American interior designer Kelly Wearstler believes in balance. “Keeping a strong balance between my personal and work life is a priority for me,” says the renowned design maven. “I credit this to keeping my head clear and focused.”
This philosophy also rings true in her distinctive, multilayered designs, which are often marked with a soulful character and a well-executed juxtaposition of styles. “I’m always seeking contrasts—blending contemporary and classic, masculine and feminine, raw and refined.”
Consistently ranked as one of the top few interior designers in the world, Wearstler has been crafting interiors for more than a decade. Since the launch of her eponymous global design firm, the design powerhouse has created a plethora of notable interiors across residential, commercial, and hospitality spaces from Beverly Hills to the Caribbean.
Wearstler wields a masterful narrative approach when designing each evocative space. “Design is all about storytelling; every space has a unique and inspired narrative to tell,” she says. Her colourful career also includes launching her own collection of luxury furnishings, objets d’arts, and even signature paint hues as part of a recent collaboration with British paint giant Farrow & Ball.
