LA interior designer Kelly Wearstler keeps on amazing the design world. After making her name with Hollywood regency style commercial interiors of the Viceroy hotels, the Avalon in Beverly Hills, and the Tides in Miami Beach, she turns a corner and comes up with something completely new and now.
Two books, a special Bergdorf Goodman collection of accessories, three rug collections and TV show host later, she has come out with a line for Goundworks of Lee Jofa. Groundworks, the contemporary brand of Lee Jofa, breaks new ground asking design talent to create something unique and unexpected as Ashley Hicks and Thomas O'Brien did. Her ability to mix gorgeous objects from different styles and areas define her interiors. Here, Kelly's collection shows Asian and vintage textile influences. The unique color range incorporates fifteen printed and woven fabrics and nine trims in a variety of colorways, each inspired by her travels and nature.
