TASTEMAKER: KELLY WEARSTLER

 

Known for her vivid aesthetic, award-winning designer Kelly Wearstler’s distinctive, contemporary style has been a major contributing factor to re-emergence of the florid and decorative interior design style known as maximalism.

But her talents don’t end there – the Kelly Wearstler studio produces everything from ready-to-wear, accessories and fine jewelry, to architecture, product and graphic design, in addition to interior design for commercial and residential clients.

Kelly, who lives in L.A. with her husband hotelier Brad Korzen and her two sons (Elliott, 9, and, Oliver, 10), spoke with us about gifting, her inspirations and her favorite L.A. spots.

What is the best gift you’ve ever received?
“Love and family. Original art from my boys. They play in a three-piece band called The Negotiators. They write some of their own music – their songs are great. I love watching them play.”

What gift have you given that you’re most proud of?
“Love. The best things in life are free.”

Tell us about your fantasy birthday party

”I love intimate family affairs. My favorite parties are relaxed with loved ones nearby at our homes in Beverly Hills or Malibu. We have a cake tradition at our home. Every year for the boys’ birthdays we get a big round cake with the year they are turning in big marzipan numbers on top. It’s a neat trick. I can always tell just what year it was when we look back through the family photo library together.”

What are three things inspiring you right now?
“All things metal. I love mixing metals with different patinas and textures. It can be raw or refined. I love playing with that tension.

“Book stores. I just got back from a trip to New York. Every time I go I come home with bags and bags from the Strand Book Store. I’m on a perpetual hunt for inspiring design or art books. I love finding out-of-print titles. I sell a curated selection of my favorite hard-to-find ones in my flagship store [on Melrose Avenue, West Hollywood].

“San Francisco. We’re designing a new hotel brand in the city in a cool up-and-coming area. It reminds me of the Bowery back in the day. It’s so cool and energizing to be a part of this community that is so charged and forward-moving.”

What are three must-stop venues if you have just 24 hours in Los Angeles?
LACMA – there’s always something interesting happening. Be it an exhibit or a special screening. I love that it’s a smaller museum that’s impeccably curated. Ideal for a Saturday trip, and their gift shop is great.

Urth Caffe. My family is crazy about Urth Cafe. Fresh local ingredients, delicious juices, and my favorite espresso in town.

The Greek Theater – it’s so amazing in the summer. We just saw the Gypsy Kings play. California weather is famously awesome. It’s an iconic landmark and beautiful. An amazing place to picnic and take in an evening of great music.”

Federico Throw – Missoni Home
“Luxurious and classic, a designer throw makes a great housewarming gift and keepsake.”

Clear Charm Candy Bowl – Alexandra Von Furstenberg
This candy dish is spirited and cool. I place dishes around my home as little catch-alls for keys, jewelry, lipsticks. Or this is a great accent for a table setting. I love to give hostess gifts that can be put to use straight away at the party.”

MP3204235-107-Main
GiftLab Exclusive Rose Quartz Jewelry Box – Kelly Wearstler
My super-luxe bauble boxes are my new go-to gift. I hand-select each stone, so they are all one-of-a-kind and have a distinct personality. Each stone has a different, I’m constantly learning about their different properties and uses. Lapis for creativity, rose quartz for the heart…”

Walk us through your gifts:
Donatella Versace Doll – I love to collect these Mua Mua Dolls, they are comical, fun, and have a touch of Tim Burton eeriness. A voodoo doll with a sense of humor. The function and style of a Panama hat make it the perfect gift. Bea Valdes’ Moro Clutch – I love the print of this clutch bag. Mix and match with other prints or use it as a centerpiece for a monochromatic outfit. The Artel tumblers are the perfect housewarming gift for summer months. I love the mix-and-match effect. The perfect balance of hard and soft, and delicate design in Aurélie Bidermann gives this tough cuff a lacy effect. And I love the timelessness and humor of the Fornasetti serving tray.

What is the best gift you’ve ever received?
The best gift I ever received was a beautiful Leica camera when my son was born. It captured many moments of happiness and was a thoughtful and different baby gift.

What gift have you given that you’re most proud of?
I enjoy giving gifts that I can have engraved or monogrammed. Going that extra step to personalize makes all the difference.

Tell us about your fantasy birthday party? Location, people, cake, live music, anything.

Accessories – they are the quickest way to get into the trends.
