design of the wallpapers? What was the overall feel or direction she was going for when designing her house? How did she select the artwork? Are the furniture pieces high and low or all high end (okay, so they are all high end)? It would be great to get inside her head a little bit.
But it seems like most people will probably never have the opportunity to examine her design process with any degree of satisfaction. And I say that only because Kelly Wearstler has turned into a major brand with product extensions all over the place. Brands don't like to be controversial and they don't like to reveal too much about themselves to keep the mystique and fantasy going. I could be wrong, just a feeling.
I mean, sure Kelly's in this book with her kids, but it is all about creating a fantasy of having it all: personal beauty, stunning interiors, great kids, a house that has movie star lineage, an awesome wardrobe, glamour and above all wealth. I think she's very smart and media savvy to do it; her books are basically brochures she gets paid for creating.Read more ›

I liked this one! :) Between this one and Dominicilium Decoratus, I think is her best. The latest one, (Rhapsody), is so-so. Read morePublished on November 25, 2013 by 4 konijnen
Kelly Wearstler is a design star. But the true star of this book is the photography. The pictures are stunning. Read morePublished on February 17, 2010 by Marcellas Reynolds
