Kelly Wearstler is one of the most irreverent and fascinating designers working today, continuing to push boundaries with her inventive and opulent interiors.
For her first book in ten years, Kelly Wearstler invites readers into her latest creations including her newly designed home.
Celebrated for luxurious interiors that capture the swankiness of old-world Hollywood with a modern pop sensibility, Wearstler is known for her decadent designs of residences and boutique hotels, such as the line of Viceroys and the tastemakers Maison 140 and Avalon.
Her ornate interiors are distinctive for layers of bold textures, patterns, and rich colors juxtaposed with lustrous surfaces, adding up to a whimsical and elegant look that has been called "mod baroque."
Here Wearstler shares her creative world, profiling in detail her latest residential and commercial designs (several previously unpublished) and her sumptuous new San Francisco Proper Hotel, as well as her creative process.
Full of ideas and with beautiful images of many never-before-photographed interiors, Kelly Wearstler: Evocative Style is an inspirational look at the designer's inventive work.
When Rizzoli’s bookshop opened its doors in 1964, it was set on one of the most luxurious streets in the world, Fifth Avenue in New York, with iconic shops such as Tiffany's and Cartier as its neighbours. Its original location immediately demonstrated Rizzoli's ambition to establish itself as an icon of New York culture and luxury, a goal that was fulfilled almost immediately, and which was consolidated when in 1974 it began its activity as a publisher.
Beautifully illustrated books on architecture, interior design, fashion, photography, haute cuisine and fine art made Rizzoli New York one of the world's leading publishers.
