Wearstler's own homes function as laboratories for her design evolution. This living room, from her 2005 Beverly Hills home, is featured in Domicilium Decoratus ($40), one of the home-decor monographs available at her boutique.
Wearstler's interiors projects span the globe, including a cluster in southern California. This travertine-backed bar is from her recent re-imagining of the Avalon Hotel in Beverly Hills.

We're wowed by interior designer Kelly Wearstler. In the past 15 years, the Angeleno has decorated prestigious residences and hotels, published books and designed retail collections of rugs, china and more.
And now she's making her fans' wardrobes over to look just as stylish, judging from her first boutique. The cream, black and gold space focuses on her fall apparel collection, which reflects her artist's sensibility: Multicolor-striped scarves ($215) and tops ($285) recall handmade wallpaper in her Hollywood mansion. Silhouettes are flattering and wearable, from blue-velvet-draped dresses ($625) to boleros in black calfskin ($1,520) and orange cotton-silk faille ($385).
We predict her evening clutches ($895 to $995) in leather with brass and stone clasps will become the new status minaudière. Her jewelry, too, is collectible, from mineral-set brass knuckle-duster rings ($195) to heavy chains hung with lapis ($395).
Since most everything in the store is for sale, including home accessories and furniture, a visit inspires us to spruce up our tabletop as well as our closet. Now that's our idea of multitasking.
