Kelly Wearstler is an American designer. In spring 2011 Wearstler launched her own eponymously named fashion line, Kelly Wearstler and in the Winter 2011 line was sold exclusively by Bergdorf Goodman, and featured ready-to-wear, clutches and jewelry.

In 1995 Wearstler opened her design firm, Kelly Wearstler Interior Design (Kwid). In the late 1990s, she decorated the house of real estate developer Brad Korzen (whom she married in 2002), eventually providing design services for residential properties owned by Korzen’s Kor Realty Group. Wearstler would go on to redo the interior of the Avalon, a late 1940s-era hotel in Beverly Hills owned by Korzen. This launched her foray into hotel interior design, creating what the New York Times has described as “retro-theatrical” interiors for Korzen’s collection of boutique hotels, Viceroy Hotels and Resorts.

Her work within the hotel industry built her reputation as a notable west coast designer. Wearstler also designed the restaurant and lounge, BG, at the Manhattan Bergdorf Goodman store.

The Most Iconic Projects

The 10,000 sq. ft. Bellagio Residence was a 1939 Georgian Revival overlooking the manicured links of the Bel Air Country Club that was in need of a modern touch. Stripped down to the studs, Wearstler worked to create an additional 3,000 sq. ft. of living space, pushed up the ceiling heights, broadened windows and doors to allow more light and completely carved out a new master suite upstairs.

The focus of the house was clearly the ocean, and Wearstler worked, as she says, “to bring the outside in.” In the living room, floor-to-ceiling windows frame the spectacular Pacific. At the center of the house, an enormous skylight was installed and sunshine pours in from above; one leafy tree, soaring two stories high, was planted in the main hall. The color palette, muted and complex, was drawn from the oceanfront setting: silvery barnacle gray, spindrift white and driftwood taupe.

All of the building materials— bleached walnut flooring, Douglas-fir kitchen cabinetry, wave-patterned marble walls—seem to mirror the natural setting. “The marble is so organic and full of movement, it feels like the ocean,” says Wearstler, “or like being inside a shell.”

A range of marble—from watery green to brooding storm-cloud black—was used throughout the house as wall coverings, custom vanities and dramatic fireplace surrounds. There are tiny, spiraling, fossilized shells embedded within the marble kitchen counter, and an enormous sculpture of a chambered nautilus in the foyer seems to tumble to the floor, evoking a Jules Verne vision where the known world spins into the imaginary (a Wearstler trademark).
