Kelly Wearstler

What an absolute whirlwind it's been since our week in LA as part of BlogTour! I arrived home from Los Angeles last Wednesday, only to turn around the next day and travel for another 5 days for work and then for a wedding.  Not complaining, but man, does it feel absolutely blissful to be back at home with my feet firmly planted in my normal routine after 2 and a half long weeks on the road and away from my family! I'm also super excited to be home so that we can FINALLY start giving you the scoop on our incredible BlogTourLA adventures... and really, where better to start than with one of our design idols, Kelly Wearstler? We spent a whole afternoon at Kelly's design headquarters, able to wander around freely, talk with Kelly and just absorb the beauty of her space. For all of us BlogTour design geeks, the ability to get a sense for Kelly's creative process was an experience we'll not soon forget.

Here's the entry to her space, immediately coming off of the elevator...

The most glamorous conference room ever...

Where the design magic happens (there's Kelly walking by in the background)...

I developed a bit of an obsession over the chairs in her space...

Another chair. Loving that lilac leather paired with antique brass...

Afterwards, we hit the Kelly Wearstler store on Melrose for a little retail therapy and what fun it was...

Tami sipped some tea from Kelly's stunning china...

We all found some bling to bring home....

And it has to be said that Kelly is about the kindest, most sincere person we've met in this business in a long time. She is down to earth, approachable, and wicked-talented. What a combo!

Here's Tami and I with Kelly...

If you haven't yet seen Kelly Wearstler's Proust on Design interview that she did for CLOTH & KIND back in August of this year, you must check it out here. We appreciate her answers even more after having experienced her in person.

 

A heartfelt thank you to Kelly for opening up her space to us and for being such a gracious host.
