Fabulous People: Kelly Wearstler

I have mentioned Ms. Wearstler in my blog before, but I wanted to do a little Fabulous People segment on her after reading a New York Times article about her career. For those of you unfamiliar with her, Kelly Wearstler is a well known interior designer on the west coast whose style is described in the article as "cartoon-y and pop-up". She started her career in the early 90's, a time when modernism was slowly becoming a forgotten trend, and she blew away the design world with her outrageous but smart style.

I think it is amazing when people start something, be it a trend or a movement, that no one else is on board with at the start, but they stick with what they feel and create something incredible. I admire Kelly because she never went along with the crowd - she did what she felt was best (and most exciting!) and it turned out really well for her.

Kelly has an envious career; she runs her own design firm, she has designed many hotels and residences', she has fabric, rug and wallpaper lines, a home/fashion/accessories line at Bergdorf Goodman, she has authored a three books, as well as appearing as a judge on Bravo's Top Design. Basically... she rocks. Check out her stuff below.

These are a few of my favorites... not the complete line. View entire line here.
