Towering above Austin in one of the city’s tallest buildings, the brand-new 3,900 sq-ft space was a literal blank canvas of white walls, concrete floors, boxy rooms and very little character. One of Kelly’s priorities was to make the apartment as open as possible and bring the vibrancy of the surrounding life outdoors inside.
The residence pays homage to art beginning with the owner’s existing prestigious art collection to the handpainted custom wallcoverings and meticulously laid out abstract, asymmetrical marble slab floors.
Initially constructed in 1926 and then re-imagined as a classic Georgian manor by architect James Dolena in 1933, the majestic Hillcrest estate underwent its latest transformation by Kelly Wearstler.
Extravagant gleaming metals in such functional items as the kitchen cabinetry blend with playfully proportioned Italian modern 80’s furniture. The extremely durable cerused and ebonized walnut floors are seen throughout the residence pay homage to the clients’ busy lifestyle.
SEAL BEACH RESIDENCE
Kelly Wearstler defined a natural and organic palette of sandstones, shell pinks, rusts, and moonstone greys to help shape an imaginative modernist dialogue with the sea in the redesign of this four-level South California coastal escape owned by an A-list actress.
MALIBU BEACH RESIDENCE
Situated above Malibu beach’s incoming tide, this airy seaside residence belonging to Kelly Wearstler and her family signifies a new wave in the designer’s style. The home has a castaway allure with a sun-bleached colour palette that is muted yet complex, consisting of shades of driftwood taupe, misty grey, watery green and shell pink.
The 10,000 SQ. Ft. Bellagio residence was a 1939 Georgian Revival overlooking the manicured links of the bel air country club that was in need of a new modern yet classic spirit.
SPRING STREET RESIDENCE
For the design of this former 1940s warehouse-turned-residential loft in Soho, New York, Wearstler created a pied-a-terre for her clients that would maintain and enhance the loft’s industrial character while creating a cohesive and functional home.
For this NewYork apartment, Kelly channelled her signature Californian cool signature, elegantly juxtaposed with east coast sophistication and luxury.
The ebullient interiors were chronicled in Kelly’s second book, Domicilium Decoratus. To re-ignite the estate’s classic bones, she used a thoughtfully curated collection of vintage furniture, textiles, and finishes.
