During the Design Bloggers Conference, the question was posed: “If you could meet one person dead or alive, who would it be?” Kelly Wearstler was my response. I admire her daring design and attention to detail.
My first year out of design school was very challenging, to say the least. I hadn’t traveled much at this point and Louisiana was painfully traditional (heavy, dark fabrics and furniture that covered every inch, it seemed, of any surface that could be adorned.) I wondered how long I would have to bear these things I secretly detested, and thank goodness the internet was starting to come into its glory. I was able to find a style that was exciting, different, and unexpected….Hollywood Regency! (I hear Angels singing!)
On my L.A. trip, I found so many inspiring stores, landscape, and architecture, that I decided to push my trip back a day and
check in woo my way on my friends’ sofa, at Kelly Wearstler’s Hollywood Hotel. Instead of swags and tassels, Kelly has layered the Chamberlain Hotel with bold geometric patterns, mirrors, and pops of color. Thank you Lisa Ferguson & Jennifer Brouwer for so graciously sharing your room!
Successful design requires repititon of shapes, patterns, and/or color. You can see how she has carried the geometric pattern throughout.
Even the ceiling didn’t go unnoticed.
Notice the repetition of smaller artwork that makes a large impact.
I love a beautiful vignette.
Here’s our room:
What a great way to divide the space!
There is only a 1-2 inch step down in the shower. It is subtle but functional, and makes the flooring into the shower look seamless.
Chamberlain’s Bistro designed with Old World Glamour in mind.
The canopy detail diffuses light.
I was able to
get a little work done think about which Hollywood celebrity I would run into next on the rooftop pool deck.
I believe the outdoors should be as beautiful as your interiors.
The monogrammed lounge chair covers can be easily removed. Can you see why a designer is never really on vacation? Our minds never rest…I’m taking pictures of terrycloth!
Even our tray paper was glamorous!
What do you think? Are you ready to add a little glamour to your home!?
