A dining room's design is an interplay between curved and angular shapes.
Photos throughout by Grey Crawford.
Rhapsody gives readers a peek at the inspiration trays of textures and materials Wearstler prepares for her projects.
Diminutive and stylish, interior decorator Kelly Wearstler has spread herself thin of late--in the last couple years she?s launched a fashion label and she?s opened a glittering West Hollywood retail shop where her home and clothing lines happily comingle. Now her third book is out, and reading it is like having a lushly photographed entrée into her world.
Rhapsody is chockablock with arresting images by photographer Grey Crawford. There?s a breathtaking two-story fireplace by noted Fresno sculptor Stan Bitters in an A-list actress?s home, and a dining room in which lights shaped like children?s jacks hang over brass tables and an Escher-like inlaid floor.
Text is minimal, with bon mots sprinkled throughout like song lyrics. (We learned that Wearstler thinks of metal in a room like jewelry on an outfit, for example.) We also loved seeing the way her fashion choices affect her decor--for instance, we noted the same brown-and-black-tie-dyed suede used in a jacket and on two vintage French chairs.
In hardcover, the book runs $35, but there?s a limited-edition version featuring a perforated metal sleeve available for $295. Whichever one you go with, it?s guaranteed to add a little of Wearstler?s decorating panache to your coffee table.
