Love Her?

One thing is very sure, people have strong feelings about Kelly Wearstler. Decorator extraordinaire, she has written several books and been a judge on Bravo's Top Design. She has her own design firm, KWID and is also know for her fabulous fabric/wallpaper Imperial Trellis. I like her but lately she has scared me...at least twice. Once with her hair-dos:




In all honesty she's still a beautiful girl but...Yikes!



She must have gotten a crimping iron for her birthday.

I think she looks like Joan Crawford.


And then she scared me with her "new style" shown in Domino magazine. Maybe I am not hip enough but I just don't get it...



I don't get this...



or this...

or this.



What happened to the old Kelly I used to love? She wasn't scary at all!!

The famous and fabulous Imperial Trellis wallpaper...what's not to love? This picture is from Chloe Sevigny's apartment, I love how the bicycle matches. Doesn't your bike match the wallpaper in your entrance hall?

This is one of my very favorite rooms. It is her son's room but I would feel right at home here! Love the blues and greens and how it doesn't scream "kid's room." No Sponge Bob themes that would make you want to poke your eyes out.


Kelly Wearstler
I'm not sure where this is, some fabulous restaurant in a fabulous city.


Kelly and her sons.

I don't know, she just seems so hip. And I miss her. Any thoughts? Are you a fan? Maybe along with the petition to bring back Domino we can start one to bring back the old Kelly. I'll get right on that.

  1. She does look a little scary in those photos which is too bad because she's very pretty. I love her designs, but think she's gone a bit over the top in some of the photos you've shown!

  3. Totally agree! I was left speechless with that spread....maybe the crimping got to her head.....and please tell me more about bringing back Domino! I was so sad to see it go..who wants a subscription to Lucky?? No comparison....

  4. Okay, I just found your blog today and think we could have been separated at birth. I just had to comment on this Kelly Wearstler thing too. I couldn't agree more. Her "new" style that was showcased in Domino . . . too strange for words . . . it looks like the 70's run amok! I have loved her Imperial Trellis for years and am still scheming and saving to get some in my house. I'm thinking curtains. Anyway, love your blog . . . had to tell you!!
