Editorial Reviews

Review

"In her new book, 'Hue,' Los Angeles interior designer Kelly Wearstler doesn't shy away from bold decor. Try her tips to give your home a color boost." —Family Circle

"Wearstler's gotten credit for aiding the return of the Hollywood Regency style and that of the swinging seventies and eighties, and she's acquired a reputation for boldly going where other designers don't in her use of color, texture and pattern and in her juxtaposition of high and low, classic and modern—a Roman bust, for instance, impudently paired with a white shag rug." —Town & Country Magazine

"In her new book, 'Hue,' from AMMO Books, Hollywood glamour, neoclassical ornamentation, pattern and texture prove to be Wearstler signatures, but color, she writes 'is everything. Color evokes emotion, color is strong, sensual, luxurious and dramatic.'" —Los Angeles Times

"No other designer's work can be mistaken for Wearstler's fanciful wild-child interiors, which, in addition to private homes, include such influential hotels as the Viceroy Santa Monica and the Tides South Beach and the BG Restaurant at Bergdorf Goodman in Manhattan. Brash, graphic, theatrical, and skillfully layered, her rooms blend echoes of everything from 1970s funk to '40s Hollywood into head-spinning, high-energy chic." —Elle Décor

I bought this book b/c of all the rave reviews bloggers gave it. While I am not impressed with this book, I do not hate it. I would NEVER incorporate any of Kelly's decor into my own home b/c (a) I could never pull it off and (b) my home would look like it is storing mismatched furniture from craigs list and vintage stores. The book is ok IMO. It looks pretty sitting on my coffee table, but that's about it.

It's art. She assembles spaces with wild colors and clashing design but it works. The same materials in anyone else's hands would be hideous but in hers it's harmony. I can't explain it but it's inspirational. When all is wrong, you see something like this and think "someone made sense of this. someone found beauty in this madness".

It's not that I dislike this book-- although it is all pictures and practically no text-- it's that the last 2 design books I received from Amazon were mini sized! Unacceptable! And impossible to know when you're ordering! I sent it back. I love Kelly's work & her other books -- but this small size made it impossible to enjoy.

Pretty book, very feminine and mostly about designer herself and not interior design, you can do better, also make sure you read other reviews, it depends what you want.

Beautiful book from a woman with an amazing approach to design which is fresh and innovative. I own all of her design books and find inspiration whenever I look at them. Highly recommended for those who like their interior design on the cutting edge! Kelly is about eclecticism, collections, drama and fantasy. This is not a how to book, but it is instructional if you want to see what can happen when one frees herself from the mundane and embraces the exotic...love you Kelly!

Way out decorating which I found difficult to relate to in any practical or real way. Her style is different and that is very refreshing.
